My Room

My room in our flat has become more important to me as its a place I can put objects and paintings and photographs that I have collected and have been given to me over the years. I get to enjoy them and let them inspire me.
Hair salon painting from Afghanistan given to me by Ella

 This painting is on a metal surface and was given to me by my cousin Ella she obtained it on one of her research trips to Afghanistan. Its for advertising a beauty salon. I love it! I have hung it next to a white ornate wardrobe that I have on loan from my brother Eli. He has moved to Paris for a few years, he has great taste and is always inspiring me. He brought me the teapot below for my birthday. It looks great on my shelf!

Teapot from Elias and Sebastian
Buttons from my wonderful Aunty Amanda
Last Christmas my aunty Amanda gave me her button box. I have always loved playing with these buttons and love that she kept them in colour co-ordinated sections. I have decided to make it into a table so I can keep them forever. Still need to do this!
Oil painting by Suzanne Redstone
This is on loan from my Mum who is an amazing artist, she did this in the 1960s but has continued to create beautiful work.

I am so lucky I have a creative mum!

present from Louie
This soap was given to me from my friend Louie, I have not opened it yet as the soap is shaped in red as a Dachshund and is to cute to use! Louie has a Dachshund called Billy, there is a picture below that Louie made of Billy. I have known Billy since he was a puppy, he made me fall for Dachshunds big time.
Beautiful Billy
Painting by Edd Bagenal
 Edd gave me this for my birthday, its painted on a small piece of hard board and its beautiful. Thanks Edd! I also got this card below from Anthony, I need to get this one framed, it always makes me smile.

Painting by Shaun Caton
Shaun is a pretty amazing artist, He is known world wide for his performance art but is very prolific in his sketch books and paintings. I love this painting, he let me choose which one I wanted as a thank you and it was so hard to choose, I loved them all! He is inspired by cave paintings and primitive art.

My room is still work in progress.
