Hello April!!


Gosh its April already!! I have been so busy, moving into Jill Shaddocks studio. It nice and bright and can’t wait to get started on my new product!

My Solo Show at Yellowstone Art Boutique, Trentham Estate has started and it is on until the 25th May. The opening of the show was also Yellowstone Art Boutiques 1st Birthday Party, it was really special! Was so happy that Hannah Stoney chose me and my work to help to celebrate this special event.

My nana and grandad popped in to look at it too.

I loved making the work for my solo show as I had so many ideas that I wanted to do and also I was able to do loads of different sizes and shapes. My favourite is the long cream ladies walking with the dogs.

Its really nice to have an exhibition so close to home as my milk customers are able to see my work and what I do. They are all really supportive. And I have even been in the local paper with it.
