In The Studio

This is an old canvas board that I’ve been playing around with for years. Graffiti inspired, but also a nod to my fascination with symbolic languages. It might be close to being finished.

 

 

This is a damaged canvas, therefore a practice canvas (unless I can come up with something really clever!) Design inspired by Dia de los Muertos artwork. Needs color; thinking about embroidering directly onto the canvas with handspun threads.

 

 

I am continuing my Mehndi-inspired doodling. This one evolved nicely during a long overnight shift. I am starting to be able to extemporize the mehndi designs, and also beginning to add my own elements in – thus creating something that’s more my own style.
