I've been busy, developing ideas and making,and it's hard to believe how far I've come: from having no work shown to now having a website, selling my artwork online and in a few local locations - at Ninian, in Lerwick, and at the Hoswick Visitor Centre - and I'm exhibiting year round in a local cafe, The Olive Tree.
Some highlights include the Shetland Arts and Craft Fair in November. This was a big deal for me, because as well as being really enjoyable it was my first anniversary of selling my artwork!
In 2015 I decided to have a small stall and try out some of my ideas on the public. This was the first time I had ever shown any work, so to try and sell it as well was quite nerve wracking. However the response was great - I was really encouraged and haven't stopped making since.
This year, I decided to try a bigger stall. at 5m x 3m. Building a stall this big and having the work to fill it was a challenge, but thankfully the risk paid off! The weekend was a huge success.
Thank you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here's to more art in 2017!
