Welcome to Marilyn’s world…

Standard

Over the years I have done painting and drawing, pottery and rock sculpture. I was lucky enough to have taken a weekend workshop with George Rammell, at the Brackendale Art Gallery. It was very inspiring to hear him speak about his passion for his craft.

Working with fabric, has always been part of my life. I love colour and working with different textures. Distressing, painting, and adding embellishments is a great deal of fun for me. I’ve always loved the thought of creating something completely different.

Wearable Art”, is one of the things that intrigues me these days. A piece of clothing I have altered in some way, a pair of shoes I have painted, or bracelets I have created from vintage buttons and beads. I also love creating coin purses that are different and unusual.

Using upcycled fabric is very important to me. The coin purses and handbags I create are all made from clothing or fabric remnants I purchase from thrift stores. It’s very important to me to”reuse”, wherever possible.

I write short stories, some will make you laugh, while others will make you go hmm…its a great way to let the world know what makes me tick.

I have been around cats my whole life, they are the inspiration for the cartoon cats I draw and paint. ‘Little Bean”, is the fat orange cat we live with, he spends his days with his dog Molly, our little Westie.  Any cat lover will tell you, “it is never dull living with a cat”. Their nature is one of whimsy and sarcasm, we love it.                                                        

I share the castle, with Paul my husband. He supports my endless ventures in art, and really is a true prince.

.In short……. I will post stories, photos, random info of the day and other dribble I think you should know :0)

Stay tuned…
