Don’t forget to RSVP for the fabulous Debut Contemporary Private View.
I’m also delighted to tell you that I’ve finished my first large scale piece from my ‘Once, in a Dream Series’ (after several weeks of beading and making constant changes), I’m very happy with her! She’ll be up to view in Debut from Wednesday.
‘Once, In a Dream’ 2013 (60x30inches)
Mixed Media: acrylic, oil pastel, gesso and embroidery on canvas.
Excited to see my Milena Kovanovic jewellery illustration featured in Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration.
I started the Illustration by hand in fountain pen, and added colour in Photoshop.
I have used neutral colours to give the Illustrations a sophisticated dge to match the beautiful Milenak Jewellery range and its clientele.
Gorgeous Illustrations from Laura Hickman aswell:
Not long until the next Fabulous Private View at Debut Contemporary, see me and my work there, just remember to RSVP:
‘Debut Contemporary invites art lovers to celebrate it’s Stylish September Private View. In conjunction with Bayswater villages First Wednesdays theme ‘Back to school’, we’re expecting a buzzing attendance on the 4th of September 2013, 7-9pm at it’s renowned gallery space at 82 Westbourne Grove, London. The exhibition features the latest hand-picked talent from both the UK and internationally. Debut Contemporary is the only professional development and career empowerment platform of its kind in the UK and f…ollows on from the success the founders, husband and wife duo, Samir Ceric and Zoe Knight achieved through the launch of Salon Contemporary and Wolf & Badger which earned them the industry titles such as ‘One of the UK’s Most Powerful Couples in Art & Fashion’ (The Times Magazines), ‘Kingmakers of Creative Talent’ (International Life Magazine), ‘London’s Top Tastemakers’ (Time Out London), to name a few. Known for bold, engaging pieces including performance, installations and audience participation, you can expect nothing less on the 4th of September. Keeping in theme with Bayswater Villages ‘Back to school’ we will have Debut artists exhibiting their old school chess skills as well as their artwork, so while sipping on a G&T you can enjoy watching an exciting game of chess which will be held in the display window!
Follow us from the gallery to After-Party hang-out spot just down the road…’
Last night I created a Fashion Illustration for Amelia’s Magazine for Russian Fashion Designer Pitchouguina’s latest collection:

I’ve just come back from the KPMG building in Canary Wharf (which is normally closed to the public) where I am exhibiting 2 prints from my ‘London Fashion Doll’ series alongside a selection of other Artists from NVAN (Newham Visual Artists Network).
A great evening full of a diverse range of Artists all working in different mediums, the work really brought the KPMG building to life.
I have made a Facebook group to work alongside the event group: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/514135755333332/ please join the group and share stories/write on the wall.
