As a member of Made in Monmouthshire, I’ve got an Art stand at the Village of Artisans at Abergavenny Food Festival 2017. There will be original Sea Spray paintings, some small flower watercolours, limited edition prints and Arty Cushions, Scarves and Tote Bags. The Wild Iris Art Cushion will be there in all her glory 🙂 Hope you can make it x

Where Lillies Dream showing at Oriel CRiC Gallery

This is a close up of a couple of Lillies in the painting ‘Where Lillies Dream’ It’s part of the new black & white collection which I’m currently exploring and having lots of fun with. Black & White giclee print that I’ve hand embellished with inks, 24ct gold leaf and a little touch of pink and irridescent water sparkles 🙂

Where Lillies Dream amd Exotically Black are in the new Art Exhibition at Oriel CRiC Gallery, Crickhowell. It’s a really lovely Gallery and well worth a visit.

Shows August & September … Night Market, Art in Penallt, Abergavenny Food & Wine Festival

Got quite a bit going on… as part of Made in Monmouthshire, we have a shared Art & Craft stand at the popular Abergavenny Night Market on 17th August. Then 2nd and 3rd September, I’ll be at Art in Penallt. Not been there before but it’s a beautiful setting and I’ll be taking some of my original Sea Sprays and little gardens, a number of limited edition prints as well as Art Scarves, Arty Tote Bags and Cushions.

Later in September 16th and 17th I have a stand with Made in Monmouthshire at the Abergavenny Food & Wine Festival. I have been to that but not in an art capacity. It’s a major event and brings people from afar. Had a blast last year and thoroughly enjoyed sampling the cider! I’ll be there but selling art and arty merchandise this time.

Come say hello…

Royal Welsh Show July 24th – 27th

I’m a member of Made in Monmouthshire and there are 13 artists on the MIM Stand at The Royal Welsh Show from jewellery, textile, hand woven shawls, glass, ceramics, photography and paintings. Never done before as been living in Australia until recently but very excited. I’m on duty on the Thursday.

The breadth of art of the Made in Monmouthshire Artists is really amazing and I’m proud to have found them and be part of it all in our new life and adventures in Wales.

I’ve got a number of limited edition giclee prints framed and unframed and some of my rare Sea Sprays and little garden original artworks will be there too. I say rare as they take me ages to create and I haven’t started any more so when I do they will be ready next year 😉 There are also some Art Scarves and Arty Tote Bags on sale at the show, printed from original paintings.

The Deep Blue Ocean tryptic

The 3 Sea Sprays named the Deep Blue Ocean and my take on the beautiful powerful sea.  Created by painting many layers of inks between layers of a non-toxic type resin on beechwood.

I’ve entered these into the Crickhowell Oriel Gallery Art Competition – not sure if they will be accepted yet but if they are they’ll be on view and for sale late May through to June in the Gallery.

Each Sea Spray is 25cm x 20cm – Hope you likex

Scarves here we come

One of 5 scarves I’ve had printed from my original paintings – this one is Oriental II and 140cm, slightly transparent and would look terrific as a sarong or wrapped around you as a creative top or draped around your neck or even as a head scalf.

Available now so please email me@sallymills.gallery or will be up on the ‘shop’ section soon.

Wild Irises – along the river bank

The three Irises are part of my new exploration of what lies and lives along the waterways.  It’s my abstract take on the dark tangle of reeds and grasses and then the beautiful iris popping their heads up, having a look around whilst in the comfort of the bank – there’s a slight breeze and it’s a bit chilly but it’s a clear sky and there’s lots going on along the river bank and it’s a good day 😉
