Welcome to my online blog where i can share my portfolio and ideas with you all
Cassandra Margaret Wilkinson, the founder of LittleMissArtyFarty, is an Aberdeenshire based artist and fine art photographer. Her artwork is created through enjoyment of the world’s nature around her of which are reflected into her photography work.
Her paintings as well as her photography are full of colour and very vibrant working from both life and still images. Miss Wilkinson enjoys using a variety of colour as she believes the world is a bright and beautiful place and with more colours brings more happiness. Her inspiration comes from the Fauvism art movement and based several of her early works on Henri Matisse style of minimalistic paintings and outstanding colour choices. Other artists that Miss Wilkinson find inspiring are Andy Warhol, Egon Schiele, Salvador Dali, Emily Winfield Martin, Martin Parr, Kat Von D, Caravaggio and Bernini; but it is not just visual artists that inspire this young artist, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and vintage lifestyle has also inspired her work.
Depending on the heavy workload of her artwork and the medium Miss Wilkinson decides on using a finished piece could be created in a matter of several hours up to a month. The artist carries around an artist journal and notes down her initial ideas and any inspirations; Miss Wilkinson would then develop this more by creating a sketchbook full of drawings and paintings, written notes and also experiments photo’s and paintings together until satisfied with the final idea. Oils and watercolours are her favourites because of how the colours smoothly blend together. Acrylic is also a favourite for its thick layers and boldness.
In the later future Miss Wilkinson would like to own a studio for LittleMissArtyFarty and also produce a magazine as well as fight for Women’s rights!
