Illustration Series...



I have finally finished my illustration series... The concept was, in short, instilling a sense of beauty in the ordinary actions that are part of a single day routine. I hope you like them...






Art of Nurture Website...


The piece from the Lloyds Tsb Art of Nurture Competition last year is now on the website... I was a Regional Winner and National Finalist.
If you're a student at the moment I'd really recommend entering, it's a great opportunity to see your work in an exhibition environment. The event was held at the Saatchi Gallery last year and was an amazing exhibiton. It's lovely to have my piece now on the website...

Canon ae1 Pictures...


Well... My Canon ae1 works... yey!
I took a few pictures; I'm still getting the hang of taking photographs... and not so used to taking photos of myself.... eeek! For one of my final year projects I'm creating an illustration series from looking 'a day in the life' and seeing the beautiful in the mundane... drying your hair, making a tea, taking a shower, putting your socks on.

I'm using close up intimate images, and taking photographs as the basis... so here it begins... If you'd like to see a few more of these photos take a look at my Flickr
