Art trade prompts shelf re-shuffle
I think I am way overdue with my #urbanjunglebloggers plant shelfie post, but I wanted to share a little about a recent art trade that I did with a talented artist who lives all the way over in Florida, which from Birmingham in the UK is a looong distance.
For people who don't know me, I have been selling my ceramics for just over two years, so still fledgling in a lot of respects, but am also a big fan of plants and nature.
A while back I got interested in the work of Jenny Kiker from @livingpattern , who paints nature inspired images of plants, succulents, birds, shells and much, much more. I was instantly drawn to her fresh, original style, but was disappointed as her work was always sold out. When I contacted Jenny about purchasing some work, I was over the moon when she suggested a trade as she had seen my work and loved my little planters.
So, we made the most happy art-trade. And of course, I had to tidy up my shelves in the studio at the same time.
