Creative Collage Workshops

Posted on Updated on

I had a wonderful time at the creative collage workshop this afternoon at The James Wigg Practice (Kentish Town).
Experimenting with collage, materials and composition reminded me so much of my first term of university and made me think about how much I miss just having the time to experiment and create with no set brief…

I’ve made a promise to myself to attend as many Art workshops/courses as possible…I feel them to be one of the best sources of inspiration for projects and the more creative processes one can use the more boundaries can be broken through/combined when creating…

I’m tempted to scan this one in and make a repeat pattern on Photoshop with the vase.
I can’t recommend the workshops enough, they’re completely free to do and re-start on Friday 11th March (2-5pm).

A ceramic ‘Toybox’ for adults

Posted on

I’d like to consolidate all of my design ideas (from my present sketchbook) into one large piece to create an eclectic, kitsch ceramic box (like a toy box but to serve as a trinket holder for adults).
The illustrations on the outside will serve as a visual diary which capture everything which inspires me from vintage dolls and florals to kitsch, childlike puppy illustrations.
This keepsake box will be used to hold treasured items of sentimental value, reminiscent of childhood memories and nostalgia….

A photograph from a lovely collector of my work (based in Australia) two of my little prints…. ‘Four Calling Birds’ and ‘Baby Bird’ framed and in the baby nursery…now just waiting for the dear little arrival to make an appearance.
Means so much when people choose my work to go in such special places…

Birdie comforts

Posted on Updated on

So my new blue birdie cushion seem to be immensely popular (wish I’d had more made in this order) thinking of getting a few A4 prints in blue and cream made up…..they make me feel cosey and at home, even when It’s bitterly cold outside….
