Fashion to Colour
Fashion illustrations by Gillian Bell
About Gillian Bell
Gillian Bell is an Irish fashion illustrator based in Dublin. Following a successful career as a set designer with RTÉ, Ireland’s national broadcaster, on various shows and TV dramas, Gillian chose to return to her lifelong passion for illustration on a full-time basis. She creates bespoke haute couture fashion-inspired illustrations and portraits where she tries to capture the essence of her subject’s persona and individual style in each drawing.
Gillian has created three fabulous fashion illustrations for you to download and colour in at your leisure.
The practice of colouring has evolved from being solely seen as a childhood activity to one that is gaining popularity amongst adults from all walks of life as a form of relaxation and stress relief. Not only is it a calming and enjoyable activity, its benefits have also been proven to activate the parts of the brain responsible for creativity and logic and is considered as a good mind exercise, as it utilizes both sides of the brain’s celebral cortex and helps reduce patterns of negative thinking to be replaced with positive ones. It is a form of dedicated ‘me time’ that allows one to enjoy being in the moment as one colours. We’d love you to share your creative colourings with us on Instagram tagging @kildarevillage and using the hashtag #kildarevillagemakes.
