What's happening?

My website is having a makeover, 2 years overdue.

Please be patient, I will be adding photos of my old uni work and current illustrations !

Follow me on twitter (@minirice_uk) or check out my Facebook 'Like' page, which currently houses some of my illustration work or check out my twitpic account for up-to-date images.

I have also decided that I will only be posting my work, artist spotlights and work that I find inspirational, rather than exhibitions, things that I have been to and other art related news.

My first visit to the We Are Bham Shop

2010Posted by Lainey Sat, January 08, 2011 00:23:10

It's been a month or two since the We Are Birmingham shop has opened, it is such a nice thing to have in Birmingham, a nice support for students and general artists/designers to promote the things they love and enjoy.

(Some of my paintings in the store)

More photos of some of the print work they are selling in there:

Artists such as Lizz Lunney, Yee Ting Kuit and my good friend Kate Hindley

Yee and Kate have been featured in the Girls Who Draw postcard set called 'Magic'

I've bought some ace things in there so far!

My 'Leopard in a leotard' badge by the above Lizz Lunney.

The shop is a must to check out and now, there is a January sale on! which includes some of my art work (20-30%) off!

I seem to have made some horrid mistake and not planned this website reconstruction very well! but at least this way, I can keep you all updated on what is going on.

For those who already follow my work, and even those who haven't seen my work, it will soon be sold in the WEAREBIRMINGHAM shop.

For images of my work, please go to my Facebook 'Like' page.

Images will soon be uploaded to this site.

Thanks for your patience.
