I have studio in an old factory building in Burns St Northampton. Within the building there are many different creatives, dressmakers, designers, painters , potters and an upholsterer. Today I’m going to introduce you to my friend Angela Stanbridge. Angela and I met years ago (too many years ago) as mature student at The University of Northampton. We shared a space there and now we are in studios opposite one another in Burns St.
I found this old sketch I made of Burns St.
Here is Angela in her studio.
This was a fantastic commission that went off to America.
Angela’s specialism is painting flowers , in particular tulips. (I know this isn’t a tulip!)
We often wander over to The Good Loaf which is close by for a coffee and a catch up! Sadly the Good Loaf has been closed due to COVID , so we are missing our chats.
Angela is also the chair of Network Arts, a Northants based art group that offer workshops and exhibition opportunities, for a couple of years I was also on the committee, which I found really rewarding and I met many lovely people. I definitely recommend volunteering for them.
Minnie Teckman, I'm a fine artist that loves oil painting, drawing, portraiture, animals and urban sketching.
