Open Studio

Fabric Swatches


Our Chaos
I feel a certain melancholy as I acknowledge the end of an era. That does sound somewhat over dramatic but it is time to say good bye to this lovely work space, in doing so we are opening the studio for anyone to come in and have a nose and a chat.

This really is Bethan, my amazing friend and talented artists' studio. Without her I would never have had the courage to return to illustration. She has given me the time, encouragement, cups of tea and lots of laughter, to keep at it until I stumbled upon  my new found passion of fabric design.

Bethan I cannot thank you enough for the last two years!

This is, however, a new beginning despite the fact that we will miss many lovely people who adopted us as the studio was almost a little shop with an open door for friends and the curious. Once I have moved house there will be a new studio in my back garden where there will be space for lots of paint and ink to be splashed around by myself and Bethan (although she will have space for some sanity in a new room in the High Street as well), and we will just have to meet up with old friends in one of the lovely bars or coffee shops in town, hardly a hardship. Plus I will have the new challenge of creating a new home for my boys. Busy times ahead!


  1. Hi Wendy, it's me!! Sounds like you had a wonderful space there, so lovely too that you and Bethan have each others company/support. Hope you enjoy your new studio in the garden, the local bars and coffee shops sound good too! xx

  2. aaaww, shucks Wendy! It's been a lot of fun, but I must admit, local bars and coffee shops do also sound like a good plan. Do you think they'd mind if I took my paint brush....?
