Making things from Art

Time has done it's thing and come around so fast and "A Handbook For Girls" Exhibition is almost coming to a close. (Nov 28th she comes down).

It's been my favourite exhibiting experience so far as it has given me the opportunity not only for immense personal satisfaction and achievement, but also the chance to meet and reunite with some like-minded and exceptional people.

I promised myself I would slow down and re-group after the show was up, but in true Joelie style, that hasn't happened... Instead I jumped onto the wagon rather than off and created a line of products that coincide with the exhibition work.

I've made many things in the past but this is the first range I've produced that I'm actually attracted to and would seek out to purchase for my own personal use...To me, that means I've hit the mark!

So take a look at what products I've made from my art and bare in mind that it's just the start... I'll be TRYING To take a hiatus from exhibiting for a while to focus more on producing prints and products. Keeping art accessible and able to be loved and handled, not just admired.

I'd like to see tatty pages and ink stains on these journals:

 Journal Specs:

Oh, and a good friend Mr. J Brown was kind enough to take photos of the opening night for me which I'll pop up here as soon as they're on my hot little hard drive. And photos of the exhibition on the walls of course.

New Logos too....

Thank you for your lovely love xoxox
