The Camberwell Open Studios Weekend on 4-5 December is the perfect Christmas shopping opportunity to purchase art and beautifully made objects direct from local artists and designers. Whether you’re looking to explore behind the scenes of workshops that are not normally open to the public, commission gifts or buy unusual one-offs not available on the high street, you’ll find a wealth of choice available at the open studios in and around Camberwell.
Here at 6 Empress Mews, I’ll be showing pictures, decoupaged glass dishes and decorative objects, as well as greeting cards and jewellery. I’ll also have special studio offers on discontinued stock, and the book House of Cards: step-by-step projects for beautiful handmade greetings cards available for sale with a mini-print for £20.

I’m delighted to have invited artist Kip Perdue of Kartegraphik showing at the studio once again: Kip makes exquisite papercuts and specialises in maps of cities. He welcomes commissions so if you’ve always wanted a piece of art of your special place in the world he’s your man!

My work is often humorous and whimsical – unless my romantic side takes over and then we enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits.
