This summer makes me feel so good.

I'm so so pleased, I can't believe how motivated and inspired by everything and everyone. Thank you. I found out today that I sold all three of my Babahog pieces. I'm overwhelmed! Well done to Jess for selling one of hers too. Life is peachy.

Bits and bobs from summer 2009

Here are just a few other images I have done in my spare time... but there are more to come :) Its really nice to be producing without a client brief sometimes, so I feel all refreshed again when the final year of my degree begins.

Episode One Exhibition @ The Chelston Gallery
14th August 2009 - The Private View

Episode One is the Fine Art debut of three exciting local artists; Arianne Dubash, Tori Elliott and Sarah Lucy Baker. Having grown up in Devon, they met while studying Fine Art and Photography at Teign School, Kingsteignton. After taking time away to study and further develop their practice in a range of artistic disciplines ranging from Scenic Painting to Illustration, they have decided to stage a collaborative exhibition marking the establishment of professional artistic identity within the industry.

A celebration of their unique styles and enquiring approach to Fine Art, Episode One shows the Artists’ intention and commitment to develop their individual practices as well as giving an exciting glimpse of new promising excellence. This exhibition is the first step in three artistic careers which promise to push the boundaries of contemporary art.

So, myself and two of my creative friends, Arianne Dubash and Sarah Lucy Baker decided to collaborate and produce our debut exhibition, to experience the real creative industry and take our first steps into the big wide world.

Below are the pieces I submitted for the Exhibition, we decided to feature work that suggested our character and have personal influence, and which best suited our styles; as Episode One was our first step.

I decided to express my love of Devon, and using the repetition of the houses that I adored as a child, their pattern, and the landscapes which I call home.
