Interview with the Artist Brad Gray

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium? Do you do any other creative arts projects or work in other mediums?

A: I’ve been painting on and off since I was sixteen and eventually became full time around 1995. Oils are my favoured medium and I’ve recently been exploring different surfaces and grounds. Ball point pen is my second choice as I find it’s a lovely meditative process building up the gradations of tone and soft cross hatches.

Interview with Melanie Talkington and Maria Curcic

Designer Melanie Talkington Of Lace Embrace Atelier

Q: What inspired you to create garments which have a period style?

A: I’ve always loved the history of fashion and especially the undergarments that modified the body shape. It’s wonderful to imagine a time when people truly enjoyed fashion and dressed for occasions. Each layer of clothing has a story and purpose, it’s all so inspiring and fascinating!

Q: Is there a particular time period you feel your designs are best suited for?

A: I used to be quite strictly Victorian/ Edwardian. Now I’m inspired by upcycling beautiful antique lace, bohemian with a touch of eroticism and blending a variety of eras.
