Studio Practice | Rabbet
Recently my husband James and I started a new venture – Rabbet. The goal is to create fun, affordable artworks for the home.
Most of the pieces start with sketching and painting. My studio has a large table where I do a lot of my collage and painting. More importantly, it has a door, in order to keep everything away from the little hands of my 5 year old daughter, Kaili. If I’m just sketching I tend to move around the house, with the sun (along with our cat Aberdeen). Generally I draw with no end product in mind.
I prefer to work in a style that is childish, naive, playful and fun. Although, I feel these pieces can be appreciated by adults as well as children.
After we’re happy with the drawings, they are often scanned into the computer, and colour is added, changes are made. Some of the artwork is done entirely on the computer. The final product is printed & mounted on to plexiglass, then cut to a custom shape at a local printing shop. We then polish the piece and add the mounting hardware by hand.
