A new chapter

So the university part of my career is over. After a short break from my blog I can tell you that I am now a fully graduated alumni of The Arts University, Bournemouth having completed the Fine Art Course with a First Class Honours. Graduation day was really great fun, although poignant, and I am already looking back at it fondly......
So now on to the new challenges! 
My new studio is coming along at a fast pace now and will be opening to the public on Saturday 31stAugust 2013. Keep your eyes out for more information and all the events that you can take part in during my launch event 'Thirty Days hath September'.
I am also pleased to announce two projects with the Society for All Artists: The first will be a demonstration as one of their Professional Associates at their ‘Its All About Art’ show at the Business Design Centre, Islington on Friday 26th July at 11.00. This will be my first national demonstration and I am looking forward to being showcased by them. The second project is a real sneak preview for you all as my work has been selected to be part of a book they are publishing called ‘101 Art Techniques’ – my first publication!

Thirty Days hath September
This is my big event for the year (as if my degree wasn’t enough) and will see me undertake a different art-related project every day for 30 days including the opening of the studio, collaborations with at least 8 other artists/makers/individuals, two exhibitions, numerous classes/workshops and a residency in Guernsey! Keep your eyes out for all the details as they will be heading your way very soon and please take part in the pre-thirty days competition below.

In preparation for Thirty Days, I will be running a competition from now until the studio opening day (31st August). It is really simple to enter, all you need to do is pass on my email address (see below) to as many friends, relations and colleagues as you can, inviting them to be part of my new mailing list. Ask them to send me an email, stating that they would like to be part of my mailing list and making sure that they QUOTE YOUR NAME. In return, the person who gets me the most new contacts will receive a FREE lesson at the studio for themselves and 3 others for a morning or afternoon session. There will also be 2 runner-up prizes of a signed limited edition Thirty Days screenprint. GOOD LUCK!
