“Liz Huxley”

“I grew up in a small rural village near Chelmsford with the surrounding countryside as my playground, and I soon developed an interest in wildlife.  In particular, I enjoyed watching the birds that came into the garden, and those that we encountered on family holidays on the Norfolk Broads; and as a young teenager I was given my first pair of binoculars and field guide. 

Over the years birdwatching became my main hobby, and I have been on many “birding” holidays in various parts of the UK and also abroad (including Majorca, France, Spain, New England, Sweden, Estonia, Belarus, Israel, Lesbos, Cyprus, Greece …).  However, Frinton is now “home” and East Anglia my “playground” – Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk all boasting some wonderful nature reserves; and I have a brilliant ‘local patch’ at Holland Haven.

At some point I decided that rather than just seeing and listing birds I’d try to build up a photo list of all the species I’d seen.  So began a new challenge and an interest in photography; and also a developing knowledge of other wildlife groups, particularly butterflies and dragonflies.

I was fortunate enough to spend 15 years working for Essex Wildlife Trust at Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre, where I was able to indulge my passion for wildlife and share my knowledge with others. Photography is now giving me a new vehicle to do that!  I set up my business in September 2015 taking wildlife photographs, giving illustrated talks and leading guided walks.  I started years ago with a Praktica 35mm SLR film camera, moved on through a couple of compact digitals (and digiscoping with varying degrees of success!) to now use a Nikon Coolpix P610 bridge camera. Hope you enjoy the results!”

I have a strong interest in colour, typography, pattern and print and feel that this comes through in my work. I have several music-inspired pieces that would make perfect gifts for music-lovers, along with many other colourful wall art pieces, motivational quote posters and postcards, and greetings cards for different occasions (often with a humorous twist!)”

It ranges from beads to figures and house name plaques. Even wedding cake toppers. Commissions are welcome. Crafty Jack demonstrates whilst selling and is available to give talks and demonstrations.   Also basic bead making courses in Colchester and Maldon.”
