Philippa Leith's birds fantasy

Sunday 19 July 2009

Philippa's work is full of small details, old letters, postcards, drawings, cut out beautiful shapes in the form of flowers, leaves, mushrooms, butterflies...

In her own words...I am passionate about drawing and I am inspired by nature, colour and texture. I create handcrafted, delicate shapes and forms and I also like to include the intricate and the detailed.

The point of departure for my graduate collection was British birdlife, yet this soon evolved to include salvaged un-wanted treasures, illuminating their whimsical beauty in delicate collages.
