What "Just a Card" Means to Me

    'If everyone who'd complimented my beautiful gallery had bought JUST A CARD we'd still be open'   For over a year now I've had work on display and for sale at Artologie in the West Sussex village of Cuckfield. In this time I have become friends with the owner, celebrated sales of my work that came out of the clear blue (I wasn't involved till it was over), and learned second-hand something about running an independent high street shop in an online era. Add those experiences to the hours of time and pockets of money I have spent organising, running, and participating in my own...

Over the last five years Fabrica's name has popped up on a regular basis as other artists recommended them to me for events, exhibitions, and artist opportunities in the Brighton area. So as soon as I saw the Crowdfunding page I knew I wanted to be involved ... even though I have yet to actually make it through the door yet. (Sometimes honesty can be so embarrassing. On the plus side, this is something I plan to change...

The Passion Behind My Latest Project

The Passion Behind My Latest Project

Reading around the subject for my upcoming exhibition project Working title: "Asking the Moon"   Easter has come and gone, bluebells are in bloom and I've planted out the strawberries. So despite the occasional chill wind off the North Sea here in England, I am hopeful that warmer temperatures are on their way. In the meantime, I am busy laying the groundwork for a major naïve art exhibition to feature work by approximately 40 contemporary naïve artists (20 from the UK and 20 from Croatia) across a range of media and intended to tour across the UK and Croatia, possibly...
