The embossed and foil-stamped cover of this slimline (size 152x80mm) ruled journal features an image by the Rutland-based painter and printmaker Angela Harding, who specialises in depictions of the British countryside and wildlife. Includes a pocket at the back for scraps and receipts, two ribbon markers, rose-red endpapers and robust ivory text paper.
For the past 33 years since training in Fine Art at Leicester Polytechnic and specialising in printmaking at Nottingham Trent University, Angela Harding has continued her own fine art practice, as well as working professionally within the arts and raising a family.
Angela has lived in Rutland (the smallest county in the UK) since 1988. She first arrived in the county as Artist in Residence at Uppingham School and has lived there ever since. For the past 10 years Angela has worked solely on her art practice in the village of Wing – which is very apt for a woman inspired by birds. Her studio is at the bottom of the garden and houses all she needs to make her work, including a recently acquired Rochat Albion press.
