Lulu Art – Design Team Announcement

There were some incredibly talented ladies that applied for the design team this round.  I had a very hard time narrowing it down to a shortlist, then an even harder time choosing from a bunch of ladies who all well and truly deserved to be on the team! I had to expand the team to 5 to make the decision a tiny bit easier.

In the end the decisions were made based on gaining a diversity of styles to give our blog readers more variety and the ability to learn more techniques.

I gave my previous team the chance to reapply and two had other commitments but I’m pleased to say that Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont and Robyn Wood are continuing on with this new term.

I’m delighted to announce that our 3 new members are Wendy Walsh, Kooky Makes and Karen Knight.  I am very excited to see what wonderful things our new team creates.

So you can get to know these three new ladies a little better here is a little more about them and some examples of recent work (click on the thumbnail to view larger versions of the photos).

Wendy Walsh

Where can we find your work?
https://www.facebook.com/wendyleedesign

What are you currently creating?
At present I am organising an art envelope swap, which involves many creative participants from around the world. I am also creating a series of art to be sold in a friends shop that sells products appropriate for children. I have learnt to professionally reproduce my artwork on archival paper (giclee) and will be selling my artwork in the near future.

What are your “go to” products right now?
I love to use acrylic paint and prismacolour pencils. However, water-colour and ink designs plus collage also intrigue me. I am always up for a challenge. Using different mediums and approaches keeps me inspired and constantly learning. I have found that quality paper and brushes are a must.

How would you describe your style?
I believe my style always comes out in all my work. I love whimsy, through to quirky, contemplative through to humorous. I like to paint with a happy heart and hope that my work generates the same feeling in the viewer.

Kooky Makes

What are you currently creating?
I have 2 art journals on the go, a large canvas for a friend, several hand made journals in progress, wedding invitations & decorations for another friend and am part of 3 currently running on-line art courses. I am also making a bag & a dress and a submission for a local art gallery.

What are your “go to” products right now?
My favourite products at the moment are gesso, watercolour (including pencils) and pastels.

How would you describe your style?
My overall design style is high key shabby chic at the moment. I really enjoy pastel schemes with pops of colour and muted backgrounds with strong accents.

What are you currently creating?
Currently working on an art journal in tag format.

What are your “go to” products right now?
Distress inks and markers, crackle paint , collage sheets and of course stamps!

How would you describe your style?
I would say its a little bit vintage/grunge but clean and simple at the same time. Also love a bit of colour at times too.
