What’s to come..

Future posts here we go! I am usually not this organised when it comes to blog posts but I’ll try for a month and see how it goes. I have a huge stack of artists that I want to ‘collect’ and share with you on my blog, hopefully to inspire and give you something interesting to look at that you haven’t seen before. Below are some snippet images to give you an idea about the artists I will post about next so stay tuned.

If this is the first time you have come across my little blog I like to talk about all sorts of artists and not just sticking to one discipline or style.

Inspiring Artists

When needing inspiration I often look at one of my favourite art mediums and go from there. Watercolour painting is a versatile and flexible medium that allows artists to create their own colour opacity. It’s a fantastic practice in that it’s unpredictable and can be experimented with in so many ways, from technique to the materials used, to how much water is left on the brush. I always feel overwhelmed painting in watercolours because there are endless possibilities in what you can achieve with them.

Margo Selby

margo selby landscapeI have been meaning to blog about this designer for quite some time ever since I saw some of her bedlinen. Margo Selby is a textile designer who creates complex geometric patterns and woves them into furnishings and clothing. She trained at Chelsea College of Art London and since her first collection in 2003 she has done various project work with huge names such as Farrow & Ball, The British Museum and John Lewis.

Selby’s patterns and the colour threads she chooses to bring together remind me of 1970s interiors. Her designs are sharp with clashes of colour producing a contemporary cutting edge look to her collections. See her website for a closer look. I really like her cushions in particular, they are bright and bring colour to any room. Problem is though once you buy one thing you want the whole set as most of her prints span across all furnishings!margo selby portraitmargo selby cushionsmargo selby cushions 2
