It's Spring, we even have flowers in the garden! Yes I know it's still raining, but over Easter we did have a little bit of the bright stuff, a big yellow thing made an appearance in the sky and the birds were singing! Doesn't it make you feel better?
So what have you all been up to?
I've had some good news of my own - my daughter is having a baby! That's right I'm going to be Nanna Val in the autumn! Happy news. I'm also going back to college in late September to get myself some formal training whilst still running my business so it's going to be a very busy time. In view of that I am taking the opportunity to make plenty of stock now. That's why I've been so busy.
So what have I been up to? Well, I've found a new aluminium supplier and I've been experimenting with new designs and colourways. The new metal is much harder to work, but takes colour in an amazing way, really intense and vibrant. Rust is a texture/colour which I simply cannot pass by, particularly if the metal has been painted and is peeling and I have been exploring this effect in my newest work.
This brings me to my sale - there's 25% off everything on my website, but only until the end of April and this is to make way for some of my new collections. If you have a favourite piece, now would be a very good time to get it! There's free postage too! Tell your friends! Tell everyone!!
I've also got some fab new stockists, Created Gallery, The Hayrack Gallery, Number Four Gallery and finally Rostra Gallery which is brilliant news! Do check them out if they're in your area.
Finally some pictures of my new work, would love to have your feedback!
