‘Dream Abstraction’ series finished

Posted on Updated on

I’ve finished off my three Artworks which will be exhibited at the RR Gallery (Notting Hill) and auctioned at the Dream Ball on 7th March with 50% of the sale price going to charity HELP Counselling.

The event promises to be magical and unforgettable! when else would you be given the opportunity dress up as a Dream Character & join a Costume Parade & contest in the same evening as an Art auction?! and best of all it’s for such a worthy cause! The tickets are selling FAST so don’t delay and purchase yours here: http://www.luciddreamalchemy.com/page/test2

I have taken a more abstract approach to the works I have created for this….my work always has a surreal, dream-like feel and naturally dreams are never clear nor follow any logic (mine certainly don’t) so I’ve allowed them to follow their own path.

There are Influences from the Paul Klee exhibition which I saw at the Tate Modern last week.

‘Urban Wildlife’ workshop at CGP Gallery

Posted on

On Friday I taught a one day workshop for 6 -14 year olds at CGP Gallery.

The theme was ‘Urban Wildlife’ – I started by getting the children to draw their school playground in fine-line pens, then make animals/creatures out of coloured paper and magazine imagery which they imagine visit their school during the School holidays and what they might get up to

Tea parties for foxes and squirrels came to mind…

Yes this was my version

This workshop planning is hard work 😉 ………..

This is one reason I love teaching children, they’re so creative and free!

Today I went to CGP Gallery (Canada water) to see the Urban Wildlife exhibition which consisted of works from Primary Schools in Southwark on the theme of inner-city wildlife which children would see in and around their schools:

The workshops run from 10.30-12.30 and 1-3pm on Friday 21st January or Wednesday 19th with Artist Claire Blundell Jones and are for anyone aged between 6 and 14 years, best of all they are completely free! no need to book just arrive promptly….

Here are a few of my favourites from Southwark Primary schools:
