Even in the winter months, there’s incredible plant life to be found on Ynys Môn (Anglesey). From the beaches to the forests, the grasses and foliage of the island offer textures and colours only seen in this season. This botanical collection by Janet Bell explores the subject in earthy and neutral tones and includes some splashes of colour from those plants in her garden that are hardy enough to make it through the darker days.
During the 2020-2021 winter lockdown, a five mile travel restriction was imposed on Welsh residents. From this restriction, Janet Bell saw an opportunity to create art in a completely different way to her usual techniques. She began walking the five mile radius from her home in Ynys Môn (Anglesey), collecting images that were specific to this area. This included the spectacular view across the Menai Strait to Conwy and Eryri (Snowdonia), and the plant life found in the wild and her own home and garden. The result was a collection of watercolours, dubbed Studio:b, and Janet’s first book, Five Miles.
Studio:b prints are giclée printed on high-quality, smooth, fine art archival paper. They are unmounted and unsigned, perfect for a modern, minimal look. Each print comes in a cardboard tube and will need to be flattened before framing (instructions are included). If you’re interested in frames, look at our range here.
