Open Studio Success

After a quiet start the Open Studio session today was a big hit, with visitors taking in the artwork on show and enjoying a cup of tea with a slice of home-made cake.  Thank you for coming (if you came) and for all your great feedback.  For those of you who took work away with you, I hope you like it.  If you missed it today, why not come along to the next one – details below.

New artwork on the way…

During the afternoon and into the evening I produced a new small-scale artwork, to be released shortly, entitled ‘I do love you’, which leads on from the immensely popular ‘I just love you’, due to show at the Mall Galleries in London at the end of October.  The use of text has been a recurring tool in my artistic arsenal and I continue to develop it, with recent inspiration from Tate Liverpool’s current exhibition that includes collaborative work with Carol Ann Duffy, poet laureate and other text-based artworks from artists such as Tracy Emin, Jenny Holzer, Laurence Weiner and Gillian Wearing.  A great exhibition, brilliantly curated.  Go to the Tate website…

Next Open Studio:  Weds 6th October    2pm-8pm

I love my artwork. It has gone straight up on my bedroom wall and looks amazing. I love having a unique piece of art in my flat. No more Ikea prints for me! Thanks ever so much for the tea and cake, keep up the good work.
