New Designers

Last week i exhibited down at New Designers alongside some of my fellow MA and BA graduates from Glyndwr University.

As a stand we received a lot of positive feedback, with one of the BA students being selected for the creative review pick of ND, while my own work was selected for the Arts Thread blog:

It is a little surreal to emerge from a tiny corner of North Wales and to find that there really are people beyond the college walls and some of them have positive things to say about our work. It was an exciting time for all of us but i am very aware of how much hard work is ahead of me ... i'm looking forward to that.

In other news i spotted one of my lovely friend's work in Paperchase yesterday which was brilliant, work she got from exhibiting at New Designers in 2009, a nicely timed reminder that despite the overwhelming amount of competition, success is possible!
