{ sail away... }

A custom commission I did last year for the ever-stylish Alex, owner and head designer at AP Design House.

Though my sea legs are actually not that sturdy, any travel daydreams I have inevitably seem to come back to wooden-hulled boats slicing through jewel blue seas; thickly coiled ropes; breton stripes amassing and windswept, salty hair. Don't these pics make you want to slip on your espadrilles and set sail?! I thought I would share a few to get you through the end of the week - plus some commissions I have completed, some old, some new - but all reminding me of that sea-faring feeling I love so much. Enjoy!

'Le Premier Poussin' - a snippet of a marlin I did for a dear friend,
which in turn became a wedding anniversary gift for her mad-keen-fisherman-husband.

This piece I completed for my sister - it was a wedding gift to some great friends of hers that have a real style about them. She wanted something gender neutral but also with an underlying sentiment - and she came up with idea of a big, chunky knot. I was thrilled to do it as I really enjoy doing the monochromatic pieces every now and then, and the textures in this one were perfect to sink my teeth into. And yes there are multiple puns intended indeed - not only did they 'tie the knot', they also live in Knott St!
