Letterpress and Frames.



My friend Caren dropped around a short time back for a tea drinking session and some art talk. Besides being on the receiving end of much wisdom and advice for my exhibition she also gifted me some of her beautiful letterpress work. For a few days I had it sitting on top of my work, really loving the way the print quality, font and slightly yellowed paper looked against the red. Then I had to move this frame I'd painted in black chalkboard and for lack of any more space put it on top of the print. Anyway I've b Pretty excited I have to say to be getting into Caren's back yard letter press print studio. 


As for the rest of these frames, I love them but I doubt they'll make it into this exhibition. They might have to wait for the next.










Three Birds and A Little Boy.


Over the last few months I've been dropping into the Nishi centre to see Jodie Cunningham and her gorgeous studio space at Three Birds and a little Boy - a pop up shop at the new eco friendly designer Hotel Hotel. Decorated by Netti of April's Caravan the pop up is retro heaven. I take my lap top in and pretend I am getting some work done though really I just like being surrounded by all the creativity. And vintage frocks. And pink plastic flamingoes flying amongst fairy lights.
