Exciting times

I’m busily working on my exhibition which is fast approaching.  I’ve come on here to publish the details and I cringe at how little time I’ve spent on here.  But, in my own defence, I’ve had my nose to the grindstone working on lots of pieces and entering lots of exhibitions and competitions.  I’m hoping to put up a list of where I’ve been exhibiting and which galleries I’m now represented by.  Another task to add to my growing list …….

A clear focus

I have come to the momentous decision to close my online business Kay’s Artycles. There are all sorts of reasons why I’ve chosen to do this, but the main one is to concentrate on my art and jewellery work. It has been a tough decision to make, and a great deal of angst in it’s process. So, I will shut the shopping facility down on the webstore on 31st December this year (2014).

Kay’s Artycles will be at The Bead Show in Box Hill June 19 – 21, 2015 and also BSV’s Bead Expo, Moorabbin, November 6-8, 2015.

I will continue to teach both at home in my studio and at venues around Victoria (hopefully other states too!) I will also continue to allow personal shopping at Neerim South by Appointment...
