Give it a wrap

Over the past several weeks I’ve been working away at creating designs for products. There’s a little thrill seeing one of my drawings wrapped around a mug, printed onto a duvet or splashed across a credenza (which is one of my favourite words).

It’s hard to know how to divide my work time. Creating large funky pieces for exhibition is a fun, challenging and I like to imagine these pieces up for people to see. Why make art if no one is going to see it? That’s part of the fun of creating.

There is also the part of my practice that focuses on products. Here I can use my pens, markers, think about splashes of colour and dash something out in much less time than the bigger works. It’s nice to have something finished over a couple of hours instead of a couple of months.

I have a Society6 page full of stuff for gifts, home, office or whatever.

I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. I also work as a primary school art teacher. I feel lucky that I can divide my time between the two activities.
