2018 – The Arts School

Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted and the reasons good!

The Arts School is up and running and I am loving teaching again! Now we start the new year with lots of courses and a new teacher working with us teaching watercolour (Jo Hudson).

Come and take a class and hopefully enjoy it as much as our past students (and we) do! www.theartsschool.co.uk

The Arts School

Getting ready to run a taster day at The Arts School tomorrow.

General Art is one of my favourite courses as it is project based and gives you a chance to try different materials out and develop your own ideas and work. 

If you are interested in this course or any others, please visit or website email me at sophie@theartsschool.co.uk

Popsicle Lewes

A while ago I saw a shop in Lewes called Popsicle and was in love!   

“Live life in colour” is the text on the door of this shop, and it’s wonderful, vibrant owner Sharon does just that.

I am really excited to be exhibiting a series of paintings on the shops display board in the Needlemakers cafe.

  
Please check out the shop, the cafe, and my work and let me know what you think. 

Have a wonderful, colourful weekend!

Abstracts in photography

I have been using the iPhone 6 recently and the camera is much more sensitive. As a result I have ended up with some “abstract” photographs.

I know what they are because I know where they were taken but I am not sure if a viewer would be able to. 

I have been painting “abstract expressions” for the past few years and am feeling that the “abstract” is the viewers inability to know the context of the painting, whilst the expression is more clear. 

Are these photographs the same but in a different medium? They convey a time, an energy, colour,and movement, like the paintings.  

Here are the unedited photographic images. I will be exploring how to develope these over the next few days.
