Daisy Magee adds a touch of nostalgia to the gallery

A hoarder of unwanted ephemera, a maker of marks and a collector of words, phrases and rhymes, Daisy is a process driven mixed media and textile artist, whose work embraces the spirit of ‘make do and mend,’ ‘waste not, want not’ and ‘hand crafted.'

Scraps of once used fabric, beads from a broken necklace, old, torn, printed paper, vintage silk threads and worn buttons, all evoke memories of grandma’s sewing box; a safe and homely place.

Every unwanted item has their own story to tell and spilling from boxes, envelopes, jars and baskets in her North Norfolk studio, they all find a home in Daisy’s one off artworks.

Daisy studied at the Norwich School of Art, gaining her BA in Visual Studies. Her practise is both visual and tactile.

INTRODUCING NEW HOLT photographer, Andrew Bamforth

Andrew is originally from South Yorkshire but moved to Holt, North Norfolk in 2012.

Besides his love of motorbikes, which has taken him touring across most of the UK and Europe, he has had a lifelong enthusiasm and passion for photography.

As well as photographing local events, Andrew's biggest inspiration has been the local landscape and wildlife in his home county. He beautifully portrays the North Norfolk coast and big skies which Norfolk is famous for, in both black and white and colour.
