Tuesday March 1st - Nottingham International Womens Festival -
I'll be collaborating with Debbie Bryan Studio and Shop on a number of charity events. Including a charity fundraiser where we are launching a new range of fine art prints based on the fashion lady murals I have painted on the walls of the shop and inviting people to name the ladies.
Thurs March 24th - as part of the Womens Festival I'll be running a one off Life Drawing class at Debbie Bryan Studio and Shop. The theme is Femme Fatales and I'll be teaching techniques to give your drawings added drama and vintage atmosphere.... with a little help from gorgeous model Jody Capuano. Dressing up is encouraged and drinks and nibbles will be provided - More info on times and how to buy tickets to follow soon!
More events to follow! ...
In other news .... I am now equipped with a brand new shiny Wacom tablet which I am making full use of when digitally colouring portraits and logos, I'll also be learning some fine art rendering techniques with it, great fun!
A big website update/redesign is planned for 2011, there was a hope that it'd be launched by now but my ambition has outweighed my web coding skills so the reigns have been handed to hubby for his superior technical skills (and patience levels!).
I'm currently in the process of discussing, or rather, plotting, with my Dr Sketchy Co-Host Scarlett Daggers aka Ellie as we plan to take our artistic wares around the country to various craft fairs and rockabilly events this year. Ellie has just launched her brand new company Red Anchor Emporium which specialises in vintage and retro inspired handbags. Ellie created my wedding handbag so I can highly recommend her!
Thats all for now folks, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Years!
