Visible Friends - A secret club

I'm really excited to be showing a new piece 'A Winter Adventure' in 'Visible Friends' organised by A secret club, featuring work by 27 artists, which you can read about below.

"It's time for some art to brighten up your winter days!

We're taking over an empty shop and are opening a pop-up gallery for the show "Visible Friends" in which 27 artists of extraordinary calibre have travelled back in time to share their childhood memories of dolls and action figures.

Entry is free and we are open from 10.00AM to 5.30 PM every day from 7th to 13th December in Klostergade 68 in Aarhus, Denmark.

All work is for sale and on the opening weekend, a secret club also sells other work from the participating artists in their mini-desiger's/artist's market.

Please note that it is cash only."

A secret club will be showing sneak peeks on their Facebook - also keep an eye on their website and Twitter. If you follow my Etsy, I'll be showing the 'A Winter Adventure' Paper Doll original embroidery also with some paper dolls to buy.

My Friend's House

LOIS got a mention on My Friend's House, along with Elise Menghini, Garudio Studiage, Pen & Gravy and myself. Some nice words about my work. I'm making a set of 5 postcards of embroidered South London scenes for the £3 Christmas Bazaar which Nest Gallery will be taking part in, along with selling zines and some stamped celadon ceramic coasters. LOIS has a whole range of lovely things which I know you want to buy for Christmas (secretly for yourself) so go over, show your support and everyone's happy.

Mudlarking in Greenwich

Went mudlarking last weekend - found mainly a lot of blue patterned pieces, a transfer face and the second from the top has a nice pattern on but I've got no idea when it's from. Think these patterned pieces will inspire an embroidery.

Christmas Cards...

Bonfire Night is over, so I think it's almost appropriate to mention C********. I'm selling packs of four cards on my Etsy, left blank for your own message. The Christmas Tree is a new design for this year. If you're outside of the UK and want to order some cards, drop me an email at and we can sort something out. Alternatively, if you are a bit shy to ask me, go to LOIS in Peckham as they have my cards, tote and new cut-out paper doll in stock.
