I am a part of all that I have seen

+01 I have recently become so inspired by art that i am actually doing more then when i was on my fine art degree which i finished last week, i think its knowing that i have that freedom with no restrictions that has made me so inspired. I have also been obsessively watching my friends DVD of desperate romantics, which is a drama based on the lives of 3 of the pre-raphilites, William Holman hunt, john Everett Millias and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. I know its all pretty made up some based on fact but it has spurred and fueled my love for art again, and the reason why i wanted to be an artist in the first place...to make art work. so the images below are my inspirations, a few images of artists that i admire, and gain inspiration from.

''History has remembered the kings and warriors, because they destroyed; art has remembered the people, because they created''. 
–William Morris


 Graduate fashion week


+02 I have just finished my degree in fine art, and i thought i would have a look at the new fashion graduates and discover some of the wonderful stuff that has been created.
I love the pieces created Naomi New (Northumbria, the beautiful silhouettes, very structured pieces with a soft mix of feathers and Jewelles

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have recently become really inspired by heavily jewelled paintings and pre-raphilite works, this new graduate designer has some really pretty pieces with heavily patterned dresses and slips Gemma Williamson, (Northumbria) mixed space-age styling with ‘stained glass’ inspired prints for a wonderfully ‘off-the-wall’ mix. These are probably my favourite pieces that i have seen so far.

Some really beautiful stuff has come out of whiltshire college Salisbury, Sophie Lowe collection wowed at the show, she mixed hand knitted raffia and eroded textures in pale straw, silvery-blues and grey, i really love the the middle image with the natural bauble like sleeves its a really great mix, hand crafted couture :)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The collection that really caught my eye was by Danielle Ferguson, (Salford) its sooo playful her collection was based on the story-line of sarah-louise platt from 'corrie' and her teenage pregnancy i think that these piece are fantastic with the playful shapes, textures and fabrics.

+03 To add to the thrill that is today, i am creating a new title/banner for my blog, i want something that reflects my artistic side so i am working on watercolour piece at the mo its going ok but we will have to see, also now that i have more time on my hands because the degree is done i really want to make this blog prettier :) and filled with far more inspirational stuff. And my friend is coming down from wales tomorrow for a few days so fun to be had!
