We live in Walthamstow in north east London. For 15 years the E17 Art Trail has grown to become a thriving cultural force in the area. This year (2019) it ran for 16 days (June 1-16) across 200 locations involving hundreds of participants. It was truly awesome.
This was the first time I’d taken part as an artist showing work and this is an overview of what it looked like.
The show draws together a lot of the things I’ve been making over the course of the last year and a half. The key theme is a play. It connects all the products, prints and paintings shown. I want that playfulness to be infectious.
Some of this work is available from my shop – and other bits will be soon. If you’re after something in particular, give me a shout.
‘Happy to see you arrive, sad to see you go’ doormat
‘Things I want to grow’ plant labels
‘Button nose’ – this is a service. If you have a doorbell without a face, I can put that right.
‘Nope‘ series of postcards. These are available individually and as a set.
A reminder to the visitors to take their shoes off as they come in. The caption told visitors to ignore this sign.
A fella just taking it easy.
