So many apologies for the delay with the animal alphabet – which if had gone according to plan would have been finished several weeks back (only just got a new scanner up and working) and busy with MA, teaching etc….
Let’s kick off with a few a day to blitz this alphabet…

Christmas Pop-Up Shop Update

Posted on

So as mentioned on my last blog update, I’ve been a super busy bee of late creating new pieces for an abundance of Christmas Pop-Up-Shops which are coming up.

My aim has been to create accessible lifestyle pieces and affordable Artworks so my work can be accessible to all!  I have been taken out of my comfort zone…..yesterday was in The London Bead Company in Kentish Town buying pliers and all manner of Jewellery making nick nacks (the staff were friendly and extremely helpful) – useful as I have an array of painted wooden beads but unsure of the next steps.

Here’s a sneak peak at some of jewellery the pieces so far (just need a varnish and will be made in bracelets, necklaces & Kitsch earrings:

Bespoke Picture Frames

Posted on

Last night I was up till late painting miniature vases (great therapy) it occurred to me, that they look great inside box frames, so I’ve decided to make a series of bespoke hand-made frames – which I aim to finish and put on the market by mid October in time for Christmas!

I love the idea of creating affordable mini Artworks which are completely unique and accessible to people.
