Latest Work....

Having a gossip with Myrna Loy

  I do post a lot of images on Instagram - working progress, things that inspire me, books, movie pics and vintage clothes etc... so here's a few images lifted from my IG account of my latest work. As you will see I have started to illustrate some little portraits of the all female cast of The Women 1939  I could go on and on about the beauty of this movie from the characters and the witty one liners to the amazing costumes designed by the one and only Adrian I will bring you a nice big 'The Women' post next week hopefully with some shots of my inspired pieces of work. I'm hopefully going to try and squeeze in a few dolls inspired by the movie too (which I'm so glad I own on DVD as I can watch it endlessly) they may take me all Summer as I'll have less time, but I don't think I'll be able to hold back on making a glamorous and sassy character in a 1940's hooded dress! I so want a dress like the hooded beauty Paulette Goddard wears in her first scene. I am constantly on the look out for one!

Lets all have a little drinky!  The Women 1939 Paulette Goddard as Miriam, Mary Boland as the Countess De Lave and Norma Shearer as Mary Haines
