onegreensquare‘One Green Square’ Sharon Elphick 2014

I will be showing this collage at the East London Design Show, starting this Thursday. It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to show my own work, for the past seven years my attention had been focused on the retail space on Columbia Road. However, after a couple of months at the new studio I am getting into my creative flow and enjoying the results. I’m loving the simplicity of the geometry and the subtle colours and tones that I find in the vintage magazines.

So at the beginning of the week I set myself a challenge to create 10 original artworks of postcard size by today.

However, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and it has given me great satisfaction to see new work by ME on Elphick’s website. I am going to stay true to my word and offer ten originals for £65 but I think completion is more likely to be by the end of next week. The four that are finished to date are available now at

Day two, postcard number two. I’m not exactly sure what is going on here but I’m having fun. Trying not to think too much, just see what happens. It will be interesting to see them all together at the end of the week, in fact I better get my skates on otherwise there will be no chance of completing 10!
