What’s my latest news?
Time for an update!
2023 was a monumental year.
A lot of very hard work; not taking my foot off the pedal.
I had the privilege and joy of several fantastic commissions and sales of 3 large Exotic Jungle paintings which each took me around two months to do. In the meantime I worked with 5 factories and dropped two, to produce my first official Fashion Merchandise from my Artwork.
It has always been a long held vision and dream to turn my paintings into moving Art in the form of luxury Silk Kaftans and Scarves, Kimonos, Pantaloons, Tote Bags and Cushions with most mixing and matching items.
The launch took place at Kelling Designs Showroom in Langton Street, London SW10 and was a huge success with a lot of very happy new clients.
In the meantime Sahara Fashion who have a chain of 16 outlets in Britain took on my Midrange Collection to show in 7 of their more prominent retail outlets from Tunbridge Wells, Cirencester to Oxford.
And I must not forget to mention when I took a stroll down the Kings Road in October wearing my first Pantaloons and carrying a matching Tote Bag, I got stopped 3 times at a Bus Stop asking where I had got my trousers from. And if that didn’t take me by surprise then walking into Jigsaw did when I was asked a further 2 times where I got my merchandise from and one was the Manageress herself. So I was a very happy bunny!!
Christmas 2023 and New Year 2024 were welcomed with open arms and January I have spent recovering.
Now it’s back to the drawing board painting new works of Art and new ideas. Also reaping the joys of the first Press Releases like being in Gentleman’s Magazine with a very surprising 4 page spread and other exciting write ups to come.
Onwards and upwards…. I go…..scary, exciting, overwhelming at times but nevertheless going from strength to strength and making dreams come true!
