A local focus in the global marketplace!
This website is about putting local artists and events in touch with local people – wherever they are.
I’ve always been interested in creativity. Even before I became an artist. I visit lots of events, I meet lots of other artists, potters, jewellers and I’m amazed by how many artistic and creative people there are. I’m even more amazed that most people aren’t aware of the brilliant artists in their area.
The aim of this website is to put local people in touch with the creative people in their area.
As the site develops you will find more and more of those artists here.
Through my blog I will tell you about events I have been to, events I plan to visit and I will share with you the artists I have particularly enjoyed and which you might enjoy too.
There are always more artists that I like than I have space to mention, so I will provide you with links where you can find out more.
Would you like to be informed? It’s easy.
Would you like to tell me about amazing art in your area? It’s easy!
