Summer Events & Open Studios 2018

I was busy as usual through July 2018 with local South London Open Studio events.

New free form embossed works on cotton paper by Gill Hickman


For the Brockley Open Studios I presented 3 of my new special embossed pieces in my newly decorated hallway. These were very well received and I’m inspired to do more using this special technique. Each one is a unique one off.

Happy Cells mixed media on canvas

For the Sydenham Artist’s Trail, I exhibited in a delightful new location this year with Mercedes Oakley, glass artist and Liz Pearson a jeweller. Mercedes has deep red walls in her dining room which formed a stunning backdrop for my white pieces, I showed a selection of my white “Happy Cells” paintings on canvas and some of my white embossed paper work such as “Outsiders” (below).

Unique blind embossing

For the High Street Art Gallery event I was offered a space in the window of Well Being, the well established health shop that I love. I’ve actually been shopping there for at least 20 years!! I chose to show one of my white “Happy Cell” pieces as it seemed to fit with the theme of healthy living!
