All Seasons Arts by Carol Messham
About All Seasons Arts
All Seasons Arts was founded by Carol Messham in 2010.
She trained at Harrogate Art College in Foundation Art and Leeds University in Landscape Architecture. She spent more than 20 years designing and planting gardens, with plants flowers and wildlife providing inspiration for her paintings. Now retired from garden design she has much more time for painting, and has exhibited in various galleries in Yorkshire with one-man shows in 2009 at the Summit Bookshop, Kirkbymoorside and at the Helmsley Art Centre in September 2009 and October 2014.
Her paintings are done in watercolour with the themes being around the countryside and plants and wildlife found there in. These images are not only used to produce prints, cards and candles etc. but also a range of jewellery. The jewellery includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches, keyrings and handbag charms. Images are mounted int silver plated bezels of various shapes, i.e. herts, rounds, squares with glass domed cabochon covers. The jewellery comes in different sizes and forms, from pendants to linked chains.
Carol is also developing a new enterprise as a polymer clay artist. This is a medium which allows for shaping flowers into three dimensional forms which can then be used to make into various jewellery and gift items.
