Continuing to showcase 'Royal' inspired artwork to commemorate and celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee, today I have chosen prints by Avery Tillmon. I love the rustic and vintage effect he creates and these beautiful embellished crowns perfectly represent our royal celebration.
“I approach drawing and painting like a very shallow sculpture. I build and take away until I’ve achieved what I envisioned at the outset.” By painting onto wooden panels his work shows interesting textural and natural qualities and richness is created by the inclusion of ruby reds, emerald greens, sapphire blues and amber stones.

Avery continued with his creative passion to study for a degree in sculpture, and eventually a career in art which has included teaching and designing, as well as sculpting and painting.
