The way you make me feel ….

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” said Juliet in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It doesn’t matter what it’s called … it’s more about what it is. And so it is, with this piece that I’m struggling to name… the title would never convey for me what it means or what it feels. Antique china rose, pastel pinks, delicate vintage jewellery. It’s all about capturing the essence of femininity & that delicious light feeling of all that is pink rose and pearl trinkets, light hearted love and girliness … Rose by any other name 005

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

My interpretation of the Queen of Hearts… but who is she really? She’s one of the four Queens in a deck of cards and there are various theories who she may be .. Catherine of Aragon wife of Henry VIII? Elizabeth Tudor consort of Henry VII? According to the Tarot, she is the Queen of Cups, a loving mother and a loyal friend. She appears in a well known nursery rhyme, baking tarts which a cheeky Knave steals. In the Alice in Wonderland version, she doesn’t suffer fools and utters her famous “off with their heads”. There have been songs written about her & movies made bearing her name.

Time to get busy .. the holiday is over!

Planet j9 has been very quiet over the holiday period, enjoying the sun sea and summer time fun.

Now it’s time to get back into the studio and get creative again!
