the house by the woods
I really enjoyed last nights opening of the group show in the custom house gallerys winter exhibition .
As you may know I had my solo show there this past may and it has the loveliest gallery staff.
I exhibited a new piece of work ." I have no relative but the universal mother, Nature : I will seek her breast and ask for repose"
My dear friend and collaborator artist Cendrine Rovini new solo show opened last night in Paris ! I wish I could visit it in person , but I take this oppurtunity to wish her the best of luck as I know how crazy hard she has worked on this past year .
Congratulations Cendrine !

vintage dolls faces made into broaches
....I was given these lovely dolls faces by a retired art teacher nun years ago , they used to make them into cloth dolls at school.
A lot of people recognise the dolls faces from as far back as the 1940's .....I would love to know where they were made , they are pressed from buckram and have transfered features, I just embellish them and put them in a sort of space, with hair and bits and pieces !
I love them , I hope others will too :)
Just some of the things I have made for my market stall, are alchemy upcycled cardigans, handmade hats and jewellery made from assorted vintage pieces also my artists books will be available to buy.
TWO MORE MARKETS
****saturday the 17th and friday the 23rd of december ****
then a break till march.
I am looking forward to having time to draw ....so many ideas to work on .
how beautiful is this drawing the silver bridge by nura in 1937 ?
