I've done large scale murals and paper props for window displays before but both together (and the drawing reversed!) was new to me...! Great fun though. The window was a new challenge and I'm really happy with how it came out.
I was inspired by the idea of creating a 'burst of spring', something to overcome all the miserable weather we've been having! The owner requested that the window celebrated easter but also looked forward to the next stages of spring. I thought a focus on blossom could really help reflect this and wanted to use light bright colours and create something cheery and beautiful to look at. InsideOut is full of bursts of colour and original pieces so I wanted to reflect that in the window. It was great to have a chance to work in 3D again too, I'm very proud of my paper daffodils and chickens!
Visit Gottohaveit for InsideOut's online store and to view their other stores around the southwest!
Some recent pieces created for an interview at the Really Good studio for a Junior Design position. I love working at home but I do miss the buzz of a busy studio atmosphere and want it back! Sadly I didn't get the job, but got excellent feedback. The company expressed a love of cake on their website, so my "edible portfolio" of cakes featuring digital prints of my work onto icing (with edible inks!) went down especially well!
A huge thankyou to Lisa of Sugar Sweet Cakes Tavistock for creating the beautiful edible portfolio for me, I couldn't have done it without you!
