Unicorns Live Here – Abstract Photography

Oh man, I had a lot of fun making these ones. I’d like to think it’s where the unicorns rub up against the My Little Ponies to have a rave… But I could be wrong! The beautiful bubbles collection are on Society 6 https://bit.ly/35Wg8tZ and Redbubble (HERE)

I made these by layering up some bubbles I created with oil and food colouring with some abstract light photographs, not quite as glamorous now, but it takes time to create unicorn bubbles!

Going Up or Going Down?

Current moods… Up then down, not quite knowing what’s going on and trying to keep focused on not wasting this time I have off from the day job. But then a load of people are in the same boat. I am wondering how had it will be for like minded artists and creators who have had this time to focus on their craft to get back into a work mindset. Going to be very strange sitting in an office thinking about colours and clay! So I made some arrows by layering textures and vibrant colours over arrow road signs. Think it portrays how I’m feeling right now. (prints etc available at Society 6 HERE)

Abstract Nature Photography

I have started a new hush project for someone involving ghostly vibes and nature. I’ve started off a bit strong to be honest! So these practice photos wont make the cut, but there’s something about them I quite like. I’ve been obsessed with layering textures and photos on top of each other, something I used to do years ago, before photoshop was really any good. It almost feels like cheating doing it so easily on photoshop now, maybe that’s why I’m using so many layers, to try and make things more complicated for myself!

Having A Smashing Time!

Some times you just have to let your frustrations out… Only joking! I was trying to make some textures from the broken glass and some siligum to push into clay at a later date. That experiment didn’t quite go to plan, but at least I got some nice stock photographs out of the day too.

Summer is (Almost) Here!

In this weird time of isolation it’s been easy to take more time to look out at the garden and just get a bit closer to the ground. Summer is on the way and things are sprouting where they shouldn’t be! I’m more of a ‘let nature be nature’ kinda girl, but when dandelions get to this stage of their lives I must admit I’m pretty quick with chopping down the ones on the lawn. Hey, the bees have hard their fun, time for you to go! But if you look closer it is amazing how many small bugs and aphids live just under the dandelion seeds! go, get your magnifying glasses, freak yourself out! These are some fun photos I’ve been taking for stock photography sites at Shutterstock (here) and Adobe  Stock (here)

Abstract Geometric Photography

Well the lockdown in the UK seems to be having effect on my general creativty cracker point. I’ve been having a great time! Started working on some abstract photography, something I’ve not really explored since college, and back then Photoshop wasn’t really an option! I’m not sure the camera will forgive me for the settings I made it do, all the while spinning it around like a ballroom dancer. Going to explore mixing art work with this technique a bit more today, see what happens! Thank goodness I don’t do film photography anymore, this would have turned out expensive!

Buttons, So Many Buttons

I’ve recently got into sewing. Obviously nothing normal like cushions or pretty dresses, but weird voodoo dolls… But it’s given me the nickname of Shelly Bobbins at the moment. I rather like it. Have you been given any weird nicknames from hobbies?
So I asked for some buttons for Christmas… And boy did I get buttons! Stock photos available at Shutterstock HERE Also available at other stock sites, send me a message if you want a link!

Vintage Toy Cars

I don’t know about you but I find cars so boring now a days. I mean sure, vintage cars were probably not built for speed, or comfort, or wind, but they sure had better styles than the dull ones today. I try and collect battered vintage toy cars that show they have been well loved and totally thrown around the garden. All stock images at Shutterstock and Adobe Stock, links below!
