Christmas Gift Ideas
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…
O for Owl
P for Panda
Q for Quail
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:
‘Duck Friend’ – Earrings
Mini Hand painted Vase
I’m also going to create a few small Artworks and Ltd Edition Giclee Prints
‘The Tree Of Life & Growth’
Here are two of the events You’ll find me at alongside a host of talented creatives:
Live Christmas Project (6th- 21st December 14)
Also taking part in this exciting project are talented Artists (& Friends)
Anu Samarüütel & Marina Ard I’ve exhibited alongside both at Debut Contemporary Gallery and absolutely adored the work they create: Anu’s striking, colourful Illustrations & products fill me with joy and Marina’s intricate late Prints & Paintings are stunning!
So I was delighted when Marina asked me if I’d be interested in taking part in this project
Today I’ve been working on my handmade, Up-cycled frames:
I’ll be posting further details next week
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.
