One Year On....


So!! The time has come when I am gathering all the work I have been making over the last few weeks {ahem months}...and getting packed up and ready to depart tomorrow for the Exhibition. I am looking forward to it, and really excited about seeing all my new work out together...as a progression from last year's degree show, to now....One Year On. I am a bit nervous too :/

I finished my new pattern at last {above}, and am very pleased with it....I would quite like to do it in other colour ways to see how it 'changes'. I did try to photograph my new pieces today but the light has been shocking {grey grey days...} so I will take some more at the show {and of the display} to let you all see when I get back!!

One Year On at New Designers previews on Wednesday 28th June, and opens to the public Thursday 29th June - 2nd July at the Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, London.. If anyone would like to pop by and see me that would be great!! I will be back home from the big smoke on the 3rd...and will let you all know how it went then!!

So, for a week....farewell my friends!! Thank you all so much for all your encouragement and support of me and my work whilst preparing for this show...your kind words, advice and positivity have helped me no end! I hope you all have a great week...sending out HUGE hugs! Wish me luck ;)

Your work is so very beautiful. And, as I've mentioned before, your illustrations are just as breathtaking as the final pieces. You should really consider having them made into fabrics. I know I'd love them in my home!
Best of luck! Maryellen Quarles
