It's become increasingly concerning to me that I have let this blog sit unattended for the best part of 8 months. I don't have any excuse for it really, so I'm going to wipe the metaphorical slate clean and start again with an update of what's happened to me throughout the month of October, because it's been pretty exciting.

My exhibition of Cyanotype Prints opened at The Art House, in Southampton on Tuesday 2nd of October. The exhibition ran until the 28th of October and I was lucky enough to sell three original prints! 

The Art House is a truly inspiring place, "Community run, for love and not for profit, we provide a place which is out of the ordinary, a safe place, a place where art can flourish and be shared."

The Art House Crew are so lovely and welcoming, if you're ever in the Southampton area and have 5 minutes to pop in for a cup of tea or a spot of lunch, I'd definitely recommend it.

As well as my original prints being displayed, the lovely people at The Art House were also kind enough to stock a range of my printed tote bags and greetings cards. 

I also got the chance to exhibit and sell my work at DIY Southampton 8 which is a regular event held at Planet Sounds in Southampton. It was a fantastic day (as always) and a great opportunity to not only sell some of my work but also network with other designers and makers. The next DIY will hopefully be held next summer, and I'm definitely hoping to return! 

Coming Up Next Month...

I am currently sat in a Travelodge in Gatwick ahead of disappearing to Rome for a couple of days to celebrate my 23rd Birthday. When I get back, my aim is to launch my original prints and bags for sale online in preparation for Christmas
I've also got a stall at "The Alternative Christmas Market" being held at St Michael's Church in Bournemouth on Saturday 24th November, it runs from 10am - 3pm and admission is free, so if you're in the area and fancy doing some Christmas Shopping then please do come along!
