All change! Butterfly moments & save the date(s)

Moon & Bird Art House, Stanford, South Africa

This is a public service announcement. I am currently undergoing a plethora of changes. I think I may be slightly stuck in pupal stage at the moment, so I’m hanging in there for my butterfly moment. My green parka jacket and kudu leather veldskoene from Swakopmund have grown around me like a cocoon.  And it’s cold out.

As would be expected in any pupa’s life, there will be butterfly moments coming up really soon (more about those below). In the meantime I’m getting my house in order (literally and on the internet), setting up a website for Moon & Bird Art House and migrating some of the content from this site over to that one.

Please forgive me in advance for missing pages, or trouble finding or logging in to anything.  I am trying to do it all with as little disruption as possible, but sometimes that doesn’t go according to plan.  If you have any problems don’t hesitate to email me.

Without any further ado, here are my anticipated butterfly moments for July:

Fri. 6th July 2018 sees the grand opening of Moon & Bird Art House with a gallery exhibition.  The opening starts at 5pm and includes my latest work and work by Siobhan Twomey and Sara Abbot.

Did I mention I was feeling calm?

Yes. I probably shouldn’t say this, but I am touching wood with my forearms (the underneath side) as I type this so here goes… Everything is falling into place quite nicely, even though there have been a few hiccups.

Sat. 28th & Sun. 29th July 2018 will be the first Creative Self-Expression workshop this year after a six month break. There are five spaces available as we have a little bit more room in my new studio (yay!)

The workshop is open for booking.  If you are interested and want more details, click here.

Mon. 20th & Tues. 21st August 2018 I will be holding the second Art Marketing Workshop for artists. There are six spaces available for this workshop.

The workshop is open for booking. Please click here for more info.

As befits being in pupae mode, here are the “before” photos. After photos to follow in another post after at least one butterfly moment.

Moon & Bird Studio, Stanford
This is my studio from the garden. All those windows let in lots of light.
Before photos of Moon & Bird Gallery
This photo is looking through one of the gallery rooms to where my studio is. The photo was taken before my things were in the studio.
Moon & Bird Studio - getting set up
My studio is the one part of the place that’s looking functional. But I haven’t been in there to paint yet.

The rest of this month is all about getting set up and fully functional. See you on the other side.
