Buxton Fringe Festival artwork chosen

IMG_4637The winner of a competition to design the programme cover for the 2013 Buxton Fringe is artist Lynn Hawkins.

In the picture above Fringe chair Stephanie Billen (right) is congratulating Lynn on her winning artwork which  is a colourful collage incorporating many aspects of the Fringe.

Lynn, who originally attended art college and has been living in Buxton since 2009, said: ‘When I moved up here I was exposed to the Fringe and all its delights.

“My main inspiration for the picture was theatre in the park; you’ve got your curtain and a backdrop and a scene for a show, whether music or drama.”
