MARIE WIDOLF ~ Be careful of how you sit on your NEST EGG, Gertrude! ...or is this a "prelude to an OMELETTE"?? ~
BY Mickie | 17-Mar-2017

Current exhibition runs until 22nd of March come to the gallery and pick up an original framed art piece. MARIE WIDOLF describes her technique and character : "I use Copic Multiliner pens and markers, archival Staedtler Pigment Liners, ink and gouache to give Gertrude form and dimension. The first ink drawings of Gertrude were penned in 2015 and are these days posted regularly on social media. Created for an age-less audience, she is an interactive cartoon figure, and followers frequently have conversations with her and “cheer her on”. My aim is to one day successfully license Gertrude, and to have her appear regularly nationally and internationally in magazines and newspapers. " M.W.
