This amazing 1945 painting by Vanessa Bell, Charleston Drawing Room, is for sale at Messum’s (but for rather a large sum of money!). The curtain fabric, however, is available at the Charleston shop; and is to be found on the endpapers of Good Things in England.
PRINT: Tea Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page
Relaxing with a cup of tea and a good book is my favourite past time because it relaxes me and I can get lost in a completely different world for hours. If I am feeling stressed, unwell, upset or not myself in any way, reading and drinking tea help me to feel more positive and comfortable. My love of tea and books is shared with my brother, which gives it another deeper meaning to me because we can share books and types of tea.
Through composition, shadow, and pattern, I like to create images that have a rich narrative basis. Taking influence from Japanese woodblock prints, German expressionist cinema, medieval woodcuts, and everything in between, I take the craft of papercutting, mix it with digital technologies and create my own harmonious hybrid.
