Purple Greetings Cards
Hello my name is Claire (aka Miss Poochie) and I am July's new guest author here on *pur-ple I was very excited when Louise offered me the opportunity to contribute to her blog - and am looking forward to keeping you inspired with a feast of fabulous snippets of info from my life in one of the most hyperactive cities on earth Hong Kong along with features on artists/designers who are currently grabbing all my attention.
So first a little bit about me, after graduating from a graphic arts course up in Leeds in 2007 I jetted off to Hong Kong for a career in graphic design and art direction.
You can see my work on my website at www.misspoochie.org, i have incorporated a playful feature onto the site where I upload a new doodle each day. I like to capture the humorous idiosyncrasies of human nature, in characters which amuse both children and adults. My doodling is all about observation. I am always looking for the little oddnesses in people/things to draw upon.
I have recently been working on some paintings centered around rabbits which have grown into a complete exhibition of different animals which I am currently showing in a dessert boutique in Soho, Hong Kong. The exhibition is called Art-liscious, and has been running throughout June and now into July, displaying both my paintings and my doodles. My paintings and prints are available to buy from the exhibition but for those who can’t make it to Hong Kong they can also be purchased from my website and from my store on Folksy:www.folksy.com/shops/misspoochie
So join me next time when I will be showcasing the work of Hong Kong based artist LINVS, who prides himself on a wide array of very FANCY costumes
Till next time
