This is what I have been up to the last 3 weeks- Making Art that sells- Home Decor

A course run by two very talented, fabulous inspiring women- Lilla Rogers- Owner and creator of the amazing "Lilla Rogers Studio" and Margot Tantau, Art Director of CBK Mid-West. the First of all I want to say that this course has been a great vehicle to force me out of my comfort zone. So far we have done - week 1 Metal, Week 2 fabric and week 3 glass. I was a little sceptical about my ability to do the mock-ups. But I have to say I came through having learnt so much!! It pushed my photoshop skills way beyond when I first started. Working with a mood board forced me to think in a colour scheme and a look that I applied to each assignment thus far. I will go in to the process in more depth after week 4. week 1-

Week 2- Fabric

Week 3- glass

Click here for a link to Multi Faith Centre's facebook It was a honor to be part of this Multi Faith exhibition. 2 of my Islamic "Zoomorphic " pieces were selected for this show. the pieces were divided between 2 venues. There were pieces with both Arabic and Hebrew calligraphy. All the artists had a very individual take on the interpretation. It was really an interesting show that bought the 2 cultures together. The Forum was very interesting too.
