What?!?!?...more new work!!!

Gosh...even more new work to post, I do feel like I've been busy!
These little critters are on their way to Munich, Germany for the 'Artistic Toys' exhibition at Galerie Handwerk. I've taken part in this Christmas exhibition for the past three years now and love being invited back. It's a fab gallery and the theme is left as open as that so we are all free to come up with whatever it is we might like. I try each year to make something new and exciting for myself and this year has certainly been the most fun. I doubt many of us will be in Munich this Christmas so here's a peek at what I've sent...

Some new things!!!

Wow! It's just non stop crazy at the moment and as usual I'm thoroughly behind on everything...including posting anything on here! I've been making new work for several exhibitions and it's been great to take a break from the birds, as lovely as they are!

The first project was for 20:21 Visual Art gallery in Scunthorpe, 'Tales from the Sock Drawer' called upon the 9 artists taking part.... ( Claire Montgomerie, Donna Wilson, Kate Toms, Lindsay Marsden ( The Black Rabbit), Rebecca Shreeve (Quirkles), Lucy Turnner (Lucy Moose), Louise Evans ( Felt Mistress) and Anna Creighton).... to work their story around a chest of drawers.
My creatures turned their chest of drawers into a travelling circus...

Paul Smith

I had an incredibly exciting request from Paul Smith's head office, to borrow my birds to feature in their Spring/Summer 2011 Press Day last week. Here is a look at how they were displayed...
