I am really enjoying using early 80s Dolly magazines as a reference. Show how you feel is based on an advertisement for a monogrammed chain bracelet: a trend left over from the 70s. Working from certain photos does however challenge my painting skills -- and this one will have to be substantially reworked. I had another one too which I can't even show at this point. (Working in acrylic on wood is good however as you can layer the colours and get rid of unsightly bits.)
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
