E=MC2 by Raychel McGuin
Our vision is to create an accessible pathway for everyone to enjoy art without boundaries. Concentrating on Alternative Arts and Crafts, we create fantastical events that are a little more unusual and encompass all genres across diverse backgrounds.
We do this by working with communities to encourage creativity and build relationships with local artisans and creatives, in alternative venues, to break down the stigma of the Arts being inaccessible. This will be achieved through imaginative events, inspired marketing, creative ideas and engaging communications.
Art and Design by Raychel
Raychel is an Artist, Designer, Bodypainter and Illustrator. Inspired by alternative culture, steampunk, gothic and fantasy with a massive dash of geekiness.
We can create any kind of art to suit your tastes, pet portraits, fantasy art, blackboards, murals, digital art and illustrations. On a variety of surfaces including skin, wood, mdf, paper or canvas in watercolour, acrylic, oil or ink. Traditional paintbrush or airbrush - it’s up to you!
“I love starting with a blank page or canvas and a head full of ideas and transforming that into something that is often almost what I intended, sometimes it changes, sometimes it’s completely different. I am an eclectic; I take ideas and inspiration using lots of colours, styles and techniques to create the finished look. My style is almost chameleon like; I draw from the people and things around me, what’s in vogue, old masters, photography, and popular culture.”
Madame McGuin's Mini Mannequins
Madame McGuin's Mini Mannequins take pre-loved fashion dolls and upcycle to create alternative beings based on themes such as Horror, Fairies, Rockabilly, Goth, Steampunk and Geek.
Mannequins are created from various dolls, the original faces are removed and repainted, hair is styled or re-rooted if necessary, new outfits are created from existing outfits or newly made. All Mannequins come mounted onto a plinth with a name plaque.
Commissions taken - We can create your very own 'Mini Me' by taking inspiration from your own photographs. Please complete the Commissions Taken Form for a price and timescale. (usually around 4 weeks unless agreed in advance)
Pulling inspiration from alternative genres including steampunk, gothic, fantasy, rockabilly, geek, fairytales and mythology I create faceless fashion illustrations.
Painted in acrylic on MDF board, I offer original paintings, limited edition reproductions, prints and greeting cards suitable for all budgets.
Alternatively, I can immortalise your favourite pop star, film star or icon, creating an exclusive piece of artwork for you to hang in your home. I can also create personalised magical and lasting memories of by capturing the essence of a wedding gown, bridesmaid dress, prom outfit or costume. All I need is a full-length photograph of your whole outfit and close up of shoes, gown detailing and accessories (including bouquet for weddings) - from this we will produce a working pencil drawing for you to check before it is transferred to specially produced board and painted.
