Private view photos!

It was the private view of the exhibition I'm in yesterday, "Curiouser and Curiouser", complete with Mad Hatter's tea party! (If you missed it the exhibition runs until Wednesday so you still have time to catch it!) It all went really well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. There were even a few sales which is brilliant!
Here is the flamingo cake I made for the tea party.
"How Doth the Little Crocodile."
Me and my work!
My lino wall.

My collage wall.
Eileen Kwan and her beautiful original pencil drawings.
Amber Cooper-Davies's lovely paper cuts.
Alex Moore's bold graphic prints.
Andrew Baker's fab typographic poster.
Cathy Kwan's psychedelic tea party.
Emma Block's delicate nostalgic Alice.
Martin Ursell's colourful comic book approach to the Jabberwocky.
The window display Eileen and I put together with contributions from most of the artists exhibiting!
And finally the cake being cut!
There are tonnes more wonderful artists in the show (too many to put in this post!) but if you'd like to see them, and more of the works here. Please pop in to the Curious Duke Gallery before the 30th of Jan and take a look. All work is for sale!

Only a week to go! Curiouser and Curiouser at the Curious Duke.

Time has flown by and it's only a week until the start of the exhibition I'm in. It's very exciting and, based on all the work of the other artists that I've seen, it looks like it's going to be wonderful!

Here are two images I've done (one you've already seen before...) based on "Sylvie and Bruno go to Dogland" and modelled on the beautiful Alfie and Billy! 

 If you would like to visit the exhibition (and I really hope you do!) it runs from the 24th of January until the 30th. It is on at the Curious Duke Gallery and there is a private view on the evening of the 24th, with Mad Hatter's tea party and talk from Mark Richards from the lovely Lewis Carroll society.

For more details on the exhibition you can look at the website or RSVP at the Facebook event page.

More artwork previews to come over the week...

Forty Hall.

"So Abi, you've kind of been MIA for a while, didn't you say you were going to update every week?"

Well, yes, I did say that and now the New Year is here (and I do hope you all had wonderful festive times over Christmas and New Year) I fully intend to carry that on. Sadly, I've had a few things to deal with recently which have meant this blog has fallen a bit by the wayside.

On a more exciting note I've been working on some pictures for Forty Hall and Estate. The images are based on a poem by the lovely Frances Cherry. They are aimed at nursery aged children showing them the wonders of Forty Hall before they visit. 

If you're ever in the area, why not drop by Forty Hall and take a look?
