Kimmy Priggen

Capturing that all important ‘twinkle in the eye’ is what makes my art so popular. I have always had a passion for painting, particularly animals for my own pleasure and I’ve found that people really appreciate the way I focus on capturing the animal’s personality and character and really ‘bring them to life’. Recently I’ve taken it up more seriously since taking voluntary redundancy from my job as a diamond valuer in 2008. Although not formally trained, I have learnt from two exceptionally talented local artists with very differing styles, who have given me real insight and showed me how to take my art to another level.
I am fundraising for some animal charities that are close to my heart, particularly International Animal Rescue, to which I am very committed, and I enjoy painting for them. Profits from prints of the baby Orang Utan ‘Punk Baby’ all go to this charity as well as 10% of profits from ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Punk Sister’. I hope you enjoy looking at my art.

Nettleton Pottery

I am a ceramic artist working from a garden studio in Lancashire. I work in porcelain which has a very delicate appearance, yet is a strong medium, and is perfect for exploring form and texture. The inspiration for my hand built sculptural ceramics is derived from ever changing seasonal landscapes and environments, finding beauty in the textures, colours and patterns that are revealed through the world around us.
My work is heavily steeped in family history, and intertwined with childhood ramblings amongst rock pools.

Shamrock and Pearl

I’m Alex, the one-woman band behind Shamrock and Pearl.  I create woven home decor items and accessories such as wall hangings, coasters and bookmarks, although I’m always itching to try out new projects when I get the chance 
Shamrock and Pearl was launched in November last year during my maternity leave and the name is inspired by my husband (who is Irish) and my daughter (whose name means Pearl).  
There is a lot of texture and colour in my pieces, and you’ll almost always find a little sparkle added in there too! They are a tactile piece of art that will stand out beautifully in your home.  Generally my wall hangings are unique ready-made pieces, but I’m always happy to have custom orders and commissions, especially for the nursery items I make.  I sell through my Etsy shop, but happy to chat through Instagram DMs if you have any questions.
Everything is handmade with love and a little bit of sparkle – I genuinely love weaving and crafting and hope that comes through in everything that I make.
