Photos from the Candid Art Mixed Media Show

The show finished yesterday, and was really well turned out. I went to the private view last Thursday and was pleased with the amount of people who were appreciating my work! 
So here are some snaps of the show:

Im very happy that i actually managed to reach my show, as im now able to start learning to walk again! Woooo! So it was a big night for me on all counts!

I also want to thank my friends who came to support me on the night, both with my work and my walking, as well as driving me to the show! It ment a great deal guys!

So thanks to Brenda, Nichola and Chantelle for the laughs! And thank you to Patrick for 'making an effort' and driving me!

If you managed to see the show, what did you think? There was some funky work there, deffo a topic for discussion! 

You can now see the work over on my website!

Made in Peckham Project Revealed

As mentioned earlier, I have been working on a project to produce textile designs for various places in Peckham, London. Now that degree show time is upon us, Carolina has now finished putting the project together and revealed all on a website! 

This is the fabric created using the illustrations I created for the project, a lovely patchwork design!

You can see the other designs, and more info on the project on the website HERE.
I also think the fabrics are available to buy, as well as being shown at Carolina's MA Degree show which is being shown at Central St. Martins 21st-24th June. 

Leg permitting, I hope to make the show to see my fabric in the flesh, as well as hopefully buy one for my portfolio!

Exhibition Invites

Dont you just love when the postman brings you a mystery package? 
I was delighted to open my jiffy bag this morning and see my invites for the Mixed Media show, and one of my pieces is featured on the back!

Check out my little snoopy dog!!
I think this show is going to be a real mix of artists, Ive googled a few and we have a fashion designer as well as a glass and ceramic artist! Cant wait!

Internship At Creative Review

Im very excited at the moment as I have got the opportunity to do an Internship at Creative Review! I had found out a few weeks ago and was extremely excited, especially since I also have my Candid Arts show in a few weeks, however when I ended up housebound last week I was devastated that I may have to give up such a great opportunity. 
But I'm very happy that Paul (the creative directer) is allowing me to work from home for the moment, with my first brief coming in this morning!! Woooo for the internet and creative review!!

Im hoping to start physio in a week or so, and now I'm desperate to start walking again so that I can visit the Creative Review offices!! 

For now, I start 'brain-storming' on my first brief . . . .

How Cool is this???

I saw this on the Creative Review Blog yesterday and just felt the need to share it!!
