    Edouard Marty to name but a few Their playful flirty and romantic story telling is her inspiration She also challenges simple art techniques and is happy to explore other mediums Her investigations and understanding of the products she works with is extremely thorough Currently she s playing with the idea that a piece of work can at first look like a successful abstract and then slowly it becomes clear that it is a fashion painting After studying Fashion and Textiles at Brettton Hall there was a spell of teaching fashion and fashion illustration in Milan and then working in the fashion industry for several years as an embroiderer and fashion designer Now back in England she s gone back to her first love painting figures and illustrating fashion Bridget is a successful freelance artist working from her studio in West Sussex She is a published artist with greetings cards and framed prints of her work being sold both through online outlets and through stores and shops such as John Lewis and The Shard where examples of my work can currently be seen In addition her Heavy Metal paintings have also been used by the well known store Anthropologie on a range of desert plates and serving platters both in Europe and the United States The Leopard trimmed hat An Acrylic Ink finished with craquelure and gloss varnish part of the How Ladylike mixed media original artwork range of paintings Lady with a feathered hat An Acrylic Ink aged with craquelure and finished with a gloss varnish Waiting again An Acrylic Ink aged with craquelure and finished with a gloss varnish part of the How Ladylike range of paintings Nude Nude in music book finished with craquelure Big Night Sketch Book A concertina book of sketches and ideas for the Big

  • blog - foiled boots
    to give a bit of a shine to our boots It s so easy to simply give a fresh new look to some old favourites Above is the same shoe The foils that I have used are the same lime dark brown and gold but the one fabric is very different from the next allowing for two totally different looks Just cut out pieces from different fabrics try them on the shoe and see what you like I would have loved a bit of textured textile but just didn t find one that I liked in the loved textile leftovers box and this is how we did it I picked up this shoe for a song knew that I liked the workable shapes but not necessarily the colour Most importantly I could see it had potential In order to achieved the foiled look working on a piece of card with an old plastic bag taped over it I cut out a rectangle of black fabric Swirl appliglue around it Using a damp sponge applicator I spread Appliglue over the surface When tacky almost dry place the foil shiny side up on the fabric When it s dry place baking paper or grease proof paper over the top of it and iron it on a low setting When it s cool peel off the film on the top of the foil It will come off easily Cut it to the shape or size required If it s an add shape it s a good idea to make a pattern with an piece of paper Pin it on to see if you like it Reposition it if necessary This is when you can try different fabrics and foils with each other Then simply glue it on with Appliglue buy textile foils previous

    visitors see how we did it below I knew that I wanted a wire frame created but wasn t quite sure how I would achieve it In Kalk Bay a little harbour town of Cape Town I approached one of the street wire vendors in Vennie s team We discussed the size and a couple of details I returned a couple of hours later when I was shown the bones of the design I agreed it Paid half of the quote of R200 s just over 10 and the following day collected it It is about 100cms x 45cm in size Much as I loved the wire frame the aim was to create a Chrstmas deer for the door and I wanted to see if I could cover it with fabrics using Appliglue To do that I needed a textile base so draped it with leftover fabric which was cut pinned and then the seamed fairly randomly with big stitches Textiles here are pinned in place Once the pieces were glued in place some of them were edged with colour Others received more detailed decorative stitches In the centre on a scrap of fabric are some of these designs I was experimenting with Here are some of the designs I was experimenting with Did you know that in the old days one of the reasons for the development of crazy patchwork was that fabrics used were often thick and difficult to stitch with running stitches so women developed creative ways to deal with this problem Kalk Bay is a quirky arty fishing village along the coast on the drive to Boulder s Beach and Simonstown It is here between the popular Olympia bakery and coffee shop and a relaxed fish food cafe right on the street where one can find
