I'd like to feature a good friend of mine who has been very quiet about her considerable talent up until now.
Billie is a textile artist who is often commissioned to create large scale art pieces. In particular, the London based office of the charity, Jeans For Genes quickly snap up her canvases made of denim scraps.
A lot of her work depicts well known London landmarks and have a definite trendy Brit Art feel to them.
As well as her fabric collages, Billie also does upholstery. She has a huge collection of retro and vintage fabrics, (I know, I've drooled over them!) and uses them to transform old junk shop finds into something funky and fabulous.
Tired old cinema seats.......
......... transformed into retro chic!
Billie is still in the stages of setting up her website, "Olive May", but I'll be putting a link on here as soon as she's ready and I'm sure she's going to be fabulously successful!
