Enjoying comments from people following my blog and wanted to mention some other artists whose work you might enjoy. Nicola Richards and I have shared Open Studios for a number of years. Her ceramics are very tactile, collectable pieces and her recently designed garden pots are original, frost-proof plant pots for the special people, places and plants in your life. You can buy Nicola’s work at her Garden Studio in Leamington Spa, or through some of the Galleries listed on her website.
Pauline Burbidge is one of the most exciting Quilt Artists or our time and her work is collected by many Public Art Galleries around the UK and in the USA. Based in Allanton, Berwickshire and my lovely neighbour for the last couple of weeks, you can be sure that Pauline will give you a huge welcome if you come to her Open Studios this year.
Elaine Isaacs, Kenilworth Painter and one of my life-long friends, produces beautiful original paintings at very affordable prices, across a wide variety of subjects. Elaine is as enthusiastic about the smallest priced piece as she is about some of her stunning large paintings, and always happy to consider commissions.
I have to mention Scott Robertson, the oil painter I met in Berwick the other day. Such an engaging artist who genuinely enjoys talking to visitors in his Gallery and explaining his work with absolutely no pressure to buy. When I have saved up the money, the oil painting describing the early evening light at Spittal will be on my wall in 2017! And me? Working on drawing figures and wanted to show you my latest acrylics on paper work featuring two ladies walking in the woods.
