Award for artist’s mighty work

A Pinchbeck artist has won a prestigious award for her image of a Lincolnshire plant.

Julie Eyett from Pinchbeck was one of three winners named out of 130 entrants for the Lincolnshire Plants Exhibition.

It’s part of Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s National Lottery Heritage Fund supported LoveLincsPlants project which this year asked for entrants to create works based on the county’s 30 most renowned plant species.

Julie’s work English Oak will be part of The Lincspirational Plants Exhibition launch at the Wilderspin National School Museum in Barton-on-Humber as part of the Barton Arts Festival on Saturday June 26 and Sunday June 27 from 10am – 4pm.

In the autumn, the exhibition will become an evening spectacle with the artworks projected at many times their original size onto large screens at venues across the county.

Julie is a keen nature lover and is a member of the trust, the South West Society of Botanical Artists and The Royal Society of Botanical Artists.

She’s also been helping out with the Wombles of Spalding Common.

“I think of myself really as a visual storyteller, illustrating trees, plants and wildlife by drawing as much as possible from the natural world that surround me,” she said.

“I use water based inks and mixed media to create what I hope is a lyrical almost nostalgic image.”
