Brick Lane Doll – Original Finished

Posted on

After a late night of painting every brick red, I have finally finished my Brick Lane Doll (fifth in my London Fashion Doll Collection).

 

 

Brick Lane – Fashion Doll

Posted on

Today I started work on my 5th London Fashion Doll, I was so excited at the prospect of an Avante-Garde doll to suit my favourite area so I  just had to start here.

I still need to add some navy blue and finish hand painting the background bricks red (she is very onorous one for me as every inch requires so much detail), but I  do love letting my imagination wander as I spent hour upon hour doing so.

 

Exhibition Opening Night.

I went for a meeting at The Brady Art Centre today, the opening night for exhibiting my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection will be 13th August 2012 (18.00-21.00) I have a huge space available, but limited time so am aiming to create at least another 4 Fashion dolls : http://www.towerhamletsarts.org.uk/?s=3&v=15&guide=AllAges

London Fashion Dolls – Development and inspiration

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been making¬†visits to¬†Brick lane and researching imagery¬†to inspire the development of my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection.

Most of the¬†architecture used in the collection so far are modern builds (apart from ‘Big Ben’), so I’m thinking it would be an interesting contrast if the next drawings show¬†some classic buildings.

One thing which¬†inspires me about East London¬†so¬†much is the contrast of modern,¬†cutting edge architecture next to charming older buildings and¬†the fact it’s merely¬†a 10 minute walk from the diverse, Avante Garde Brick Lane to the Business District which is Bank, so the¬†styles¬†from both¬†areas change dramatically!

My Fashion dolls show a cutting edge mix of vintage mixed with contemporary, cutting edge attire to show the strong styles and changes within this area.

 

 

  

   

Exhibiting at the ‘Brady Arts and Community Centre’

Posted on

Several weeks ago I answered a call-out on the Tower Hamlets website asking for artists with an Olympic theme running through their work¬†to exhibit¬†at the ‘Brady Arts and Community Centre.’

¬†I’m delighted to say that on Thursday I¬†recieved an email saying that¬†my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection has been chosen to be¬†exhibited for 3 weeks at the beginning of August :D!

The centre is my¬†dream place¬†to exhibit this collection as being located in Brick Lane it fits the Avante Garde ‘East London Style’ theme perfectly and is¬†close to all the major East London Buildings which I have used.

I don’t have a great deal of time as I’ll be putting the work up¬†early August¬†but would really like to develop the collection further, (maybe with a few more Illustrations). I’m going for a meeting¬†with them¬†on Wednesday so will have a look at the space and decide what else to do.
