“Small Wonders”

August 13 - August 18

Free

An Exhibition of Paintings by Katie Bird at Colonnade House Studio Gallery.

From Tuesday 13th to Sunday 18th inclusive.

I have always been fascinated by wildlife; in particular the small creatures that go unnoticed in our busy world. Living in Sussex has provided the ideal setting to observe nature and I take inspiration from the beautiful downs, woodlands and coast line that surround me. I grew up with a love of children’s book illustrations; in particular Arthur Rackham’s style and subject matter has had a huge influence on the way I draw. I am intrigued by the things that lurk in the undergrowth, the creatures that hide and flit about; my artwork represents my passion for these tiny beasts. For the majority of my illustrations, I made a conscious decision not to add any detail in the background. By removing these creatures from their hiding places and capturing them on a stark white page, I hope to simultaneously highlight their vulnerability and majesty.

My illustrations combine colour pencil work with acrylics and ink.
