Commissioned Paintings

Commissioned Paintings

A commissioned painting is ideal when the space suits a specific size, and colours.  The theme also reflects the nautical location, and it gives the entrance a welcoming lift.

Lazy Cats; Jungle Fish; Quince and Kim Soo

From the industrial bohemian cafe called Lazy Cats in Ubud, to the delicious ceramics and great coffee/food at Quince in Canggu, the eclectic and stylish resort of Jungle Fish overlooking Osh River Valley, and the ambient homewares shop called Kim Soo Home.  I couldn’t resist sharing inspiration from some of the clever designers in Bali.

Credit to Lazy Cats Cafe – designed by Architect Alexis Dornier.  Jungle Fish Resort – designed by Furniture Designer/Owner, Niki Nasr, and Architect Rob Sample.  Quince – Owners/Creatives: Michele and Armen.  Kim Soo – Kim and Giorgia.

Love your work.

 

Naturally Rugs

Naturally Rugs

There are so many options for rugs, it is integral to get the balance right within the room.  The colour; style; size; positioning, as well as the components of the rug are all important to consider.  I tend towards the natural wools, jute, hemp and sisal.  It is reassuring to see the carpet companies coming out with more wool ranges again.  I think they have more presence than artificial ones.  However there are times when the artificial ones are more appropriate in a practical sense.

Shopping for a client last week I found a beautiful range within the inner city from some of my favourite suppliers – SF Design; Artisan and Designer Rugs

Revisiting an earlier style of painting, but incorporating every tasty, relevant knowledge I have learnt since.

It is a looser style, which I am enjoying.  Always conscious of sound preparation of the surface and background, so it is always ready for whatever the next layer reveals.  Loving this process. The art often lies in knowing when to stop.

“A picture lives on many different levels at once. It is an interpenetration of planes of reality. It cannot be analysed or anatomised into single levels, because one level can only be understood in the light of others. The reality or interior life of the picture can only be realised as a total experience”
