Work bound for Scotland.....

I've been working on some new sketches and monoprints this week, using them as the basis for these petite purses. 

They are bound for Scotland as part of an order of stock for The Vessel.
A sweet little gallery/shop in Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, full of gorgeous individually crafted goodness. It's run by Claire Maxtone who is a very talented lady herself and produces some exquisite jewellery. Click on her name for a link to see her work. She also has a shop on etsy which is where/how she first found and contacted me, technology hey?!

I am really enjoying this new creativity and style I've found since moving to the seaside! Such great light here, it seems to fuel that gray matter in to life! 
My work is getting where I've wanted it to be for some time now, it still has a way to go and it's good to be experimenting and sampling to continue to improve and push it further, different media, different ideas, I just need to mange the time side now! 

Well Easter is nearly here and although there is obviously a more serious side to it, it's lovely to have time for chocolate egg indulgence and a hot cross bun or two!
