Beautiful wedding photographs by Stonelock Photography featuring my personalised, bespoke table cards……
So day three in and things are in full swing at the Christmas Live Project.
I’m having such a wonderful time meeting interesting and lovely people, being inspired by my talented fellow Artists and talking about my work and inspiration.
One thing which has constantly been commented on my customers & visitors is how well the Artists’ work compliments each other….I’m delighted to be showing alongside Artists: Anu Samarüütel & Marina Ard – whom I know through Debut Contemporary Gallery. Our Artworks work in harmony together as we all have contemporary, playful handwriting.

Looking for the perfect calender? look no further extremely talented photographer and good friend of mine Susana Lopez Fernandez has a created a visually stunning calender entitled ‘Christmas is not all about shopping’, in which a stunning photograph lies behind each door:
Christmas is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and a widely observed holiday, celebrated on December 25 by billions of people around the world.
Advent Calendar is a photographic reflection on the commercial nature of the festivity over the past decades. Inspired by the traditional form of advent calendars which emerged in Germany at the beginning of the 19th century, as a method to count down the days of December before Christmas. She is releasing fourteen photographs twitter under #CalendariodeAdviento from 1st December to 25th December.
Once again Susana traverses the streets of London to compile these fourteen images that resorts to symbols and traditions that invite us to reflect upon an ever increasing crisis of collective traditions which have given way to a consumerist society.
Follow #CalendariodeAdviento on twitter @caracolll and purchase your own limited edition copy of Susana´s calendar for next 2014. Contact susanalf or DEBUT CONTEMPORARY if you would like to buy a copy of the calendar.
I simply love the work of fellow Debut Artist and Photographer Susuna Lopez Fernandez, she has been kind enough to share details of her recent body of work #Postcards from #Northern #Spain:
#Postcards from Northern Spain is a diary from a trip without the rush to our destination, in which the path becomes the star. #Postcards is a nostalgic diary which talks about memory, time and landscapes.
#Postcards was born by the observation of landscapes that were passing front of my eyes when I was driving, in a hurry towards my destination. I was so hurried to arrive on time that I could not stop to watch them.
Talking again about something I analyzed before in #SinPrisas: we are living too fast, I started this new project which talks about time, the slow trip, about the fun of driving, stopping and refueling and having a relaxing lunch without checking the watch if we are late. I talk about the present and the future will be allocated in a second place.
#Postcards talks about the memory of landscapes, those we are losing because of the modern motorways, that often we prefer for the safety and velocity.
It talks about my memories when I was a child and I travelled with my parents long trips and we had to stop to sleep and that was a reason for a new adventure.
With all these things in my mind I left my home in the beginning of September to drive over the North of Spain, from Aragon to Asturias. Driving only through country roads let me stop and took pictures without being in danger. I took the pictures on a regular basis. For almost one month I drove through villages and roads, discovering natural and artificial water reservoir, shepherds, old bridge, etc.
I introduce fifteen images, I called the project #Postcards because all these are in a small size, like a postcard. Each picture shows those landscapes that I discovered during this trip. The name of each picture came from the country road where I stopped every time.
#Postcards is a tribute to my country, Spain, to all those incredible landscapes that it has and we have almost forgotten them.
