I've recently been commissioned to create a watercolour artwork piece featuring my favourite subject matter - vintage teacups. It's always a little bit terrifying creating artwork for someone else, especially when the finished illustration is to be framed as an original artwork so I don't have the option of scanning into Photoshop and tweaking any bits, I can't make any mistakes! However, I'm really pleased with how the illustration is progressing, and without giving too much away here is a little preview of the artwork in progress.
I am a Textile Designer, Ceramic Designer and Illustrator.
I am English but live in the cute country township of Kyneton, Australia. I love making things. I love collecting things. This is my Bowerbird collection.
What is a Bowerbird?
Bowerbirds have a special characteristic close to my heart…… they are fond of collecting an assortment of found objects to be used purely for decorative purposes. Bowerbirds create beautiful structures, patterns and elaborate displays with their finds and can spend hours arranging their collection of precious knick-knacks.
