Art Deco imagery is something I go back to from time to time. I love the decorative and stylish clothing of this period, especially the hats. I used various textured papers, sweet wrappers and wool to complete the hat and scarf. Cottons were layered on to form the hair and acrylic paint was then used to paint the face and add to the shine of the hat. The initial idea came about after sketching ideas for mosaic designs, simple shapes enhanced with strong colours.
