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:

Vintage Dolls – development

Posted on

It’s been a week packed with research and drawings, with a trip to the Museum of Childhood on Tuesday, Pollocks Toy Museum on Wednesday, The Corner shop on Thursday and a trip to the Geoffrye Museum on Saturday.

The Vintage Dolls are developing FAST….a trip to the Geoffrey museum to look at wallpapers and decor filled me with inspiration, sketching the wallpaper patterns from the late 1700 ‘s and early 18oo’s started making me think about how the pattern could be re-used in a contemporary context.

I found my ideas changed and developed rapidly as I worked; my love for print and Surface Pattern were evoked……and new processes discovered:
