I’ve just discovered three business cards stuffed into my diary. I picked them up back in March at an art market at Paintworks in Bristol.
My friend Jenni Stone, a surface pattern designer, was selling her wares there, so I went along to show my support. Don’t you just adore this cushion? I love the way the warm chocolate brown colour keeps the butterfly print from becoming overly girly.
I also discovered a few fab artists I thought I’d share with you here…
Kerry Tremlett: I fell heads over heels for with this painting, ‘Jug of blossom with lemons’, and wasn’t at all surprise to find that it sold really quickly.
Graham Williams: Although I think his seascapes are beautiful, what I really like is the way Graham presents them on old board, giving each picture a rough edge that really adds interest.
Imogen Harvey Lewis: What’s not to love about these pen and ink drawings? The illustrator also transforms her images into fabric dolls, which I may well have to buy for my godson one of these days soon.
I wish I had more money to buy art, not to mention more wall space. But there’s nothing to stop me looking and dreaming, right?
