All this month we have been taking a virtual tour around The Handmade Shop and Gallery. Tucked between gift shops and florists in Bury St Edmunds, this wonderful little gallery could outshine those in London.
In our final look at the artists, this week I am focusing on Jane Crick, who creates stationary, housewares and limited edition prints.
Jane, or Janey to all her friends, is by her own admission an incredibly loud, bright and lively kind of person. Inspired by her love of flowers and nature, she combines this with her graphic design skills of over 20 years, to produce bold designs using flat colour and shape to convey form and texture.
As Christmas is only round the corner, I thought I would show you one of her designs available to purchase as gift wrap, card and gift tags. This beautiful robin on a holly bush painting of Janes has been used to create this coordinating gift wrap and is available to purchase on her website along with numerous other designs.
Jane has simply hundreds of items on her website and within the shop and I urge you to take a look at her work.
At VIP Balloons we love art and design in whatever form and each Monday we will post ideas and examples that we have found and like. Often we use these pieces to inspire us with our creations. If you would like us to create some balloon art or decor based on something you have seen, contact us and we will work with you to come up with ideas
