Popsicle Lewes

A while ago I saw a shop in Lewes called Popsicle and was in love!   

“Live life in colour” is the text on the door of this shop, and it’s wonderful, vibrant owner Sharon does just that.

I am really excited to be exhibiting a series of paintings on the shops display board in the Needlemakers cafe.

Please check out the shop, the cafe, and my work and let me know what you think. 

Have a wonderful, colourful weekend!

This morning

This morning met and followed the lovely Elise at Florescence

How it happened: Just over two years ago she made the mothers of the bride and groom flowers for my wedding. She did an amazing job and we kept in contact. I little while ago I asked her if I could follow her around and photograph her, and today it finally happened! Here is a little taste of some of the gorgeous images from the flower markets and her workshop. 

If you are getting married, or having an event, check out her website http://www.florescence.org
