Hi, welcome, I hope you’re well and you enjoy this post.
I’m not sure what I did before Pinterest.. I love it, you can find so many artists and their work on there.
Right, let’s meet Hedley before I get carried away and show you every single piece of artwork he’s ever done, I’ll share his facebook and website link below so that you can go and explore.
Hi Hedley, tell us a little about you and what you do please.
My name is Hedley Wiggan. I live in Manchester in the UK aged 49. I love to paint things from my imagination, I also create sculptures from graphite pencils.
What was your earliest creative memory?
My earliest memory, I entered a drawing competition at the age of 8 the prize was a box of chocolates, i entered purely to win the hand of a fair maiden, I was disqualified as the teacher believed I traced my entry, I suppose in its own way it was a compliment.
Must be easier to see that as a compliment now but not so much when you were 8! I hope the fair maiden wasn’t put off!
Do you ever suffer from creative block and if so how do you deal with it?
I do sometimes have a creative block I tend to just go with it, I find going for a walk with nature as I love all wildlife and anything creepy crawly.
Who inspires you?
My inspirations: I love Dali, Monet and I love Renaissance also.
Do you have a favourite piece that you’ve created?
It’s hard to choose a favourite but when I get a new idea I’m always excited.
What are your creative ambitions?
My creative ambitions for the future would be to inspire others.
How do you silence your inner critic?
I never silence the inner critic I feel it’s a motivational thing.
What do you when you’re not being creative?
When I’m not creating I love visiting friends and family, I also love watching insects in there own environment fascinates me.
If you were stranded on a desert island what three items would you want with you?
My craft art items would be a paint brush, knife and a big tube of paint.
Where can we find your artwork?
I do have a website for people just to see what sort of things I do its:
Please take some time to check out Hedley’s website and pages, there is a lot to see!
