A little belated, but it's been a busy time and I'm playing catch-up! Medway Open Studios which took place mid July over two weekends was a great opportunity for me to showcase my new fungus sculptures, as well as my new range of cat greetings cards based on my ink paintings.
My greetings cards sold really well and I had some lovely responses to my new woodland display, which I trialled in my studio for the first time: a way of tying together my sculpture work with my British Wildlife range of greetings cards.
I always love chatting with people about art - Open Studios can be a rather strange experience, as even though people have come to see your studios, and there are signs everywhere, they need to be encouraged into your room... I can quite understand how it feels odd just walking into a room with an artist sitting in the corner, so I do my best to encourage people in!
