I am super excited to be able to present to you the work of the fantastically talented Cara Gray; illustrator, blogger, and founder of Uptown Girl. She is one talented lady and one to watch and follow! Her work is beautiful and fashion-led, and I am thrilled Cara has shared her work, creativity, and methods with us here on Dexterous Diva. Why not pop along to her site too and buy yourself a limited edition print? Beautiful! Take it away Cara…..
Fashion Art is my creativity of choice. My artworks are all digitally created; however, I often start off each piece by drawing, painting or collaging.
Fashion, Style, Beauty and Travel are my greatest inspirations. From fashion icons Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe to classic fashion photography – I am always in search of glamour, elegance and timeless style! This inspiration extends to my goal for each of my artworks. That like the ladies in my artworks, viewers are inspired to become the leading lady in their own lives.
I live between the Gold Coast and London, so I mainly work from home in my small studio space. I also work by appointment as a graphic designer, so I am often in the offices of Advertising / Branding Agencies.
I started off my fashion art collection ‘The Woman Of Paris’ by looking for imagery that inspires me- such as iconic locations in Paris and glamorous vintage fashion photography. I then started creating the initial sketches of my ‘leading ladies’, the backdrops and settings. I scanned these in and then created my artworks digitally.
My Fashion Art Website and store is online at– www.CaraGray.com. I also have a Fashion News website – www.UptownTwirl.com – which is focused on bringing the best trends, reviews and style inspiration to readers.
