Nicola Henshaw

A love for narrative forms is key to my work; stories and sayings, passed down through generations, always with a moral tale. It is the stereotypical animal characters that I enjoy the most: the cunning fox, who is often outwitted, the wise stork, or the stupid hen. I also seek inspiration from 18th-century tapestries and prints, a pre-camera era, where animals were quirkily represented.

With the freedom she allows Linda is a generous patron. This enables me to grow as a maker. She encourages me to take my work to a new level and has confidence that what I produce will be successful.
