I recently started a wish list page on the blog. Like some things in life, I started it…but then slightly forgot about it – my intention is to keep updating it (because if nothing else it is a great reference tool for those wishing to buy me a gift!) but somehow I haven’t had the chance recently. One of the first things that I uploaded to that wish list was a piece of Kimmy Hogan art.
As you know I am always on the lookout for great affordable art and I have fallen in love with the clean contemporary lines, abstract quality and pastel tones of Kimmy Hogan’s work. Her artwork is perfectly suited to our Singaporean abodes (which seem to be all painted in the same shade of white). All that white needs some colour and unless you are lucky enough to live in a Colonial black and white, the chances are your home is modern, so Kimmy Hogan’s work will compliment your interiors without a second thought.
Like all the best careers, Kimmy Hogan’s has been shaped by a mixture of her passions and experiences. Starting out in graphic design, Kimmy realised over time that her love for art and home interiors could come together with her illustrator skills to create a new direction for her career, and her move into the world of the creative arts was born.
Her illustrations are digitally hand-drawn and have a fluid, abstract/painterly look which she credits to her love of oil paintings. Released earlier this year, the limited edition ‘flat lay’ series beautifully depicts the current trend for styling gorgeous trinkets on a flat surface and capturing the items from above. Her second body of work is titled ‘still life’ and captures the beauty of leaves and flowers in vases – a very contemporary depiction of the traditional still life. Both are equally beautiful – all are printed with archival inks on quality 300 gsm 100% cotton rag card and each piece comes in a choice of four sizes, giving you plenty of options.
The full range of Kimmy Hogan’s work is available through one of my favourite online stores, Resident GP. Once you have visited this site, you will no doubt be coming away with more than a Kimmy Hogan piece of artwork as their store is full of the kind of beautiful trinkets that Kimmy Hogan depicts in her flat lay series. Resident GP will ship internationally.
