Big Birthday Girl

 

The Christie’s show was a beaut. Thank you to the Royal Drawing School for putting it up. Such a slick operation and such a stunning lot of artwork. (Thanks to @beccamaycollins for the photo above)

Next week our end of year exhibition opens at the drawing school. That’s The Royal Drawing School, 19 – 22 Charlotte Road, London, EC2A 3SG. That’s Shoreditch. The show continues until the 16th of January 2018.

We have been painting our studios to make them look so super lovely and I think it is definitely worth coming to look at what we have on there too. Some cracking paintings, sculptures and animation. Open Studios opens on the 28th of November, and I think you can get in there from 11am. That’s Space Studios, 129 -131 Mare Street, Hackney, London, E8 3RH. The Open Studios open evening will be Friday 1st December, 7-9:30pm.

That’s enough shows for now.

Love,

Jessica.

P.S. Actually, no it’s not. Go see The Sentinel’s Christmas Kaleidoscope exhibition too!

I now have an Instagram account. Social media makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. But who knows, I may learn to love it. If you would like to encourage that (and please do!) then you can find my page here:

I painted the above in Italy on a 10 day painting adventure with The Royal Drawing School. Alice was lying in the hot midday sun and I painted her as quickly as possible.

See you for the upcoming shows (which I will confirm dates of soon).

Thank you to everyone who visited our hot hot studio last weekend. And the ones who trekked out to Suffolk for ISBN. That was lovely.

I will be wedded to my studio this summer and knee deep in finishing my post-grad at the drawing school. Will keep you updated on the end of year show. Until soon.
