Barbara Maddox FITA Member and Secretary is rightfully proud of her  Grandson.  Evidence that creative talent is naturally born in the family!

REWARD: May I, on behalf of all members at City Voices Creative Writers Group congratulate Daniel Tatton, on being named Stoke-on-Trent‘s first poet laureate. Since joining our group a few years ago as our youngest ever member, Daniel has gone from strength to strength and has always delighted our members with his poetry. It is such a refreshing change that, amid all the bad press, someone of Daniel’s age is making the headlines for the right reason. Daniel’s mother and father must feel immensely proud, for they have always been there to support him and are always first to offer their help at our events. Once again well done Daniel, you thoroughly deserve the title and will no doubt provide inspiration for others to follow.

Artist Statement.

Mediums : Acrylic, Water-colour, Encaustic Wax.

Barbara arrived on the beautiful island of Cyprus following a successful Artistic career in Britain, where she taught and exhibited widely, with many solo exhibitions. She was also artist in residence at Euchan House Gallery, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.

For many years Barbara was a member of the Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society and was regularly accepted into their prestigious annual exhibition which covers the south of Scotland and attracts visitors from all over the world.

This area of Scotland is also where Barbara had her own studio/gallery and which due to the location has had a lasting effect on her work of Landscape painting. The ever changing light and the majestic mountains are a particular focal point in her work and are often commented upon.

The depth of colour of the Acrylic Palette is particularly suited to this Artists work. Barbara is adept at depicting the realism and truth to nature which is an important component in the field of Landscape painting.

Barbara also uses the medium of Water-colour, at times preferring the soft muted tonal colours in contrast to the brilliance of the Acrylic palette.

Another medium which Barbara uses is Encaustic Wax. This medium offers the opportunity to link the modern palette with the Ancient, as Encaustic wax art dates back to the Ancient Egyptians who used to paint images on the Sarcophagus of Mummies, some of which still survive today.

Encaustic means literally to burn in, it is a method of painting with sticks of coloured Bees wax which is melted onto hot irons and applied in such a way as to form an image. Paint brushes are not used in this Artists work as all the detail is made by the delicate use if the and flat surface of the irons.
