Vintage Doll paintings

Posted on

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:

Left handed Drawing re-visited

Posted on

I’ve created an abundance of  two minute continuous line drawings and  left handed drawings over the past few weeks. Today I had an urge to revisit and develop into finalised Artwork:

New paintings, development…

I’ve started two new paintings to add to my ‘Dream Abstraction’ Series (see below)

Here are the two new girls so far; I started with some Kandinsky inspired circles and flower paintings as a foundation layer which have been covered in white gesso and now the ladies are coming together…I just need to add some bright colours so they sit nicely with their sisters….

Fashion & Character Illustration classes

Posted on

Saturday is the last ‘Fashion & Character Illustration’ Class (8-11 year olds) at Rosetta Arts for this year – it has been an incredible ten weeks and the work created by the children so diverse.

I teach my students a process and see how they develop the concept into their own piece; this ten week project had to relate to a Fashion Drawing or a new character/super hero.

The images below were an experiment where the students painted a square piece of cotton with white gesso and then drew their characters onto the fabric using oil pastel and acrylic paints….since these photos have been taken I’ve taught them to sew and they’ve been using appliqué onto their Artworks.

We have now photographed all of their artworks from the ten week course and in the final lesson will heat transfer (using heat press) their best works onto tote bags – teaching them possible ideas for development and Surface decoration.
