The Preview Review

The preview night of the Ouseburn Open Studios at Mushroom Works went fandabeedozee.

People turned out in their hundreds to look around the studios and meet the artists inside and hundreds of 20x20s flew off the walls in just two hours. I think I saw around half of mine in the queue to the till. Exciting!



It's very flattering watching customers take my work off the wall and lovely to meet people and answer their questions. I tried to earwig on a couple's discussion on which 20x20s to buy where my Emperor Dragonfly was one of the contenders, but my Batfink super-sonic sonar radar was on the blink. They did buy it in the end though, and my Queen Bee.

A very good night.

If you'd like to come along, the Mushroom Works will be open 10am-6pm Saturday and Sunday too, get yourself down! http://www.ouseburnopenstudios.org/venues/mushroom-works


 

Ouseburn Open Studios 2013- The Preview

It's tonight!

This weekend, participating venues in this year's Ouseburn Open Studios will throw open their doors and allow all you lucky people in to come see artists, designers and makers in their studios. Ask questions, see demonstrations, commission work, have a nosy and drink wine whilst you do.

The Mushroom Works is hosting its usual exclusive 20x20 sale of work - little pieces of artwork created especially for the occasion, measuring around 20cm square and selling for just £20. I know it seems too good to be true, but it's for real! 20x20s make brilliant christmas presents too.

I have work for sale in the 20x20s - black and white illustrations, coloured Scandinavian-style patterns and my favourite character - Hipster Owl - is making his third annual appearance.

Ouseburn Open Studios 2013

Busy, busy!

The annual Ouseburn Open Studios event is almost here! From the 22nd November,  you can come to participating cultural venues in the region to see artists in our natural habitat,  see where we work, commission artwork, ask questions and have a chat over a drink and cake.

I've spent the last few weeks immersed in producing work for the exclusive 20x20 sale of work, only at the Mushroom Works. Buy specially-created work measuring about 20cm square for only £20! I know it seems to good to be true, which is why it's so popular!  20x20s make brilliantly and original gifts, particularly with Christmas approaching.

Here's a peek at some of mine..
