Back from Tobago now and totally inspired but frustrated that I just don't seem to be able to find the time to spend here at the moment. Too many things going on that I need to sort out. But wanted to say that every comment or love lights me up ! So thank you and sorry that I can't be around to thank everyone personally - I hate that as have always thanked everyone for every bit of love. :(
Currently working on two new projects . CUSHIONESS is to promote new talent in surface pattern design and LOVENICKIX is to promote smaller fashion labels. One day I'll finally get my blog and websites to match up and running!
My heart lies mainly with palettes. I've found that I create two different types of palettes - one is almost to stand alone as it's own pattern and the other to be used for patterns. Stand alone palettes don't always make great palettes when used in patterns - I feel you need to have more of a contrast for these. Love that I'm learning all the time on this wonderful site. So glad I've been able to put my BA Honours Degree in History of Art & Design to use for a change. Life is so manic that you don't get time to do what you love and then this can somehow be forgotten.
' I met a young girl who's brain was on fire.
She said ' follow me now if your mind will not tire.
I'll show you a light bulb and I'll show you the sun.
I'll show you a rainbow where the colours have run'
And if you could see the colours that go flashing through my mind,
I have quite sensational senses for one so colour blind.
Take my eyes and you will see, painted priestess, differently.'
