Tocoda mixed media paintings
My background with fabrics has enabled me to enjoy many elements that I bring to my painting. Taking inspiration from draping (an extravagant use of fabric that creates soft, curving shapes) and couture embellishment (fine crystal decoration for couture gowns) I create luxurious mixed media paintings.
Please note that photography of refelcive paints and embellishments is very difficult and as such the picture below does not do the original justice, however I hope the image gives at least some indication into the stunning look of my mixed media paintings.
This huge silver heart was commissioned for a beautiful, historic building with very high ceilings.
I took inspiration from the modern and fashionable colours of the Purple Room and the fabulous suit of armour that stands guard by the window.
