Please join me at The Other Art Fair London at Victoria House & The College, Southampton Row, London. I will be exhibiting my Geometric prints well as my brand new Miami Pop series.

I am honoured to have been selected as one of 30 female artists to take part in a special presentation entitled Not 30%.  Curated by arts broadcaster and Soho House’s Head of Collections, Kate Bryan, Not 30% is part exhibition and part protest against the male dominated art world.

This exhibit takes its cue from the statistic that 60% of graduates are women, yet in galleries & exhibitions the presence of women artists amounts to a max of 30% and often far less.

My stand is located at The College, Old Central St Martins Building,  12 Southampton Row WC1B 4AF

If you happen to be wondering down Bond Street anytime soon, go take a look.

Art Shop at Bolesworth

Back in June, I had the pleasure of hosting my first small exhibition displaying new Cleo work since my move away from the footwear industry. The best part about that, was that I set up my art space at my family home, Bolesworth Castle, during the epic week-long Bolesworth International Horse Show, who's show director is my amazing sister, Nina. Check out my highlights post for more inside scoop!

It was a great experience to get my work out there prior to launching my online shop. Here, I showcased my new series of geometric prints, embellished with hand stitching, my new range of geometric print greetings cards and my new CleoB sneaker accessories.

FAQ : Life After Shoes

Cleo B was my shoe brand for 7 years. I designed and produced many collections of shoes and sold them internationally. I also designed collections of shoe accessories, such as clip on pom poms, crystal shoe clips and lace locks.  I most recently collaborated with Anthropolgie in the UK and USA which is where you may have come across my shoes. In 2016 I decided to make the bold move away from the footwear industry and embark on new projects.
