Soooo, looks like I’ve gone a little quiet here again…but that’s good…actually life’s very good. Indeed I’m at my best when I am busy and busy I have been! Creating accessories based on concealment and the unexpected. This has taken me on a fabulous journey of slashing, burning, melting and shoe-making! Here’s some of my not-quite finished shoes….
Can you guess my inspiration?!
So, this brief started with four objects….
– A seed head
– A bloom
– A Peacock feather
– A frame
And two whole sketchbooks FULL of research, sketches…..
and initial design ideas.
I scanned my favorite motifs, textures and images, into the computer for further design development….
where it is easy to manipulate, add layers and change colors of my designs.
I keep experimenting and developing my ideas….
until finally one will stop me in my tracks…
and take me to that ‘happy’ place x
