Art Print Release: Old Pumpkin Grove

Post Content

Hi everyone, I am really excited to share one of my latest digital paintings with you. I haven’t been doing as much digital painting. I started off this piece not really expecting much from it. I took it very slowly doing a wide range of projects in between. I would come back to it randomly with out focus. Adding and adjusting in a very lazy way to be honest. But it has surpassed what I intended or envisioned. I LOVE it a lot!!!

Sometimes I start with a narrative other times I kinda make it up as I go. I had never created a piece with a pumpkin. So it was exciting to see what I could do it’s mood comes from the place of it being under the hedge than any dark connotations. I think what sparked the initial pumpkin idea was the growing of the pumpkin seed I am doing with my kids in the vegetable garden.

I always like to add my triangle of interest. My bird cohabiting is a familiar addition of nature’s symbiosis and accommodation of its varying species. The mouse I would say represents a variety of characters, sometimes me the artist, a way of intertwining myself in the story.

This new piece entitled ‘Old Pumpkin Grove’ is available for purchase in my shop.

New Artwork

Hi everyone, I hope you are staying safe during this time. I just got back from my family daily walk. It is sunny and the fresh breeze did a lot of good for me. I also added three new originals today to my shop. A stag piece and two florals. I plan to update the website shop continuously with new pieces because the brick and mortar business I run with four other artists is currently shut. It has taking me a while to get back into creating. I am slowly getting my energy levels up. I will keep you updated, until then stay safe and speak to you soon. 🤓

Clay Sculptures

So I have wanted to create sculptures of my characters for a while and have finally figured out a way to do it. In the image you will see two cute individuals I have managed to carve out carefully. I still need to tweak them slightly but I am immensely happy with them. I have so many ideas, but in order to reign it back slight I think I will create pieces in series or following my guide in library of already created characters. They will be one of apiece kinds. I am excited to make more. I will also do some for commissions possibly, will see how I feel about that. Other news coming on a new venture. So will keep you posted. Spk soon. 😊

A Year of Abstraction

Hi folks, I finally got round to posting my first post here on my website for 2019. It only took me til March to do it!!👀

I have been absolutely loving creating abstract paintings over the last number of months.

I wanted to zoom into the worlds in the background of my brave and courageous characters.

So this year my focus is to create abstract landscapes.

While at uni I focused on abstraction and mark making. So it has been awesome to dive back in.

Mixed Media Collage Sketch 01

Hi! Everyone, the blog for today shows my latest approach to my work. I have been using Mixed Media collage techniques to bring about a loosening in my creative art process. I get hung up on the colours I should use. This approach allows me to work small scale which allows for creating multiple pieces very quickly and I am also able to assess my process more intimately, from above. You can see the process on my YouTube channel, link here,https://youtu.be/Wo_eHUpmMRM

 

I used the following tools:
Watercolour paper
Watercolour
Pencil hb
Tissue paper
Glue stick
Ink pen
Craft papers
Gesso
Scrap papers
