Spark: thirteen

A series about people that have influenced my creative path

lewinAngie Lewin, Meadow II, lithograph

Just over six years ago, on a trip to Honiton with my parents, we ended up visiting the Hybrid Gallery. Part of their exhibition included a series of prints by Angie Lewin. At that time I had not heard of her, but I immediately fell in love with her work as it reminds me of the 1950’s design style that I have always admired. As a significant birthday was soon approaching my parents very generously bought me this lithograph which now hangs on our sitting room wall. I also have her beautifully illustrated book Garden Wisdom, a collection of garden advice compiled by Leslie Geddes-Brown.

  1. We really do have a lot in common Juliet! I’ve been a big fan of Angie Lewin’s work for a while now. I recently found out that my uncle, also a printmaker, was friendly with Angie and her husband Simon and at a recent opening he had in Edinburgh he introduced me to them.
    I have to admit to being more than a little star struck and my son said my gushing was a bit over the top! They were a lovely couple though and we had a really nice conversation.
