Last week I was sent some wonderful photographs of my work that I’m excited to share. In November 2020, I worked with my lovely friend & very inspiring creative director Mags McAlpin on a Christmas project for the historic Georgian city of Armagh in Northern Ireland. The brief was to create winter illustrations of Armagh’s Georgian buildings & landmarks for use on window vinyls for all the city centre Christmas shop windows. The illustrations were also to be used for lanterns in one of the city’s cobbled lanes.

I really enjoy drawing buildings so these elegant, beautiful buildings full of period character were an absolute joy. It was different but really interesting working to only white & to the specifics required for printing on clear vinyl which was new to me. I worked closely with Mags under her direction on the artwork, and when the images came through of what Mags & the printers had created, I was blown away by how magical it was!

When I received the photos, it was very snowy here in Belfast so it felt perfectly festive to be seeing the snowy scenes again!

Chat soon,

Hello! Starting a brand new art blog is like looking at the first new shiny white page of a brand new sketchbook. It’s best not to think about it too long and just get something down on the paper. So here’s my first post.

I’m planning to share my news, projects, art processes, peeks into my sketchbooks and maybe some work in progress here, so if you’re interested, please bookmark my website and call back soon.

Thanks,

Rachel
