What have I been up to?

19 Sep

During the summer break I spent much of my time working in a food hall on the deli counter, when I wasn’t at work I spent time with my boyfriend, friends and family. I went to T in the Park, a pretty well known music festival in Scotland which I also went to in 2009. It was a fantastic weekend. This year I think my favourite performance was Newton Faulkner or perhaps Black Eyed Peas or Eminem or Stereophonics… it’s a difficult choice with so many fantastic unique acts!

I was also lucky enough to take two trips to Turkey. Whilst I was there I worked on my summer project, which is based on the theme ‘colour and pattern’. I was inspired by the colour and pattern found in nature both in Turkey and at home. I worked from the front of my sketchbook whilst in Turkey and the back whilst in the United Kingdom. Below is a slideshow of  some of the pages in my sketchbook. For more images please go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/42907177@N04/sets/72157624981180368/

Whilst working I my sketchbook I was inspired by numerous artists and designers such as Marimekko, Craig Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Vivienne Westwood and Amelia Hegardt which I intend to blog about at a later date so as to create a record of  my inspirations.
