Here is the first of hopefully many collages. The Union Jack is really popular as a decorative art piece for the home, be it cushions, canvases, rugs, throws etc. They’re featuring in many different colour ways, straying from the usual red, white and blue.

Here I’ve combined acrylics, acrylic inks and lace trim on water colour paper primed with gesso. It’s inspired by heraldic tapestry/embroidery, textile artifacts encased in glass frames and vintage, home decor so popular in our times.

I’m planning on doing a star spangled banner next…. looking forward to embarking on that!

Sorry, this art work has since sold.
