Oscar and the Roses "Z" (Illuminated Alphabet) by 

New Borderless version – uploaded May 2013

I am a self taught artist from Australia. I write, paint, draw and sew! I have never been to Art School. I am on Google+ Twitter

My celtic letters are all my own creations and some originals are for sale. So if you see something that I still have the original textiles or fine art for sale, drop me a bubblemail!

  • Thanks DApixara! I have finished painting him yesterday. He dried (painted acetate )really well in the heat. I only have the Letter “Q” to print and paint and then I have the complete alphabet done.

    Z for my real name and I was born in the Chinese year of the Dragon… this is so perfect for me :o)
    Lovely painting Donna, I love the old illuminated lettering… back in the days when they really went to the effort with books to make them as beautiful as they should be!
    Zoe :o)

  • Thanks Akkra! I hope to get some more of Oscar done and really looking forward to the idea I want to do with the numbers too. I love the book of Kells with the Illuminated manuscript and that was one of the inspirations that are behind Oscar and the Roses.
