mission and vision
These snapshots and creations have been quite the journey, over the last few years. It has been exciting to be inspired at that level again. Have loved learning a new tool and where that has taken me. Look forward, everyday, to following this road further, to see where it takes me.
my surroundings inspire me, not only because it is so lovely, of course, but it constantly evokes happy memories from my childhood. ... I am inspired to bring a smile, they are happy fun creations. It's a little bit of nostalgia brought into now, its the happy colours for joyful memories and a snapshot that captures the essence as I see it.
I currently create my designs digitally on my iPad . I take photos as I walk around. Scenes that grab me, a row of colourful houses. An old gate, dogs in the park. Observations of the everyday, these are the basis for my creations. I use them like a colIage to create the piece in my mind. Love the flat colour, the graphic style that the ipad can give me.
Takes me back to my block/ screen printing, where shapes are simplified. I love the speed, of the digital world, how you can fill a page with colour in a click.. and then still, slow right down, to get the details.
