The partnership between the artist and the Yorkshire Shepherdess was forged nearly four years ago when Harrogate-based Anita Bowerman contacted Amanda Owen with an idea for a charity collaboration.
Anita wanted an iconic Yorkshire figure to feature on her charity Christmas card design in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Amanda, who has since become an ambassador for YAA, didn’t hesitate and, together with her husband and nine children, feature annually on Anita’s best-selling cards.
The pair have since gone on to speak together at RHS Garden Harlow Carr Flower Show, as they both champion a love of nature and work together at a variety of charity events around the county.
Anita and Amanda have worked together to release an English fine bone china mug featuring The Hay Meadows at Amanda’s Ravenseat Farm and a Limited Edition Print, illustrated by Anita. Such was its popularity, a second mug and print- Spring at the Farm is due for release this Autumn. Anita and Amanda visited the Duchess China factory in Stoke-on-Trent to see their mug in production and support this British company.
"The sculpture is a beautiful piece and seemed totally fitting as a gift from us to our world governing body. It is certainly something I would like hanging on my wall. I would like to thank Anita for her amazing work."
— Frank Slevin - Chair, British Cycling
“Anita has worked with Yorkshire Air Ambulance for three years and has created such beautiful artworks for notelets, special commemorations and Christmas cards. Anita's work is so unique in style and with a focus on the countryside and heritage of Yorkshire which our supporters adore."
— Abby Barmby - Director of Marketing and Communications, Yorkshire Air Ambulance
"We commissioned Anita to create a school Christmas card because we were so impressed with her paper cut of the Tour de France route. We wanted to create a card which would be striking and distinctive as well as celebrating the creativity of one of our former pupils."
— Helen Clapham – Head of Communications, The Grammar School at Leeds
