Another great website called EyeCandy by freelance artist Lisa Ashcroft to add to the kitsch mix. Just recently I’ve been sharing quite a few with you. Paintings that you can study for hours are my favourite.
I am a fan of this artist Lisa Ashcroft. She was born and studied in the UK but now lives in Australia. Do you ever get that tummy flip when you see a painting with all the colours that you love ? Her work does that to me.
Absolutely not shy of mixing hues, Lisa uses a works with a mixed medium when it comes to creating so also makes hand crafted silver jewellery and ceramics. She also repurposes objects within her creations and – rubbish to ensure it’s used again and ultimately supports our environment.
Lisa Ashcroft uses textiles and lots of hand stitching so it’s a blend of textures and wow, the colours are gorgeously bright and intense. Inspired by her own tattoo work and kitsch street art along with memorabilia, cartoons, morality and human condition. I wonder if her past work as a nurse is also part of what inspires her ?
What do you think of her work ?
You can find lots of colour inspiration over on my Pinterest.
