Open Studio Success

The two weeks are now over. And what a couple of weeks! The first couple of days, the weather wasn't on our side...but that didn't deter us! We greeted our visitors with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits and a seat in the sun (when it was out!).
We had, in the end, a high footfall of visitors. And despite bad finiancial times, buyers were, well, buying! I sold quite a few of my Fractured pieces and also a floral commission, which I have managed to complete on the second week. Greeting cards sold very well too as well as a new addition to my portfolio, lino prints.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and am completely exhausted!

Surrey Open Studios

On the 10th of June for 2 weeks I will be taking part in the 10th Anniversary of Surrey Open Studios. This gives the general public a chance to view artists at work in their own studios and purchase art direct from them.
I am sharing the studio with 4 other artists, Verity Darby, Hannah Gibson, Laura Bond and Peter Darby.
The address is 5 Torland Drive, Oxshott, Surrey KT22 0SA.  There will be refreshments and a good variety of work being shown and created. Glassware, pyrography, sculpture, greeting cards, lino prints and paintings. Alot to see and a great day out!

Open dates and times are as follows:- Thursday 10th June 11am- 5pm and evening 6-8.30pm. Friday 11th to Sunday 13th 11am- 5pm, and the same times again from 17th-20th June.
I hope you can make it!
