New Lilydove and Chou Chou on Flickr

Hey - check out Lilydove and Chou Chou's new Flickr page! I really throw up all my inspiration here and organise and re-organise as I feel led. I have many varied methods in my artwork but I find that one thing feeds off another and the underlying thread that ties it altogether is my own individual person - the way God made me! This was a joint effort with my daughter messing about with a printing press, various inks and dyes and fingerprints.

this is the life

Bessy was my daughter's invention. I have little chance to isolate myself in my own creative universe so frequently my 5 yr old daughter is involved in what I do. I find her so fresh and inspiring - uninhibited.
Little boy blue is poorly today so I am finding myself contorted around him and a laptop ..
Here is an example of my multi-media art:

Bonjour!! I am Alexandra and I am bursting with excitement at the thought of getting my little store underway to offer you lots of lovely products to decorate your life!
Chou Chou means 'darling' in French and I am presently sitting in my temporary studio with my two little darlings sharing drawings and inventing lots of ideas for the moodboard.. meet Bessie
