This is a long overdue birthday week catch up from me, a few weeks late but here is a quick catchup.
I popped down to Suffolk to do some sketchbook work. The weather was perfect for having a stroll around the countryside gathering inspiration for new pieces!
I then judged the Weston Beamor prize at New Designers. Any prospective art student should go and visit the show every year. Art schools from across the UK get together to showcase the very best their students have to offer. It was very inspiring to see such a high standard of work and the students so enthusiastic about the future. Very inspiring (I popped back on the weekend with kids, it was that brilliant). We awarded Hamish Dobbie from Glasgow school of Art first prize.
Of the course soon it was the BIG day. Turning *cough* I took the day off work and went cycling in Kent with Denise, then headed to the glorious Goring Hotel for dinner with friends in one of their fantastic private rooms. Lucky me!
To end the week, we had a big party for my birthday down in Suffolk. A lovely blog post will be up soon.
Oh and I must mention our lovely new window display at our boutique .
