New creations

I have been working on lots of different items recently in order to try and build up my stock for forthcoming art & craft fairs over the summer (wet as it is right now). I have not yet uploaded any of these items to any web-sites, or onto my Etsy shop, as I want to keep them exclusively for exhibitions. However, I thought I'd at least take some pics to show you what I've been working on, as it's been a while since I posted on here.

These two little trinket boxes are ready for selling and will be added to my collection next month at the Burton Constable Country Fair, along with the following new creations:

I am working on 3 of these magnetic shopping pads, but  the third one only has a base coat on at the moment so I thought I would leave that one out of the shot.

As you can see with these decorated A6 sized note-books, I appear to have developed a style of almost mosaic-like qualities! I am a bit obsessed with dots and circles actually, and often incorporate them in my abstract paintings - these particular decorations have been applied using a metallic acrylic craft paint. I love the 3D effect they have.

Alongside these, I have been working on a background painting (now complete, ready for posting) as part of a collaboration piece between myself and fellow rogue gene collective artist, Kosana Marton.  Also, I have made a start on painting a paper cup ready for an exhibition to be held over the next couple of months. No more details on that as yet - I need to experiment with a few to begin with, I may enter more than one if allowed and will need to decide which design works best. The idea is to decorate a paper cup in any way you like, but to retain the basic shape, i.e. it needs to still be recognisable as a paper cup. It sounded like a fun idea so I thought I'd join in!


  1. Oooh, those notebooks are fantastic ... and I particularily like the small 'skyline' painting. Good luck with the exhibitions. :)

  2. Thanks, Andrea. The skyline is representative of India.:)


Please comment on any aspect of my posts - it's always nice to know when someone has taken the time to actually read my blog, so it matters little what you say, it's just good to hear from you!
