I have been collaborating with talented fashion and graphic designer Ani Passarelli to create a new lifestyle brand (I’ll be telling you more tomorrow) but have a sneak peek at our vintage inspired colour-in dolls and how we’ve been adorning ours.
They make a wonderful stocking filler for children or an artwork for adults.
I will be facilitating a free workshop in which yow will get to create your own vintage inspired Artwork, followed by a solo P.V. of my work
All levels welcome, it is a fun, therapeutic, experimental activity in which you will be left with your own Doll/character artwork, which you will be able to take home….
The workshop will be held between 5-6pm on Thursday 10th November at Rosetta Art Centre and will be followed by a private view of my work between 6-8pm.
Please see Facebook for further details.
Documenting the first three dimensional thing I’ve ever made (I’m not joking) with a photograph or before it falls apart in the kiln….(once painted and with arms is to be a vintage doll in a bustle)…
I wanted to challenge myself to create a series of abstract paintings…as an Artist with and illustrative style I thought it would be exciting to challenge myself….
I’m delighted with how the first one has come out, obviously I worked from one of my former doll pictures, but this one tells a whole new story…

Exciting news…..I’ve set a date for my solo exhibition at Free Space Gallery as 6th February 2015.
The day will start with a Vintage inspired Tea Party between 3.30 – 5pm followed by the evening Private view at 6.30-9pm and the exhibition will continue until 3/4/2015.
On Saturday I worked with London drawing helping to dress and make-up a model as a Victorian doll for a drawing event at Watford Museum; it was a fabulous evening and the museum was buzzing with creativity! (My space Doll was up in the corner to set the mood).
Several weeks ago I answered a call-out on the Tower Hamlets website asking for artists with an Olympic theme running through their work to exhibit at the ‘Brady Arts and Community Centre.’
I’m delighted to say that on Thursday I recieved an email saying that my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection has been chosen to be exhibited for 3 weeks at the beginning of August :D!
The centre is my dream place to exhibit this collection as being located in Brick Lane it fits the Avante Garde ‘East London Style’ theme perfectly and is close to all the major East London Buildings which I have used.
I don’t have a great deal of time as I’ll be putting the work up early August but would really like to develop the collection further, (maybe with a few more Illustrations). I’m going for a meeting with them on Wednesday so will have a look at the space and decide what else to do.
Collection so far :
I’m just getting some stock together to sell at ‘The Whitecross Street Party’ – I’ll be there from midday ‘Face-Tagging’ for Premier Art…………….See you there (more pictures to come).
