The Poppy Bag was selected for a display of on-trend items set inside larger than life size 3D books, each representing a key theme, in a prominent location of Spring Fair – the Hall 5 Gift Box area. This display presented key on-trend exhibitor products for 2014, which the speakers Ellie Kidson and Eve Reid of Metamorphosis discussed in their talks.

About artbyjaxx

Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands. Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory. Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
