Bridget Arnold

I was born and bred in Devon, so my passion for nature and the place that I live comes from that connection.

Dartmoor Inspiration

I am fortunate to be living next to the Granite Tramway that runs from Haytor on Dartmoor to Teigngrace, this is where I walk and destress. Collecting plants and Feathers from my walks has been my inspiration for lots of my work.

 

Seashore 

My other love is for the seashore as I was brought up in the South Hams spending holidays and breaks in my Happy Place on the beach. Seaweed and Feathers have also been collected from Beaches to add to my stash of glorious objects to Sun print.

Cyanotype 

Sun Printing is an old technique called Cyanotype it is a form of Primitive photography pioneered by Botanist Anna Atkins in the 1840’s she collected Seaweed and recorded and labelled them all to make several Books that are still available to see in Museums around the world.

Lampshades 

My current work is to create Beautiful and Useful Cyanotype Lampshades and other household objects. These bring me great pleasure. Bringing the Outside inside
