Posted on

I was extremely touched having been sent a photo of my friends Wedding gift up on their wall! In their words ‘Veronica’s Art Wall’….a wall with not only the wedding portrait up but my handmade greeting cards in frames:

Here’s a clearer image of the painting which I created for my lovely friends’ wedding:

I’m taking commissions for portraits and gifts, why not one to me to create a unique Artwork for that special event: e.g: christening, wedding, anniversary, birthday, wedding, engagement etc.

Just let me know what you’re after and I’ll create something magical and unique, perfect for that special recipient.

I went to the wedding party of two dear friends last night, I was there on the night they met……nine years ago! so I wanted to give them something special:

Vintage Doll paintings

So my latest series ‘Vintage Dolls’ are coming along beautifully…..i’m having a great time re-interpreting the Vintage Wallpaper patterns from the Geoffrye Museum using a new colour palette and masking tape as a resist (takes me back to my university days as a textile student) it’s hugely exciting to be able to combine my Surface Pattern knowledge with my fine Art paintings….

I’ve been using collage onto certain pieces and they’re becoming rather surreal……documented the development below:

Afternoon at the Saatchi Gallery

Posted on

Had  great afternoon at the Saatchi Gallery on Thursday, completely blown away by this installation piece by Rafael Gomezbarros…..it’s conjured up images in my head of a multitude of dolls covering the walls of a gallery……something to think about……..
