Preview and update

This post is a bit late as the preview was last Friday, but heres a few pics of the artwork up in Quilliams Brother's Tea House at the preview on the 6th November:

 It was a really nice evening with a good turn out and I was dead chuffed to sell my framed Admiral's Pie illustration to Lynn Huggins-cooper from Forest House Press.
I forgot to actually take any photos so all these pics are courtesy of Helen Temperley and Clare Armstrong.
Oh and heres one of a few of the artists sat down over a cuppa:

Yep another classic pic of me looking like a rabbit caught in the headlights as per norm. Oh well! From left to right - Amy Dover (Feb), Ben Holland (May), Lucy Farfort (me, Jan) and Sarah Ingledew (Nov).

Really pleased to say that the calendars are selling really well and we've now even got some stocked in the Baltic Art Gallery shop - ooo get you!!
There are only about 100 calendars left now so if you want one you best get in quick ;-)

Contributor interview #6 Lucy Sunshine

What is your name and what do you create?
Hello, I’m Lucy Dyke aka Lucy Sunshine.

I make mixed media artwork with a focus on colour and simplicity. 

Where do you take your inspiration?
All things that provoke happiness in childhood; things that someone somewhere loves the most. 

Whats your favourite piece of work or a favourite project you’ve worked on?
My favourite piece is a framed section of a rainbow. It has just enough colour to brighten the gloomiest of days! 

What is your ultimate artistic goal?I'd love to take the plunge into a full time career in the art world but I'm not quite brave enough yet.

Where can people find out more about you? People can find me on
