Women and Art

Hi all! just a little peek into some old work that was done for my old label Opal Orchid Black (which then morphed into House of SpiritFlower and House of Shadowflower).

I,m very much inspired by the female form,society and cultural ideas about women,women artists,women in the bible,women in mythology and just how amazing we are!
The work below is my version of goddesses or spiritual manifestations of emotions,flowers etc... including the inner child.

This is a theme that continues to inspire me and will be a constant element of House of Spiritflower. Enjoy the photos!


Rose Red

Little Miss Sunshine


Works in progress, works in re-use and old works that inspire me now.

A few days ago i took pictures of my some of my bead embroidered t-shirts,mainly to test out my photography skills(shaky hands = plenty of cursing and asking my partner to take over.) and to re-inspire me.

I had realised the beadwork was way to heavy for the t-shirts so was going to put the appliques to use on a different project but wanted some pics first of how they looked before they were transformed.

Below is my own artworks and beadworks that are being re-used at the moment to create intricate bags (my next post will have progress pics of those.) Apologies for the shaky camera work, i unfortuntaely suffer from the shakes every time i hold a camera!

I will post how some of these beadwork pieces got transformed into new items or the materials got re-used for new beadworks.
