When I paint people I ask - Who are they? What are their secrets? What do they shield? What are their thoughts? What makes them who they are?
So many questions fuelled by curiosity and intrigue. Did I mention, I love faces.
I love seeing a persons face light up when they see their face or a loved ones in paint. To me that’s pure joy. To see more faces I’ve lit up, venture here.
“With good friends…..and good food on the board….we may well ask, when shall we live if not now?” M.K.Fisher, The Art of Eating
I adore every aspect of food. I once was a keen food photographer but nowadays find illustrating it way more fun, plus, it’s better for the waistline.
That said, shopping at the farmers market, cooking with local produce and making wholesome food to share with family and friends will always be one of my favourite things to do. It’s in my blood.
Illustrated here is a selection of recipes that are regularly made in our house. Some my mother made for me as a child. They’re simple, quick to prepare and delicious too. You can find these recipes and more on my instagram page here.
“Ethical is the new black” ~ fashion the change
Yes, fashion is fabulous but it’s also ruining our world. I’m an ethical fashion supporter and love to follow brands who consciously create.
In my own world I tend to paint fashion pieces that hint elegance and carry a more with less feel, yet are still full of life. One day I’ll turn my illustrations into physical garments, even if just for myself. For now though, I’ll keep painting threads that only exist on paper.
