'COLOUR ME HAPPY'
A solo exhibition of the work of Migglet
An ex-professional dancer and self-taught artist, I love to create movement and emotion in my artwork.
I moved to Devon almost 5 years ago and joined my friendly Bishopsteignton art group to meet some local people. Something arty just clicked and I haven't looked back since!
The thrill of creating is a rollercoaster of emotions and each piece I work on has it's own character, whether it is a person or an animal I am capturing on my easel.
Dancers, Figures, Portraits and Quirky Animals, I simply cannot decide which I prefer to paint, so I enjoy creating them all!
My quirky animals have more than a hint of happy in their crazy little faces, and some are definitely more daft than others. If my work can put a smile on someone's face, that always makes me do the happy dance!
I am a member of the Devon Artists Network, recently joined the Torbay Guild of Artists, and I was absolutely thrilled to have recently won 'Best Painting in Show' at the Spanish Barn Exhibition, Torre Abbey for my painting of a dancer titled 'Reverie'
My husband is incredibly supportive and together we launched my website migglet.co.uk in August 2018. I had no idea how much work would be involved even though my 'HIM' did warn me and we continue to update and add to my site as I create new work, which is pretty often so I really do have a job keeping up with myself!
I work in a variety of mediums from watercolour and inks to pastels and acrylics and use a riot of colour at times, but also adore the simplicity of monochrome which can simply 'say' so much.
You will find me, ArtyMigglet on Facebook & Instagram and of course on my site migglet.co.uk
