I took a wonderful online course in collage recently run by Mati Rose. It was over five weeks and each week was themed. These are my pieces from the week called "Creatures". I absolutely love working with paint and collage and would happily do it all day long.

These arrived in the post recently - samples from TeNeues of cards with my artwork that they produced as part of this summer's range. There are sixteen pink typewriter cards and envelopes in the box and the little gift cards have eight of each design. The dogs are trying to reassure an insecure cat and the bears are just standing around with balloons. The doggies are the same dogs on my banner above - they have been wandering along there for a couple of years so I'm delighted that they have a home to go to! TeNeues produce cards that have often caught my eye in the past so I'm thrilled to have my work chosen by them.
I loved doing the artwork for this project. I was even able to incorporated a couple of photos taken - one in 1986 when InterRailing around Europe and one in the summer of 2001 on a trip to the Italian Riviera. Makes lugging my heavy photo albums around from home to home feel justified! It was for an Italian textile company and I believe it is for swimwear.
