My latest collection of watercolour art prints are designed so that you can mix and match them to create a beautifully curated gallery wall.
Choose from a number of 'hero prints' and monochromatic coordinates which pair beautifully. They are available in a range of sizes to suit your wall size and decor.
The watercolour details were inspired by antique textiles. The originals were carefully scanned to create a museum quality art print.
Due to Covid impacts, I've now partnered with a number of printers so that my artwork can be shipped from 5 locations worldwide. This means you get your artwork quickly with a smaller carbon footprint. Print locations include Australia, US, UK, Canada and Europe.
I recently discovered the Room Portrait Club and have joined in with some of the challenges.
Room Portrait Club is a supportive, instagram community where artists complete a weekly portrait challenge using their chosen medium. A new image is posted each Saturday and artists from all over the world share their take on the room's portrait.
What I love seeing is the variety of media! There is painting, of course, and sketching, but also collage, printmaking, assemblage and embroidery. It's really inspiring. Some portraits are realistic, whilst others are graphic and some artists choose to reinterpret or just depict a section of the photo.
Here's my room portrait from a few weeks ago. A gorgeous little shepherd's hut interior, complete with William Morris wallpaper!
I've been working on improving my perspective sketching and this image certainly challenged me.
âThe image for the following week didn't inspire me as much, but I loved seeing the work of the other artists.
I LOVE this week's image, because of the colours. I didn't manage to squeeze it in before the deadline, but you can see my version below.
Be sure to check out #roomportraitclub on instagram.
If you are interested in joining in but don't know where to start, check out my online class where we paint a living room portrait with gouache and watercolour for our project.
"Scheherazade" is my new jewel-toned, geometric art print available in sizes from 8x10" up to 28x40"!
This beautifully feminine artwork is dramatic and evocative of another era. It is the perfect artwork to elevate any room. Position it above the master bed, in your boudoir, or give it pride of place in a bold living room.
I hand paint all my patterns with watercolour, building up layers and lush details. I then scan the finished artwork to create repeating patterns and a range of giclee art prints.
This design is also available to license on fabric, apparel and in other markets. Email me if you are interested.
Printmaking is such a diverse discipline and a 'print' can mean lots of different things. Often you hear 'print' meaning giclee prints or digital reproductions of an original painting or illustration.
Most of my works are dry point prints. Each one is made by hand, painted by hand and then signed and numbered - as they are limited edition.
First, I start out by sketching my design until I'm happy with it. I then transfer my design onto illustration board, which will become my 'plate'. I cut out my plate, seal it with up to 6 coats of sealer, and then I etch all of the lines of my design into the plate with a sharp tool.
My next step is to 'ink up' my plate ready for printing. The ink goes on and then the excess ink gets gently wiped off, leaving ink in the etched lines. This is the most time-consuming part of the process.
When I'm happy with the plate, it goes onto the etching press. My paper goes on top and I hold my breath and wind it through the press.
The prints are left to dry. To make the next print, I ink up and wipe off my plate again.
Plates made in this way can only go through the press limited times and so each of my designs will be limited to /15 or /25 prints in an edition.
When you see a number on the bottom of an artwork like: 2/25, that means it was the second print pulled in an edition of 25. U/S stands for Unique State and means that the print is unique, either due to ink colour, layout or the watercolours used.
Once the print is dry, I paint it with artist quality watercolour paints. The colours that are mixed can never be recreated exactly, so each one has its own unique quality.
I am excited to share my new collection of four pretty, pink prints!
I have loved painting this collection. I started off painting the woven pattern and then moved on to the scallops. It was really freeing to have a repetitive structure and then be able to try new things in each shape or line.
I've been inspired by lace, beading and antique chintz, theatrical costumes and colours of Venetian glass.
