I've been checking out other artists and open exhibitions within the locale as I'm interested to see the type of work that's out there and how my art compares. Today I visited the Herts Visual Arts (HVA) Summer Exhibition which is held in Harpenden, a very pleasant leafy Hertfordshire town in England, UK. So not only did I have the opportunity to peruse art and chat to artists - I also enjoyed lovely afternoon which absolutely required a visit to one of the charming pubs in the area!

She was so enthusiast about her work and explained her unique printing technique to me. I had lots of questions about her work - I feel if I pick the brains of the artists I meet it might help me move forward in my own art - I wanted to know what inspired her, how she created her work, her techniques, and she was most forthright in chatting to me - so thank you! These photos really don't do the work justice - she uses gold leaf which lifts elements in her prints, and I strongly suggest that if you can see her work, and she exhibits widely, that you do. People understand the world in many different ways - and although some of their beliefs are not my beliefs - I appreciate that they are looking to express their own ideas of spirituality through art.
