Beaucatcher salon

A Christmas window…

Beaucatcher Salon, where I had my Hair Lines exhibition in Summer 2018, asked me to draw its Christmas shop window. It was all for a Stoke Newington Church Street local shopping night with collections for charity.

Starting with an idea by Beaucatcher’s stylists, the main window has Santa having his beard styled. Knowing the salon well, I gave Santa luscious waves and each Christmas fairy an up-do. I added a bauble-transporting elf on the door and two fairies carrying a comb across the window curtain.

Drawing at this scale, in this setting, has unique challenges. Read about what was involved in our blog.

The window won Best In Street, voted for by shoppers at Stoke Newington Church Street’s Christmas Night in Stokey, a community ‘shop local’ night with collections for charity.
