Jane Perkins, who we interviewed in a podcast on the Arts+Culture site as part of our Devon Open Studios coverage, is set to go on the Alan Titchmarsh show on Monday, September 28.
Jane, who received enquires and sales following the podcast on Arts+Culture, specialises in memory brooches, made with found materials, and she is now branching out into 3-D portraiture.
How does she incorporate the found materials with the portraits?
“I decide who I want to do and then sift through everything I’ve got to find the right colours and the things that look right. The first one I did was the Queen. I wanted to do someone everyone would recognise,” she said.
It’s an approach that has won popularity, and she’s picked up People’s Vote prizes in both Newcastle and at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton.
Listen to the full interview, and watch her on the Alan Titchmarsh show.
