Fun A Day Exhibition

Fun Fun Fun!  

During the month of January I took part in Fun A Day, where you do something fun every day.   I wanted to explore and play with an idea with no defined outcome to see where it takes me. Adapting the ‘Five Currant Buns’ nursery rhyme as a starting point.  I went on a journey and did some sketches of bakers shops, ink drawings, illustrations, patterns and then focused on creating a range of paper cuts of local shop fronts and all cool things they sell.  I love local independent shops on the high street.  

The exhibition opens on Friday 13th April at 7pm, and is on over the Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 7pm at Gallery space, 4th floor, WASPS Studios, Meadow Mill, Dundee, DD1 5BY.   The exhibition will have an eclectic mix of projects that happened in January.

A few of the things I created during Fun A Day will be developed in the future, I can imagine a range of illustrations to a 5 Dundee Cakes in the bakers shop counting book. Doing the paper cuts allowed me to think about the positive and negative space and keep designs quite simple.  I’ve been playing with these by adding colour and texture since January.  Here are some test pieces

Some of my pieces will be for sale, please contact me directly or call/text 07841423335.

Buzzing Southbank

There was so much going on in Southbank in London at the weekend – tunes, exhibitions, free runners, skateboarders, tasty food, graffiti, street performers………..

Tasty food at the market behind the Royal Festival Hall where I had lovely Morrocan food – it was hard to choose which stall as there was so many tasty delights.

Lots of colourful creative beach huts by different artists from holiday snaps, stylish swim wear to shell art and of course I liked the striped one.
and lots of summertime words around with a manmade beach with buckets and spades.

Great to see free exhibition as you walk along, The Lion & Unicorn was interesting created by aritst Gitta Gschwendtner working with refugees to create creative writing and paper aeroplanes that look like a flock of birds.

Dj Mr Scruff was playing his funky tunes at the Bulmers Cider Garden

Next time I’m there I’m going to catch the Tracey Emin exhibition at the Hayward
