Working very hard at the moment on my second collection...have spent the afternoon putting some inspiration images together...while I was doing some organizing of files on the computer, yet again trying to do a million things at the same time.
some of these I just absolutely love, and they kind of represent my mood at the moment.

this is where I have gone to

so busy...wish I had more time to blog
my mr man is helping me be more productive

creative surrondings

Spent the last 2 Thursdays In different openings around the east end.Thursday evening was spent doing icy trekking with my other half around Brick lane, Hoxton.

First went to stolen space that always seem to have really good openings, they also always seem to have nice alcoholic juices!!

Last night they where exhibiting a feast for my eyes-a mixture of collage and great graphics for an exhibition titled “never judge”, a little bit more info from the preview Email-

…”Stolen Space in association with Penguin Books plan to celebrate the art of the book cover
with a show entitled ' Never Judge?’
For this exhibition we will be filling the gallery with original book covers exclusively created for this show
by our favorite artists from around the world, there will also by gyclée prints available from some of the pieces
created. The show promises to be a visual feast working in conjunction with Penguin Books and their upcoming
Penguin Essentials project”

The second place we went to was a Xmas feast held in a great gallery/shop in Hoxton called KK outlet which was holding a special evening for the Dutch Santa Claus, who arrives at the beginning of December…which is a lot of fun for the kids(big ones as well), the seemed to be a problem with the electricity in the place(ie not working), but that just made the whole thing more magical, and together with a few glasses of wine, chocolate and some xmas songs the evening turned out to be a perfect start for my Xmas celebrations!!

Last but not least 2 weeks ago went to open studio’s evening at Netil house, a huge industrial building turned into creative spaces in London fields not far from home , found this really nice Jewelry designer-Dynasty, loved her Butterfly trade mark, me thinks ‘XMAS’ gift!!
