I have begun creating my next collection, (which has been a long time coming; mainly due to the birth of my beautiful daughter!), the original inspiration came from a trip to Rome a few years ago now. I want my new collection to embrace colour, (I`m experimenting with a much bolder palette than I ever have before!). It`s going to made from laser cut faux leather, ribbon, feathers and brass….
I spent a lovely Saturday facilitating a family picnic day at the Whitworth Art Gallery….yes an indoor picnic complete with blankets and baskets! Families bring their own picnic and create Art as a family- such a lovely idea! The workshop I delivered was inspired by the Beyond Borders exhibition.
My daughter Ruby loved the picnic idea, preferring to do an umbrella dance rather than than the workshop!
I feel so inspired by this beautiful collection of doll`s houses I saw at Newby Hall yesterday….
A miniature tribute to the statue gallery at Newby Hall!
And the beautiful flowers added to my inspiration!
I can`t get enough of layering! These three-dimensional pictures are all about layering! Made from laser cut mount board, japanese paper, brass and cork (to create the height) layered to play with depth and pattern.
