Bundles of Bunting





I have been getting to know my sewing machine quite well recently. A small group of us are holding a stall on the Petite Noel market (info to come soon). So I have been busy making lots of things to sell, so far I have sewn over 100 pieces of bunting, and have plenty more crafts in the pipeline including wool/cashmere/tweed handbags, coin purses and badges.

The bunting is hand sewn with quality vintage materials either floral pattern or tweed, hung on pretty satin ribbon, they brighten up any room to make every day look like a celebration.

Updated banner


As I have changed course from Illustration to Fine Art I figured I ought to update my blog banner using a drawing from last year.

Trying Tiles





As mentioned in a previous post I have tried to run before I can walk in terms of my current painting. I rushed into it getting carried away with the characters in the piece instead of first tackling the background. So conversely this week I have been trying to work on the setting of the characters which is heavily laden with intricate tiles.

I have tried to make a stencil for this process, first out of card and then later with acetate. I hope to develop this onto canvas during this week.
