I am excited to be taking part in Belper's art festival this year by holding a stall at the art trail.
Belper Arts Trail is an artist led event intended to promote and offer a platform for local artists to grow individually and as a community. In its 4th year it is held across 55 venues with over 130 artists exhibiting. The Trail will take place this bank holiday weekend (Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May 2017) across Belper, Derbyshire 10:30am-4:30pm each day.
I have been painting a selection of small works for the trail over the last few weeks, often working on several pieces at a time moving freely from one painting to another. I have felt inspired by bright colours and fast moving shapes - happy and playful memories with my children. Fairground rides and candy floss.
Alongside these smaller paintings, I will have with me a selection of my larger works and a series of handmade greeting cards. I am nervous but it feels good to be stepping out there and exhibiting my work again - this being the first show I have taken part in since having Bear 4 years ago.
My stall will be situated in the Methodist Church. I hope to see you there!
