Speaking of Libertys these little gems popped up in my inbox! Liberty has had many new collaborations recently and this one with Nike works brilliantly. I feel it's along the same lines as the pieces that I created, using their fabric in an unusual way!
I have just sent these pieces down to London, I've been lucky to have them shown at the BOXPARK in Shoreditch.
BOXPARK is the world's first Pop Up shopping mall located in the heart of East London - Shoreditch. My work will be shown from the 29th September - 3rd of October, so if you're going to around London please stop by and have a look.
I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in the competition with Somewhereto_ John Lewis Oxford Street. My painting 'My Week with Marilyn' which is Acrylic on Canvas was shown in the Brasserie of John Lewis for 10 days between the 22nd - 31st of July.
I'm so pleased to say that someone contacted me through my website who wanted to buy the painting.
So here is 'Marilyn' all wrapped up and ready to go! It's always so strange when I sell a painting and knowing that this is probably the last time I ever see it in person (photos never properly do the paintings justice), but hoping that she enjoys her new home!
I recently have been working with a charity somewhereto_ who have been helping me find spaces to exhibit and events that I can participate with. In June they held a competition in which 10 winners would have their work shown in the John Lewis on Oxford Street throughout July. I was fortunate enough to be one of these winners, so on the 27th of July I was able to go down and see my piece.
It started with an early to London and after a wrong turn on Oxford Street, I eventually found John Lewis and my piece.
I was pleased with how much my painting stood out from the wall and it was easily noticeable from the escalator. The piece in this exhibition is titled ‘My Week with Marilyn’ it is inspired by the film of the same name, I found the film so beautiful and amazing how Michelle Williams was able to completely inhabit the time and space of Marilyn Monroe while she was filming ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ in England. The painting captures a timeless moment of Marilyn/Michelle.
I am hoping that this will be my first of many shows in London and I am looking forward to the new opportunites that are coming my way.
