My new work

I was Featured Artist in 14 The Gallery last month with lots of new work on display. I have framed some of my small tiles in various colours which look really special.

The Royal Society of British Artists

Last week whilst in London, I visited the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2013 held at the Mall Galleries. I was particularly interested in viewing the work by pen and ink artist Sarah Woolfenden as she was exhibiting two pieces. More of her work can be found in the co-operative galleries in North Devon, www.14thegallery.co.uk and www.artcoopatg39.co.uk

Whilst at the Exhibition, I was fortunate to enjoy a talk about ‘sketchbooks’ by the renowned artists Nick Tidman and Alfred Daniels.

New nuno felt scarves

Over the last week or so I have been busy working on my secondary artwork, making new designs of my nuno felt scarves and wraps. Images and details about these can be seen on my sister website http://www.feltnbeads.co.uk/gallery_320848.html I generally use a silk base with the bright colourful and soft merino wool for the felting.

Anita Swegler Workshop

A wonderful learning curve at a 2 day workshop from visiting tutor at Mango Beads, Barnstaple. Such inspirational work from Anita was displayed and demonstrated …. maybe one day I can aspire to lampwork beads with some of the details & quality that she taught to the group.

Portiragnes, Languedoc

Here for a few more weeks and loving the bright colours of the sky, the sea, the area….a real artists’ palette! If only I could paint! However, I do include these fantastic colours in my fused glass art.
