Having been in the fortunate position of being commissioned by local councils for small scale commissions for Arts festivals over the last few years, it has been rewarding to be in a position to encourage and support other artists to become more involved this year.
However, it has also been an enjoyable experience to attend music and arts events this year as a spectator as well, purely to absorb the atmosphere and to be inspired by the fusion of styles and influences visibly evident also.
As those of you that follow my other social media sites will know, I also enjoy Health and Fitness in my (limited!) "spare" time. I was actively involved in Leisure Industry Week which took place at the NEC in Birmingham this month.
I inevitably began noticing the style and design details on apparel worn by other demo teams and have been considering initial design ideas for a sportswear inspired clothing range which I plan to be developing further in the new year...Stay tuned to hear about further updates re: this!
