I’m having a ‘good news for art week’ as I just heard that 2 of my large paintings of vintage dresses have been pre-selected for the Royal West of England Academy  Open- fingers crossed for final judging!
The RWA is the UK’s only regional Royal Academy of Art and one of only five in total, alongside those in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and London.

New style of dress painting

I’m just starting on a new series of dress paintings using an ‘A’ line dress shape as a  different silhouette – what do you think? I’m planning to make the new series more graphic as a contrast to the 1950s vintage party dress series. The first painting is a pair of dresses contrasting winter and summer landscapes- Dimdra and Vera’s dresses.
