Love this


Sepia vintage inspired suit painting features a fitted Victorian style jacket with sepia and pale blue striped cuff, pocket flaps and scooped collar. There is a lace trimmed ivory coloured blouse underneath and a pair of lace up Victorian style boots completes the look, displayed on a tailor's dummy. The background is cream. I painted this in my Norfolk studio, it is mounted, simply framed in lime-washed wood and ready for you to hang. I'm going more steampunk with this look it's so cute though, what do you think? I have called this one 'Sepia Suit IV'.


I have a background in fashion and textiles so this series have given me the chance to really indulge myself. I am also mad about vintage clothing, I love a '40s suit. This jacket is a '40's shape but also with Victorian elements too. So it's a classic steampunk mush up. Lovely! I did enjoy the design process here ensuring that there is a corresponding left and right facing image. I liked the border so much, I extended it to reach the cool boots. I had fun with the hidden coffee cups and handbags. The inspiration for the border came from the fantastic Aubrey Beardsley, brilliant and controversial artist of the Art Nouveau movement.
