A busy week..


There have been a number of interesting developments over the last week. 

Zatista is a US based website selling original art and limited edition prints. I've not heard of it myself but OneKingsLane is a premier US home decor site. 

"We are thrilled to announce that Zatista will be doing a curated event with One King's Lane, the premier e-commerce site for home decor, fashion and accessories.

A special collection from Zatista has been selected to be offered for sale on One King's Lane from 30th March to Aprilt 15th For the duration of the event we will be placing the selected works on hold on Zatista so that they are exclusively offered to the One King's Lane audience.

The even better news is that your work has been chosen by the board of curators to be part of the collection! This opportunity provides incredible exposure to millions of potential buyers." 

So I have got to be pleased that three of my works have been selected from among many thousands on the Zatista website. 

Alice James Books
A couple of days ago I was approached by Alice James Books, a nonprofit poetry press based in the US, to inquire about using one of your pieces on the cover of one of their forthcoming books. The piece they are interested in is:

"Urbanización 3"

They want to use it as a color picture for the cover of a book of poems, entitled Refuge/es by Michael Broek with a publication dates of May 2015. I hope to post pics of the final cover when I get a copy. 

New Mills Art Festival 2014
"Congratulations! We are delighted to inform you that your work has been selected for New Mills ArtsFEST 2014 Town Trail." 

I'm always pleased to find new and different locations to show my art, and the New Mills Art Festival appealed to me. From 17th May – 1st June more than 30 artists, from across the UK, display their work in unusual places and spaces, windows and pop-up venues across New Mills, as part of the annual festival. Turning the town into a gallery, the trail can be viewed at any time, and creates opportunities for residents and visitors going about their daily business to encounter a wide range of contemporary art

New Mills Arts, founded in 2012, is an artist-led initiative passionate about the promotion of contemporary art and raising the profile of New Mills.


Dean Gibson School, Kendal

I'm also pleased to announce the installation of the artwork below which was produced as a collaboration with Yr 5 at Dean Gibson Primary School Kendal. The work has been installed in their learning lab. (Site pictures to follow) 

The kids created the majority individual elements and I brought them all together into one digital work. I love the way kids don't have any boundaries.. they just do it ! The work is printed onto acrylic and the colours really zing. Well done kids ! 

And last but not least this week my work has been featured in the Artfinder "City Life" newsletter.

Many thanks to all the above for supporting for my work. I can't wait for next week ;)
