Cup cakes!

Continuing my food theme of late, I've just finished my 'Cupcakes' piece. I made all the cakes from fabric collages and then machine stitched them. All six cakes are mounted on canvas as a ready to hang piece. I've just listed it in my Etsy shop today. Take a look.

Food, glorious food......

One of the main themes in my work is food. I have always loved to cook and eat good food and I think this has naturally become an interest in my artwork.
I am particularly attracted to the arrangement of things - bowls, cups, teapots, cooking implements- still life really, and I like to play about with this idea in my collage illustrations.
I also love the decorative potential in food - colours and patterns etc and I make most use of this in some of my paper mache pieces. My paper mache cake boxes play this idea to the full. I have both of these for sale in my etsy shop.
At the moment I'm working on some images of 'cup cakes' using collaged fabrics. Again very decorative and patterned. I hope to post them soon.
