Art & Anniversaries…

I don’t know how it happened, but apparently this blog has been going for 4 whole years!!! That one completely passed me by! Here’s to getting to the big 5.

Anyway, on another note, I’ve been doing my thing with the paintbrushes and come up with this one in particular…

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this one! It may be familiar to you if you read the great Lula. It is from an editorial called ‘On A Throne in the Sky” .  I do so enjoy doing happy pictures. This picture can be found in print form, in both A4 and A5 on the Etsy shop.

Lula Magazine No.16!

So, I believe this to be the cover of Lula Magazine No.16. At least that is what Newsstand have told me. It is apparently already out! So better be quick before it goes. Image Via.

Art: Joan, Lula and the Beekeepers.

Here are some more of the pieces I’ve been working on. This one is taken from a beautifully simple editorial from Harper’s Bazaar UK from March 2013. It was one of those pictures that I instantly wanted to paint. Joan and Dior is up in the shop.

Those of you that are ardent fans of Lula may recognize this picture. It is from the 10th issue of Lula Magazine. I couldn’t resist the cat (or the 40′s hair and bow!) so I painted! Lula’s cat is also up in the shop.

Lastly we have my tribute to the amazing Spring/Summer 2013 show from Alexander McQueen. There was a Bee-theme to the show, so that is what I ran with. I just love those dresses though! The Beekeepers have made their way to the shop aswell.  I’ll be back with some New York lovelies soon…

Anais for Lula.

Something I’ve been working on for a while. Anais Pouliot’s portrait inspired by an image from Lula Magazine. Anais is up in print at the shop. I loved doing this one.

Art 2012.

During 2012 I didn’t really post much of my artwork, I was bringing together lots of different styles and creating something that suited me. This is still a work in progress, but here are a few of the things that I was working on last year (plus a few older ones that I’ve put to print!)  I’ll post some more recent things soon. I’m going more in the direction of the Hermes picture. Prints are available at the Etsy Shop.

Audrey Grace

So. This is what I’ve been doing for the past month – aside from roaming around Dorset. I was asked by the lovely owner of the soon-to-be opened Audrey Grace Boutique to create some artworks to sell as prints. Now, suffice to say I was rather excited about this as it’s my first real commission – if you don’t count painting my Aunt’s cat!

I’ll post some of my work and a few process photos soon, but for now here’s an interview with the owner of the boutique, Jaclyn. She loves Lula, need I say more…

◊◊◊

1. Tell me about yourself.

I am from Jackson, Mississippi- a small city in the deep south. I currently live in New York City where I am in final year of university studying acting. I plan to pursue an acting career. I also love fashion very much, and hope it will always be a part of what I do.

2. What inspired you to set up the Audrey Grace Boutique?

I wanted to bring all the beautiful things I had found all over the world back home. I had actually wanted to open a boutique for a while.. I dreamed about it. I cannot believee it’s happening!

3. Considering the name of your boutique, what are you favourite Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly films?

It’s really hard to chose, but..
Audrey: Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Charade, My Fair Lady
Grace: To Catch A Thief
4. I hear you are also a fan of the fabulous Lula magazine. If you could create a magazine of your own what would it be like?

Yes, I adore Lula! I’d love to work for them. If I could start a magazine I think it would be really original and full of wonderful people and things. It would be very girly, also! I actually thought about doing just that with all the lovely contacts I have made through the boutique.

5. What are some of your favourite books, magazines and blogs?

This is a loooonggg list
books: Classics like The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night, A Farewell to Arms, The Virgin Suicides, The Reader, Notes on A Scandal, The Awakening, Luella’s Guide to English Style, All of Tennessee Williams plays, Phillipa Gregory and Allison Weir’s novels, lots of biographies (a really varied list!)
magazines: Lula, Vogue (US & UK), Harper’s Bazaar (UK), Teen Vogue, NYLON, Material Girl, LOVE, Interview
Blogs: Fancy Fine, The Cherry Blossom Girl, Wish wish wish, It girl rag doll, Hannah and Landon, Sea of Fertility, various designer’s and shop’s blogs etc.. There are so many amazing blogs this could go on forever!
6. Who are some of your favourite artists and designers?
Artists- I love the art work of the Pre-Raphaelites. Millais is my all time favorite. Also Monet and Degas. Also today I admire the work of Mercedes Helnwein, and all of the artists that I am working with for my shop.
Designers- Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Rochas, Luella (she was my all time favorite), Miu Miu, Prada, Honor, Calla, Chloe, Marchesa, House of Holland, Erdem, Christopher Kane, Giles, Meadham Kirchoff, Alberta Ferretti, Band of Outsiders, Anna Sui, Carven, Givenchy, Imitation, Mulberry, etc. I love London fashion designers and all of the designers I am carrying in my shop.
7.What music have you been listening to recently?

This is really bad.. but I don’t really listen to popular music. I listen to Broadway soundtracks or movie soundtracks! I love She & Him, though!  ( Don’t worry Jaclyn, I listen to soundtracks aswell – Chicago, Funny Girl, Hello Dolly… I could go on!)

8.What does the future hold for you and the Audrey Grace Boutique?

I hope to continue pursuing acting. I think Audrey Grace will always be a part of me and I’d love to open it as a permanent shop one day.

◊◊◊

The Boutique will sell items from all sorts of wonderful designers and artists; from Erin Fetherston, to Up The Wooden Hills, Genevieve Godbout, Family Affairs, Wayward Daughter, TBA and Alice Takes A Trip (And more!). Below you can see some examples of all these wonderful things…
