Both Artworks are inspired from my new piece ‘The Tree Of Life & Growth’, I made them especially for the exhibition, as were approaching Christmas I wanted to create some affordable, accessible little originals.

Visited The British Museum this afternoon to see Witches & Wicked Bodies

On my way popped into Paperchase and saw their new stationary series appeared to be following a similar Mythology aesthetic…..Subsequently so did the competition I entered into That Which We Do Not Understand competition set by Amelia’s Magazine…..I feel a trend on the horizon!

The brief for this competition has really taken me out of my comfort zone and brought my attention to new things…..I know what will inspire my next series!

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:

 

Initial left handed Matrioshka Doll drawing which has been brought to life using Oil pastels &  acrylics

Veronica Rowlands Acrylic oil pastel and ink on paper

 

New work – transition.

Posted on Updated on

These images show my new 60 x 30 inch piece which I’m currently working on, showing the development and changes which my work undergoes from start to finish……..evolving.

This particular piece takes inspiration from a series of surreal dreams which I wanted to share.

Mixed Media; acrylic, gesso, pastel, ink and beading on canvas.
