A few months ago, I had a 2 week group project at Uni, to find future trend predictions and track them on the British high street. My theme was metallic as you may of guessed. Our brief outlined that we had to find historic and current information on metallic. Then the fun part, shopping for an outfit to relate to our theme. Yes it's a dream come true, I got to go shopping as a part of my degree. To show what we brought we arrange a photo shoot with a model to present our work.
I'm writing this post because today I went shopping and all I could seem to find were metallic glittery items! I'm not complaining at all I love and I am so pleased it was my theme to work with. There's a lot of money to be made in trend tracking and would be something I would like to consider.
But I'm please to say I got a first in this project.
It started with a gift...
Just over a month ago it was my friends 21st and I wanted to do something a bit different. She's obsessed with Elephants so I painted her this on the left. She loved it and of course it was posted all over Facebook. Normally I keep my paintings/art quiet so people were shocked I did this.
However, I had responses I never thought I' d ever get, there were incredible. I now have a list of commissions I am currently working on and all from one post on Facebook. Crazy!
So I'm now getting paid to do something I love and actually like doing. I have just set up my own Etsy Shop to see more of my art work which you can find at.......
