I’m really looking  forward to open my studio to the public for the first time this year, on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June as part of the Camberwell Arts Festival. There are several other events and exhibitions taking place at the weekend, including a Jubilee-inspired trail of cardboard pet corgis designed by Garudio Studiage and customised by local residents, schools and community groups.

2 mixed media paintings by Gabriela Szulman

I have been working on a new collection of small mixed-media paintings that I’m in the process of framing ready for the open studio – you can see a couple of them above but photos don’t really do them justice: they have to be seen in person to be appreciated in their full glory! Go to my instagram feed if you’re curious to see work-in-progress images from this series.

You’ll also get to see a range of  articulated collage dolls ( Mr K, Betsy and Queenie above) as well as my much weirder upcycled mannequins and vintage dolls which are loved and hated in equal measure.

There will be lots of pictures to choose from, both framed and unframed, starting at £65 for signed giclee prints. A small selection can be seen in the gallery display below.

During the open studio you will also find stock that is no longer available on the website at bargain prices, including watercolour and print samples plus jewellery starting at just £10.

Printmaker Pauline Amphlett will also be taking part in the Open Studios Weekend and you’ll  find her at 8 Empress Mews. Her work is wonderful and she’ll be showing all manner of prints on paper plus screen-printed and hand blocked textiles.

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.
