Paumes ‘London Ateliers’

February 25, 2009

Me, my work and studio/shop have been featured in Paumes ‘London Ateliers’, a Japanese guide book to female artists studios in London. It’s great, especially if you like snooping into other peoples work spaces. I’ve really enjoyed looking at the fantastic work that some of my contemporaries are producing and you could do the same.

I was looking after Martha’s dog Pat for the day so she is a star now too!

New to Elphick’s are these exquisite drawings by the artist Jen Franklin. They have been reproduced as Giclee archival prints in very small editions of 10.  £115 each.








Chine Colle

I am still trying to perfect the art of etching and in particular the technique of Chine Colle. It feels like I am kind of getting there after discovering some fantastic Japanese papers at Falkiners. I am particularly happy with this colour combination.



Will You Be My……

Love is in the air and Valentines is just around the corner. Elphick’s has a fantastic selection of cards by the splendid Lisa Jones.



Rob Clarke

Rob has been busy with the paints again and has brought in some more beautiful paintings of birds. These two are a couple of my favourites, I love the vibrant blue backgrounds. The words depict the birds chorus apparently, Great Tits like to sing ‘tee-ta tee-ta tee’, whilst the Bullfinch sings ‘pew-pew’. Both measure 10″ x 8″ and are £188 each.

We woke up to a Winter Wonderland on Monday morning, London was covered in a gleaming white blanket of snow. No school for Martha meant a day off work for me and what better way to spend the day than to make a Snowoman. There were lots of other families getting creative with the white stuff in Haggerston park and the bear in the second picture was one of our favourites. The tennis courts looked pretty good too.
