Tania Holland Gallery was established in 2008 in the Shropshire market town of Bridgnorth and relocated in 2016 to the historic Red House Glass Cone Museum and Craft Centre in Stourbridge. Tania offers an original collection of punny animal designs in the form of collage on canvas and mixed media sculpture. Each original “Wordplay Menagerie” design incorporates a second motif or theme that together create a visual pun and every piece includes a fictitious dictionary style definition of the pun that it represents.
I am a mixed media artist, and often use landscape as my inspiration. I gather drawings and photographs and then work intuitively and collage ideas together. Presently I am using fabric and stitch. The journey and the process are the things that trigger my inspiration and the semi abstract works I produce, leave the viewer to make their own interpretation
Works in inks, acrylics, earth pigments, dyes and pastels on cloth and paper with the enhancement of stitch and word. Inspired by the richness of the earth and all it has to offer in the forms of organic texture, natural colour and heritage. Maggie has studied at local colleges and under renowned tutors in the field of design and mark making. In love with colour, she enjoys playing around with it in all its forms to produce her works which are mainly abstract in nature. Maggie is an Associate Member of The Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen and can be seen at Malvern Spring and Autumn Shows, The three Choirs Festival and Dore Abbey as part of the English Choral Experience; She is a member of The Shropshire Visual Art Network and regularly exhibits in the Street Gallery in Shrewsbury.
I design all of my own artwork, using a variety of mixed media to create, including textiles, print making, collage and sculpture. Inspiration comes from my surrounding environment, particularly the area where I live, which borders the Montgomery canal and River Severn. Situated in beautiful countryside, it has an abundance of flora, fauna and wildlife.
