MFPA artists across the UK capture iconic landmarks
MFPA artists across the UK capture iconic landmarks to showcase the true skill and craftsmanship that goes into the creation of iconic British Christmas cards.
In preparation for Christmas Card Day on December 9th we had 3 of our incredible artists visiting famous landmarks across the UK to capture and transform them into stunning ‘Christmassy’ paintings. London, Brighton and Cardiff were the venues and on Monday December 4th, each artist showcased their remarkable mouth or foot painting technique, creating an unexpected original image of the London Shard, the Brighton Pavilion and Cardiff Castle in front of the general public
Rosaleen (Rosie) Moriarty-Simmonds OBE was born without arms or legs as a result of her mother having been prescribed the drug Thalidomide during pregnancy; this has not prevented Rosie from leading a full and active life with her career spanning so many different disciplines: an MFPA artist, Author, Disability Campaigner, Presenter, Actor, Business Woman and mother. Rosie, located in the café at Cardiff Castle captured the Norman Keep in the heart of the grounds. Known for her bright colours and bold style, her Christmassy take on the historic and iconic castle is a good example of her unique approach to her work.
