Some time ago, I was approached by Northumbrian artist Sue Fenlon to create a range of jewellery using her original artwork. What ensued was an organic process of trials and tribulations that included varnished images, laminated print, rolled paper but all proved too temporary until we started on metal. Embedding an image in anodised aluminium made it permanent and waterproof and from that……Pictimagery was born.
With a sister living in Amsterdam and numerous trips to the city's fabulous art galleries and museums, it would be remiss not to embed the old masters.
This collection contains iconic works by the Dutch post-impressionist artist, Vincent van Gogh and the iconic Mona Lisa by Renaissance artist, Leonardo da Vinci.
"My work is a reflection of nature through the seasons. The amazing changes in colour, texture and emotions.
I hope my work gives a sense of being part of nature, and bring back memories to hold onto."
Words by Northumbrian-based artist, Sue Fenlon and inspiration for Pictimagery.
Sue's work is found, and exported, all over the world and online from:
This collection was inspired by a visit to an exhibition on oriental art at the V&A some years ago.
Included are some of the most recognisable examples of graphic art in the world; - The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai and the iconic crane by Utagawa Hiroshige II.
This collection is derived from a compilation of close-up images of a rare lichen found only in the Ross-shire area of the Scottish Highlands taken by Northumbrian artist, Sue Waters.
