This year’s rhythm has changed, slower or faster, a rather chaotic tempo... As a result, emotions have also been shaken up. As time slowed down I decided to combine my two passions in a slightly different way and explored new possibilities, turning my drawings into jewel-like illustrations. One painting translating one feeling or emotion, travelling through 2020 one picture at a time… Treating each illustration like a potential jewel,I have been learning how to reproduce new materials and gemstones in each new miniature painting with gouache and the thinnest brushes. Each illustration comes alive in a 20sec animation and inspires “Imaginarium Atelier" jewellery designs. https://youtu.be/EGSreXAug9Q
Gouache is a technique of painting with opaque watercolour. It has a special place within the jewellery industry as it has been used for centuries by jewellery designers where the traditional artistry and fine jewellery design meet. Also known as ‘rendering,’ this art form reflects the artistic vision of a designer and serves as a guideline for the craftsmen who physically create the jewels.
