Klimt inspired commission

Posted on

Edited, finished 120x150cm Klimt inspired commission.
I was asked to change the hair colour to make it look more like the new owner and so changed the background to black (which makes the characters jump off the canvas in contrast) very happy with the results….

It will be delivered to its new home in Notting Hill this weekend…

Original plan..

Klimt inspired ‘Love’ commission

Posted on Updated on

Here’s a peep at a Klimt inspired commission I’m currently working on (well this is a plan of the illustration and colour scheme) the actual artwork will be painted on a life-size canvas….excited!

I have so many ideas and avenues I want to explore with my Art this year including…more Klimt inspired nudes/love pieces, a ‘hybrid’ collection, ceramic dolls and trinket boxes and a series of mini paintings/sequences of characters in various settings for an auction in Notting Hill in March…

There just aren’t enough hours in the day at the moment…I want to do it all but keep on being inspired again and again by new things….can only be a good thing!

Alternative Card range

Posted on

Sorry to say the word so early…

I’m working on a new Christmas Card range….an alternative slance on the twelve days of Christmas.
Avoiding the cliche bright greens & reds and obvious icons associated with the period, I’ve opted for a colour scheme inspired from retro, kitsch cards….

Words with an appropriate font will follow soon….

“Four Calling Birds”

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 Tree Of Life & Growth’

What We Dont Understand sml Veronica Rowlands copy

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!
