Moving the blog

This must be the year of moves ! I made the decision to move my blog to here . The name Kiamyka is linked to where I used to be before I decided that my work should be linked to my name rather than some brand name

Soooo can all my lovely followers pop over to the new blog site  and click to follow me from the new blog?
Thanks and see you all over there :)

Uh Oh I have confused things for you

Let me just make things clear - my new studio is NOT where I posted the last pictures - that is where I am going to be Artist in Residence for 2 weeks in April
This means that I get to stay there and work from within the Summerhouse for the 2 week period

I will be giving more specific details soon I promise and I have had some lovely Invitations printed which will be sent out to all those people whose land address I have -if you want the invite then email me your land address please

Next week I will take photos of my new Studio (which is nothing like this place)
I am looking forward to meeting up again with John McIntyre who's going to come and see me as part of a project he's doing for his degree work - all good fun !

Another sneak preview..

So here is another preview of where I will be Artist in Residence - the shot was taken before Christmas from within the Summer House where I will be working . Isn't that just a beautiful residence!
This is the view as you walk up the drive

and here's the Summerhouse from the drive

am I excited? Answers on a postcard please :)

Mad Sale

I am still busy sorting out the new Studio - it's way too messy to show you photos  of yet but one thing I can do is offer you a bargain! 30% off all necklaces on the website  until the end of February!
Below is a sneak preview of where I will be ensconced  in April as Artist in Residence - the photo was taken before Christmas and they were using the Summer House to make Christmas garlands

A new twist on things

How about this then? I hand painted this silk scarf and added the beady detail - it closes with a magnetic clasp making it more versatile to wear. More to follow just as soon as I am settled in my new Studio

Moving On

Well to quote Bob "The times they are a changin" .  But of course change is good  it  stops us stagnating.
Most of my decisions are based around how can I maximise the energy I  have and so , along with other factors around which I have no control I have made the decision to move Studio. I will be moving to Westgate Studios in Wakefield which is a thriving community of artists.
There are many advantages for me but I will be sad to be leaving Doncaster and in particular Rosemary and Gallery 12a.  I will still be around in Doncaster from time to time so you don't get rid of me that easily and in April Rose and I have an exciting joint venture which we will tell you all about soon.
