About : Patty Callaghan - Artist based in Macclesfield, Cheshire

I work as an artist and teacher based on the edge of the Peak District.  I create papier mache birds and animals and I also produce paintings and mixed media work of animals and landscapes.  My work is inspired by the bike rides I take in our beautiful local landscape - the hills, lakes and woods; the changing weather; fleeting glimpses of birds and mammals.  I try to capture the spirit and character of my subjects over and above a literal interpretation. Wherever possible I like to recycle and re-use materials, both for ecological reasons but also for the creative discoveries that can be made in cutting, tearing and re-purposing.  It oftern leads me down unexpected paths to destinations I may not otherwise have reached.
