Featured Artist – Maggie Winnall

Founder of the Art Oyster – the oyster card wallet as an art form – Maggie Winnall creates art that affirms a positive mindset to remind you that goals, dreams and desires are possible. Vintage fabric, individually selected threads and attention to colour make each art work original. The detailed hand cut, hand stitched process ensures loving intent is put into each piece and carries a message of hope for success on the journey through life. This Art Oyster series is complemented by artwear handbag collection and abstract contemporary quilt art.

Featured Artist – Estelle Vincent

Estelle is a photographer and educator based in London. Coming originally from a film studies background, she went on studying photography at Camberwell College of Arts and holds a Masters in Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths University. Her work focuses on the varied elements and environments that combine to create cities; from established images of landmarks to the smallest detail and found imagery.

Estelle will be exhibiting a selection of analogue photographic works at Lowie including hand painted liquid emulsion on tiles and embroidery on found imagery.

Featured Artist – Diane Goldie

Diane Goldie is an artist who works in textile and paint, making wearable art (clothes / accessories), home furnishings and embroidered paintings. She also has a large collection of paintings and drawings from life and soft sculpture as well as a small collection of very weird crocheted dollies.

Trained as a fine artist 30 years ago, Diane spent the last 25 years working as a puppeteer but has now focused on the thing that really drives her: making art. Currently working as the supplier of Fashionable Fashionista artist Sue Kreitzman’s fabulous kimono style coats, Diane’s signature style of wearable art is hand painting and bold applique on african batik fabric, creating a vibrant and bold colour style statement. Diane’s mission is to elevate craft and let it sit side by side with art.
