Some of my illustrative work ....done in gouache, colouring pencil and pencil .... Pencil drawing and gouache painting of Butch my brother's Jack Russell who loved a good sing song ......if you asked him to sing he would throw his head back and howl forever .....such a little character ..... This is a colouring pencil illustration of a poem I love ....... These are some experiments with plastics and stitch ......... Went up into the depths of the attic yesterday and came across some art I made for my A level exam ....only in 2000 though I was late doing it but they are experiments with plastic .......quite interesting so thought I would post them here also thought you may like to see some of my illustrations gouache and pencil ....I trained as a pictorial illustrator back in the day at Swansea College of Art then specialised in botanical for my final ...many happy days spent in Singleton botanical gardens drawing and painting.....one of these days I may illustrate a book maybe now's the time ...who knows ......hope you enjoy seeing these they don't get aired enough...x
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
