Another sunny day in London! I visited The Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House on The Strand a few days ago, and having never been before I have to say it is probably now one of my favourite galleries in London. The rooms are so lovely with beautiful door handles (like the one pictured above) and such amazing artwork from Ben Nicholson to Thomas Gainsborough. They have a lovely collection of Impressionist paintings too.
It really is a great place to visit, and if you happen to go on a Monday the tickets are half price!
A chilly walk in the park. Lovely.
I have been thinking about expanding my stock range and I’m quite excited about some new wares that I will be adding to my shop soon!
I have been selling my work at Elphick’s on Columbia Road since the end of 2009, I had just graduated from University and was probably feeling a bit lost when I heard from the lovely Sharon Elphick about stocking some of my prints that she had seen at my degree show that summer.
It is very sad to see Elphick’s close, and I really do think that Sharon is a major reason why I now do illustration full time. At a time when I wasn’t quite sure what to do next, having my work in such a amazing shop gave me so much confidence and encouragement to do what I love beyond University.
There is currently a 20% off sale for a few more weeks in store and online, a great way to get a bargain on some beautiful work from a lovely shop!
I really think I should put more on my blog in 2014…so this is the start…a picture of a sunny afternoon (unfortunately not today).
