Also a big thank you to the all the retailers that have helped make 2011 such a happy and successful year for me.
I am looking forward to working and sharing lots of new product with you all in the coming year.
2011 saw Ruby Victoria Letterpress & Printmaking grow from a little business that was run from my kitchen table to a studio based workshop in Battery Point which was a huge step for me but a step that I was very happy to make. and so was my husband :)
In the coming year I am hoping to be a little more organised and I will be holding workshop, teaching basic lino carving and printing to small groups this will be another big step for me but I believe it is where my work has been heading for some time and I have just been to chicken to just jump in and do it , but with the encouragement of some of my beautiful creative friends, I have decided to tentatively take the plunge.
I also have some exciting collaborations in the pipeline with a couple of lovely mainland businesses that I am very proud to be working with, one a florist and the other a food importer, it feels wonderful to be going into the new year with work waiting for me to get stuck into.
I will also be take part in a group exhibition at Rebecca Roth gallery along with Grace Garton, Shane Garton, Elizabeth Barsham and a few other local artists, it is going to be a very interesting show and I am very proud to be exhibiting along side these amazingly talented artists more about this when the time of the exhibition draws nearer just think Autumn symphony :)
