2017: Year of Color

TWELVTY is a journey round the color wheel a month at a time. 

Everything I've ever painted, dreamt and doodled has been leading up to this year & this adventure.

Want to join us? 

The doors to TWELVTY  close  on 28 February.  Don't miss out - sign up now!

As part of this project, each month I'm creating mixed art in just the one color. Month by month the fruits of my one-color work will be available to buy in my Etsy shop.

The year began with Yellow in January - everything lemony lush, bright sunshine color to welcome in the new year. Each moth has a new color, I'm now in a month of yellow-green, the color of springtime.

Mixed media art from repurposed book pages and found paper

12 in 12

A while back I created a mixed media art journal, it was a year long project dedicating each month to a single colour: 12 colors in 12 months. Collage, paint, stitching, fabric, doodles - everything went in this book - just one rule: one color at a time.

Beginning in January I cycled my way round, month by month, a few pages at a time, starting with magenta, through the primary/secondary/tertiary colours, ending the year in Red.

Ever since then I've had the desire to follow up & reinvent this idea. 

In 2016 I created a class for 21 Secrets based on similar techniques and reignited the desire to take another year long journey like this. Only bigger than an art journal this time.

 

That time has arrived! Join me in 2017 with a new & much more muchier imagining of this project.

Welcome to TWELVTY!

The original "12 in 12" book looked like this...

Penn brings a beautiful mix of playful yet calming energy that allowed me to connect to myself and the others in the group on a deep level without all the seriousness.

Vector Cats

I love cats. So I made these.

Each of the Vector Cats originates from one of just five lovingly hand crafted cat vector shapes, which is then individually coloured and digitally tweaked in Photoshop to add their unique character.

Vector cats are friendly, don't need feeding or letting out in the middle of the night. Hypo-allergenic on account of their digital fur 😉

These guys are available now on mugs, phone cases, Tees, Hoodies & all good stuff.
