Inspiration - The Art of Annemieke Mein
Wildlife artist in textiles

I borrowed this book from my local library and found it is
very fascinating inspiring book. It is all about amazing art work
 of Annemieke Mein display a rare standard f artistry. She has 
explored beyond the bounds of craft and developed new techniques 
in her use of textiles and fabric paints. She reveals a highly developed
sense of colour, a masterly grasp of composition and subtle use 
of light and shade.
