It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

So, it’s December and it’s nearly Christmas. Already. How did that happen? Wasn’t it summer (if you can call it that) like about five minutes ago?

You can tell it’s almost Christmas, my last weekend was made up of eating some gingerbread & orange cake, several glasses of mulled wine with friends, a bonfire, hats, scarves, gloves, soggy feet, coming home to my excited flatmate putting up a Christmas tree in the living room, Christmas songs playing in the street and trying to learn the words to various Christmas carols ready for a gig this week. Oh yes & I acquired an electric blanket. A particular highlight. Who knew they were so great?!

Anyway, as well as the said gig, I have (or will have as of this week) lots of my most recent artwork up in the seven exhibitions that are listed below. So, if you are interested in seeing my artwork in real life & not just virtually on my website and on my Facebook page, then please go to one of these places to take a look! Another thing, if you need a wedding or event photographer in the near future, we at Capture Photographers are currently taking new bookings and if you are interested in developing & making the most of your digital photography skills you will be pleased to know that our courses are returning in the new year.

***Don’t forget, if you are Christmas shopping at the moment to consider buying affordable, original artwork as presents for your loved ones whilst also supporting local emerging artists***
