A week in photographs

Hello! So I've decided that I'm going to do a few more short(ish) posts in between my more labour intensive ones. I take hundreds of pictures on my phone each week which mostly just languish on my computer or, if they're lucky, make it onto my Instagram so it would be nice if they got used in a more useful way.  The past week has been particularly busy and visually enticing, I hung the exhibition at The Glorious Art House last weekend with my mum. Whilst I was in Exeter I visited RAMM, which I wholeheartedly recommend if only for the wonderful rose pink walls. My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentines late with a lazy pancake morning on Shrove Tuesday. I'm not much of a pancake fan but I made American style ones with added cinnamon and they were fluffy perfection! I spent the rest of the week painting and beginning a large scale embroidery I am making for an exhibition alongside my brother and mumma coming up in April (more on that at a later date!) The week was rounded off with a visit to the Eden Project yesterday for The West Country Folklore Symposium that I mentioned in my last post.

I mentioned in the last post that I'd post a few photographs from our exhibition at The Glorious Art House so it's quite heavy on pictures from there. The exhibition is on until Thursday, so there's still plenty of time to visit.

In other news the much anticipated (by me at least) new album, God's Hand, by Hot sugar leaked this week, it's SO good. Probably the greatest ever. You can get it here and check out all his other amazing stuff here. He's been getting so much good press lately due to Broad City sampling some his bits on their second season, it's always good to see someone get the success they're due!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. I so wish I was down your way so I could see the exhibition, which looks AMAZING. But at least it's great to get a peek via these images. Definitely another eye-feast of a post - I always come away feeling like I'm invigorated by colour and creative dynamism.

  2. This looks so good, I wish I was down that way to see it, I love all the pieces, so colourful and happy!! Perfect, you look amazing doll xx

  3. I checked out Hot Sugar and by chance played Your Nails Look So Pretty while I was scrolling through this post - awesome combination! Your show looks fantastic. And you are art yourself. Your style and art, and your mum's art too, inspire me.

  4. I love the colours in your posts and your instagram photos - they are delicious eye candy! I would have loved to see that exhibit in person - you and your Mum make wonderful stuff.
