The Dandelion Art

Welcome to The Dandelion Art, the work of an Italian artist now based in London. Her work covers a wide range of media, from abstract paintings and intricate line drawings to tattoos. Her work has been featured in magazines and exhibitions worldwide.

Like a dandelion, I let the wind lead me in new directions which lets me explore many different styles. In my work I love to capture the ‘magic’ and emotions that blow through the air.

Love is in the air

28 January 2014

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. After plenty of ex-wives/husbands/friends cover ups tattooed this past year, I thought, why not celebrate Valentine’s day with tattoos a little different from the old cliché? Couples or singles, with no fear of ‘what-ifs’. 

I’ve designed a special love-themed flashbook page (in either black and white or colour), all available for only £40 each. Simply pick the one you want below and contact me to arrange a booking (remember to include which number you want and where you want it). Please be aware that a non-refundable £20 deposit is required to secure an appointment.

Also, in keeping with the theme of love, I’ve also designed a limited range of hand-made Valentine’s day cards. They are available to buy on Etsy, all of which are completely unique and customisable (contact me with your requests).

Best Dressed Window Beckenham

8 August 2013

Two weeks ago I was asked to decorate the windows of Raggio’s Restaurant in Beckenham for the 2013 Beckenham Best Dressed Window Competition. The competition celebrates parks and open spaces in Beckenham, and hopes to encourage people to spend more time enjoying them.

Whilst most displays went for flowers and bunting, I decided to go for an illustration for Raggio’s window display, based on some views of Kelsey Park, a beautiful park in Beckenham. It created quite a crowd of curious passers by whilst I was drawing onto the glass.

Raggio’s display was voted 2nd place by the people of Beckenham. So thanks to everyone who got involved with the competition!

Coffee Art Project 2013

28 March 2013

I’m taking part in Coffee Art Project 2013 by the Allegra Foundation in aid of Project Waterfall, raising money to supply clean water to the Mbulu District in Tanzania. We take it for granted how readily available clean drinking water is. To see clean drinking water in the developing world, as accessible as coffee is to us now would be incredible.

The coffee-themed art competition invites all forms of media, from paintings, drawings and sculpture to film and photography – so long as it’s linked to coffee. For more information visit The Coffee Art Project.

The artwork will be displayed during coffee week, between 16th and 21st April  in London (The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL) where the pieces will be judged by a panel of experts from the art, education, coffee and media world.

It’s been a month now since I started this project and it’s almost finished. Come along to see the final piece at the exhibition, but if you really can’t wait then here’s a little teaser:
