Last year I featured the work of the talented local Illustrative artist Veronica Rowlands, her series of pictures  entitled London Fashion Dolls  and  Surreal Doll Collection  takes  familiar and nostalgic dolls and transforms into something more surreal and  fantastic .

Over the next few weeks, Veronica will be holding an exhibition that will feature her fashion dolls but also her more recent  ‘Interactive Wallpaper’ which has been created with members of the public across the city. To produce this piece of work, Veronica has taken her hand drawn characters to venues across London and asked for help from people of all ages to colour them in , adding their unique hand writing to a piece of community artwork to raise awareness and funds for Beating Bowel Cancer and Breast Cancer Care.

The wonderful and eclectic results will be shown in this exhibition alongside a solo exhibition of recent artworks with a percentage of all sales being split between the charities.

The Fashion Dolls – Veronica Rowlands, Artist and Illustrator

I have recently come across the work of local Artist and Fashion Illustrator Veronica Rowlands.

Veronica has always been fascinated by vintage dolls and toys and developed her artistic skill as a child by sketching exhibits in Museums and Galleries.

She still looks for inspiration visiting museums such as the Museum of Childhood and Pollock’s Toy Museum. Using this inspiration she has recently  developed her Fashion Dolls which blends the old and the new in an original and imaginative way. Her acclaimed London Fashion Dolls series uses London landmarks as a background for the Dolls who are often adorned by objects taken out of their familiar setting.

Her latest collection the Surreal Doll Collection take things a stage further when the familiar and nostalgic becomes more surreal and  fantastic .
