I’m brand new here! A friend just told me about RedBubble so I thought I’d give it a try. So far so good, but only time will tell what sort of response my artwork will get.
I plan to use this space to keep you up to date on what i’m currently working on and things i’ve just finished.
Recently i’ve been playing with textile art and have just finished a small (20 × 25cm) piece that’s part collage – lots of strips of fabric all fused to a backing fabric and a huge amount of freemotion stitching over the top. I’ve been able to uses lots of metallic threads including gold and variagateds (they are still metallic but change colour every couple of inches), fluro’s and holographic foil threads. The design is a landscape – water, island and sunset with a lone tree made of calico, fused and then intensively stitched.
I’ve also just tried some original paintings on ebay for the first time, but we’ll see how they go. From what I’ve seen so far and from looking at others completed listings artwork doesn’t get as many views let alone bidders as other things.
Wish you could sell the originals through this site!
Lastly i’ve just got my website up and running. It’s basic at the moment and needs to be refined to make it open quicker, I need to resize all the bits and pieces and add in newer artwork, prices etc.
If you’re interested go have a look and check back to see the updates later! The URL is:
Hope you all enjoy reading my journal and viewing my artwork!
