A Pinch of Me

haircut 2014 001

Newspaper and other ephemera, along with coloured threads, are often the catalysts for my imaginative collages. The collages are often partly a “found poem” and partly a colour “weaving”. The kind of art that I enjoy looking at is quite diverse, but includes line and wash, semi-abstract and fibre work. My current favourite artist is Utrillo. My favourite (life-long) novel is “The Diary of a Nobody”, but I prefer to read diaries, poetry or books with pictures generally. I admire all those who work for peace in the world. I live in the North West of England. I support Littleborough Arts Festival as a visitor and as a  committee member.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my site and liking some of my galleries. You have a wonderful collection od art, poetry and music. It was a pleasure stopping by to visit!

  2. Hi. Your blog is, indeed, a little counter by the roadside… I love the line in one of your posts:
    So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
    Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

    Thanks for visiting my blog so that I could find yours, Anna

    • Hi Anna

      Welcome! Your illustrations are great. My cousin, born in New Zealand, lives in Christchurch, I hope everything is getting back to normal there now.

      Best wishes


  3. Angie,
    I really enjoyed wandering about in your run down cinema. It is a very comfortable place, Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could in turn find you. I love the combination of collage, poetry and music – the blog is kind of like a collage of a different sort.

    Wishing you great froths of Cherry Blossoms

    • Hi Hilary

      So sorry for the delay in replying. I wouldn’t call myself the world’s must technically savvy person! My wordpress stops are always a bit rushed as I’m off line at home (and loving it).

      You blog totally cool. I will have a good look at it shortly.

      Very best wishes to you all (I’m presuming you are Hilary England).

      Love from Angie xxxxxxx

  4. I found your blog because of a post you wrote a while back about Douglas Malloch’s poem A Crazy Quilt. Just wanted to say that I like your February 2015 post very much, and would have commented there, but didn’t see how to do so.

    • Dear Judy

      Many thanks for your comment. I’m so sorry for the delay in replying. I’m just catching up with my messages and feel terribly rude that I’ve missed them thus far. It was very kind of you to take the trouble to comment. You name sounds familiar, so I’ve obviously read your blog, but I will put the name to the “face” in a minute. Very best wishes love Angie (salty pinches)xxxxxxxx

    • Of course, now I know your “face”. Thank you for the beautiful worlds you create. I love to look at textiles mostly. I feel peaceful just looking at them. I’m not very technical so am having to send you message here!

  5. Hi Angie, do you remember the kitten I smuggled into the house!!!!! Mum thought it was a rat…..ooops. I love yr blog/collage/work in progress and so does Jess, she feels very special.

    • yEAH, COURSE I do. the BIG event! Hee hee. Sorry for delay in replying. I’m so not a wordpress techy person. I will check my messages in future. Bet everyone thinks I’m terribly rude. I can’t draw bikes and kittens though… bye for now tillyflop luv saltsomexxxxxxxx
