I've added lots of new pieces to my portfolio. You'll find the enchanted forest of William Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. An imagined book cover for an Encyclopedia about mythological creatures of the oceans, lakes and rivers. Recollections and reflections from a pool as well as the recipe for Great Aunt Mary's Chutney.
All my art comes from a sense of wonder. This is another experiment, hand lettering with soft shading, in a kind of ribbon style, and made on my iPad.
I sat down with a pair of scissors and lots of brown paper and started cutting out geometric shapes. Playing with the pieces. Laying the shapes out in different ways, experimenting with torn and cut paper, variations in scale, a patchwork feeling, a sense of depth, a flat feeling, and asymmetrical geometrics.
It was a really interesting experiment and something that I think I'll be weaving into my creative process.
This resulted in a collection of 8 hand crafted, paper-cut, seamless patterns. You can find them here: Paper Cut Geometric Seamless Patterns.
A new set of greeting cards for a card box set with coordinating patterns for the box/packaging. Inspired by lace, and an Edwardian mood with a contemporary twist.
Here's a new illustration and three patterns combining florals and geometrics.
I put together a few images to define my style. It's really difficult to put words on your own work and style! Gathering these illustrations and patterns helps get a feel for it. What words come to your mind when you see this?
