Rebecca Cool Art
Have you noticed? I've been thinking for a long time about how to best represent Australian design and art on the Bondville banner, and as I was tucking in my big girl last night I looked up and knew I had to feature Rebecca Cool.
After the birth of our first daughter, we bought a beautiful artwork called New Baby for her room, by Western Australian artist and book illustrator Rebecca Cool. Rebecca's mixed media artwork (which I have featured here on Bondville before) utilises vintage fabric, sourced from her own stashes and sent to her by her many fans. Her artworks start with the fabric, and grow organically from there. Rebecca's signature faces, whimsical composition and folk style give me such joy; her work always makes my heart sing.
I hope it does for you too. Thank you Rebecca for allowing me to feature your amazing talent on Bondville.
