I’ve had news that The Pebble Heads are a big hit with the organisers of Stars On Canvas and I’m being encouraged to ‘pebblise’ some more stars on canvas for the auction in aid of The Willow Foundation. So I’m looking at which celebs are also taking part by doing a canvas, there’s Lee Evans, Rick Astley, Katherine Jenkins, Fearne Cotton, Ian Wright, David Seaman, Ricky Gervais (now Karl Pilkington is an ideal candidate!) Now who will be the next celeb to become a Pebble Head?!
The Pebble Heads Royal Newlyweds – Prince William and Kate Middleton by Jacqueline Hammond
Pebble Head Celebs for Stars On Canvas, where “a unique collection of original artworks by well-known names from the worlds of stage, screen, arts, music, design and sport” will be auctioned online between 22nd November and 2nd December. Go to www.starsoncanvas.org.uk to bid on Jacqueline’s latest Pebble Head Celebs and other canvases in the charity art auction.
Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands.
Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory.
Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
