It’s been a while since I wrote on my blog. My new role as development worker means I am spending most of my time at Inkwell and I’m afraid I haven’t been as creative in my spare time as I had hoped I would be. That aside, I do however have some very exciting news to share about my artwork and creative ventures!
The Place and Memory Book is now in the making and my fellow artist friends and I need your help.
A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to raise money for the publication of the Place and Memory Book.
The whole series of books is really high quality. I only own this one out of the series and it’s definitely a favourite, filled with gorgeous drawings and work by over 200 artists established or up and coming, it also includes interviews and high quality colour images of their work.
Some of the artists whose work stand out for me are Swedish born illustrator Petra Borner
Joe McLaren for his beautiful book covers and moody drawings
and Gabriel Moreno whose interview was included in this book. He has since been asked to create a piece for the cover of Illusive Part 4. The detail in his work just astounds me.
Sharilyn Miller is one of my favourite wirework jewellers. She has amazing skills and can turn such simple everyday objects into beautiful jewellery, for example, copper plumbing washers and copper pipes! It was her books that taught me the basic techniques of wirework and I can thoroughly recommend them. She also likes to use copper which made her an immediate hit with me.
Her new book is finally available to buy in the UK & it looks like a treat!
