I've put together a short stop motion video of me painting my piece 'My Week With Marilyn'. I took one picture around every 5 minutes to create the video. The painting is Acrylic paint on canvas and is 60 x 40 cm, this piece has sold but if there is any interest in a print please contact me.
With the help of somewhereto_ I had a stall at this years 'Our Leicester's Day' on the 25th August within the Leicester Market. I was able to showcase some of my paintings and my stitchwork.
There was also the Leicester SkyRide going straight past the Market and lots of other events going on throughout the city. So there was lots of excitement and buzz going on around the center.
I had a really lovely day and had some great comments from people looking at my work, I am looking to do a lot more events like this so check my events page to see what I have coming up. Thank you to everyone who popped by to see me you support is so appreciated!
I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in the competition with Somewhereto_ John Lewis Oxford Street. My painting 'My Week with Marilyn' which is Acrylic on Canvas was shown in the Brasserie of John Lewis for 10 days between the 22nd - 31st of July.
I'm so pleased to say that someone contacted me through my website who wanted to buy the painting.
So here is 'Marilyn' all wrapped up and ready to go! It's always so strange when I sell a painting and knowing that this is probably the last time I ever see it in person (photos never properly do the paintings justice), but hoping that she enjoys her new home!
My final major project on the run up to my Degree Show was based around the idea 'if walls could talk' I was inspired by the idea that as people we imprint an identity of ourselves on our home.
For example if you move into an old home you can sometimes find layers of old wallpaper underneath the walls revealing an imprint of previous owners.
I painted and hand carved wallpaper designs into 5 large plasterboards, I then pasted layers of wallpaper on top.
I peeled off some of the paper and cut through some of the individual pattern revealing a little of what was underneath, a glimpse of the past.
