My new large Hydrangea and Cowslip print is in the window at Black Asterisk Gallery in Auckland now ….

The last 2 large editions of hydrangeas have completely sold out, so here’s a new interpretation combined with delicate cowslip, straight from the roadside.

Miranda Brown Artwork http://emmabass.co.nz/miranda-brown-artwork/ http://emmabass.co.nz/miranda-brown-artwork/#comments Sun, 10 Nov 2013 09:19:11 +0000 http://emmabass.co.nz/?p=1745 [...]]]> I’ve spent the past 7 years photographing Miranda Brown’s beautiful fashion … and now she’s applying her talents into public and personal art.

We spent two days recording her creations which are most inspirational.  Her work really does come straight from the heart!

Here are some images from New Lynn Public Artwork – ‘Fabrics of Our Culture’
…. creating icons reflecting the diverse cultures to New Lynn: Asian, European, Maori, Pacific.

And below that her latest installation of artwork within the fantastic space at Jasmax architectural offices … featuring home wares such as wallpaper, light fittings, cushions, wall art etc.
