The Little Arts Festival!

I am part of a team of volunteers that thought it was a good idea last year to put on a 10 day art festival. August 19th-28th in, and around Rushlake Green.

We are excited to announce the programme! Printed copies coming soon.

Please check out the website for the full list

There is visual art, music, crafts, classes, performances, and lots more! All by local artists, all showcasing the creative talent in East Sussex. 

What better to do this August than to come and join in?

Calling all creatives!

Have you ever tried to create something from nothing? Well that is what myself and a small team of volunteers are attempting to do! 

Please support us by participating in our project!

Endings for new beginnings

I’ve been very quiet of late because I am in the process of leaving London and moving to “the country”.

I finished work. (Last blog post…)

Now I have cleared out my studio.

It’s the end of a lovely time! It is great having a studio, having the space to go and work instead of trying to steal some space in your home. It helps focus your practise, and allowed me to go big! But a word of warning… Big can be difficult to move when it’s time to get going…

I was lucky to get a studio through a charity called ASC, but it’s time to move on, so I am no longer The Artist in 6a….

Next update (and new name…) to hopefully follow in get the week, fingers crossed!
