Month: September 2012
I was drawing 2 minute self portraits of guests at an event in conjunct with London Drawing today which was great fun! I did a few timed portraits of myself to warm up.
Using my Space Doll again has made me feel all nostalgic! Here’s a little write up on that collection from New Designers back in 2009 -This collection really set my creative style :
Last day to apply and I decided to enter 2 pieces into the RWA Open Exhibition: my signature 7ft fabric Space Doll Banner and one of my ‘Surreal Fashion Doll’ paintings (exhibiting the original piece(s)
I still have a few ltd Edition Fashion Doll prints available to purchase on the ‘Premier Art’ website:
Last night I taught a workshop in collaboration with Esprit / RCA / London Drawing Fashion launch event.
Groups of Fashionista guests were being shown walked around the store to try their hand at 10 minute art workshops: I was tutoring on the vintage style paper doll table, inspiring people to come up with new print/colour ideas for the outfits on their doll.
An extremely fun, inspirational evening!
I bought these adorable salt and pepper shakers at a vintage shop in Nottinghill last week, they are a birthday gift for my friend but I’m sure I’ll be incorporating drawings of them into my work at some point.
I was shortlisted down for an interview in the prestigious ‘Debut Contemporary’ Art gallery based in Notting Hil and was delighted to find they want to exhibit my ‘Surreal Fashion Doll Collection’ I’m going to develop the drawings and create several more and in the New Year start to look for sponsorship from Fashion Houses (with the possibility of creating pieces to promote their collections).
I found the most enjoyable collection to work on as I just let my imagination run wild, a true artistic flow…………..
I had an interview last Thursday to be an Art Tutor at a Fashion event for LFW and have just recieved an email informing me that I’ve been chosen to teach there next week.
