The Other Art Fair

Today I went to The Other Art Fair (I am coinciding applying to do it in October). It is a showcase and selling exhibition for independent artists in London. It was great to see such a range of work, of a high standard, in a commercial setting. Being an artist is a hard career, you…

Roy Lichenstein exhibition

Yesterday I went to see the Lichenstein exhibition at Tate Britain. I love his work for its bold, simplistic style paintings. I most enjoyed the pieces based on the everyday moments and objects, like “Alka Seltzer,” 1966, and “the Ring (engagement)”. They make me think of order, control and neatness (with the repetitive dots), as…

Finally got into the studio

I finally got into the studio for a short time today, but it was great! It reminded me of the requirement to assign time each week to make work. It is good for the soul, and your art practise. It is very easy to get caught up in life’s requirements, but if you aren’t healthy,…

Next thank you, for my food, Susan Prout rocks!

My friend is a talented handbag designer (www.susanprout.com), can also cook (with her brother) and very kindly catered my wedding. Here are a few photos of what above and beyond the call of friendship duty looks like… Sorry if it makes you very hungry!

Playing with photoshop filters!

I have been trying out a few photoshop filters on an image of woods. Years ago I had art envy of a print of woods, just simple tree trunks printed in a soft burnt umber tone. I don’t know who the artist was, but believe it was from Vermont. I love woods and trees; their…

Finding treasures in Devon

I am currently in Devon, and today it finally stop raining enough for a little exploration. I went to Ark Pottery, run by Vaughan and Angela Glanville. It is a great place, they have a wheel in the shop (where 2 children were being helped to make their own cups), and loads of wonderful pottery!…

Self publicity…

Just incase anyone missed it, or forgot to do it… I have been short listed for a photography competition run my The Print Space. I submitted this image because I found it made me consider Natural v manmade architecture. This is a successful image for me because: I like work that makes you have little…
