Fairy Rings and stuff.

I know that everyone has posted about Amy Ross a million times, but I just really love her work. I first came across her work at the ArtStroll in Atlanta (which I highly recommend). I just thought I'd share a few more images. The Fairy Ring piece has always reminded me of Time Capsule by Alison Gill (below), which I saw at my favorite exhibition of all time, Dream Machines at the Camden Arts Centre.

Shinique Smith

Oh dear, it's been rather a long time. I'm not sure where the past three months have gone. I am in the process of starting up a proper little business for myself. At the moment I'm designing a range of paper bridal bouquets with boutonnieres and various other things. So far I'm really pleased with the outcome, and excited about it. I'll be opening the shop soon!

In the mean time, I am only working three days a week (at my real job) at the moment, so I have much more time to be looking for cool stuff and putting it here for you to see. It's great to have more time to do my work and research. I feel like an artist again!

Today I have found this amazing mixed media installation by Shinique Smith. I am really into calligraphy at the moment (since buying this amazing book by Denise Lach), so I expect you'll be seeing a bit more of this kind of stuff over here from now on.

I'm pleased to be back!
