Oh my word… where has this summer gone?? This newsletter is rather overdue – I can only blame it on the fact the summer has been glorious, Ive been beavering away …. all to be revealed and I have only just come up for air!
Moving Studio … Thornbury to downtown Bedminster, BS3
Absolutely love my new studio space in a derelict printing factory – I don’t know how long we have it because the site is due to be redeveloped into luxury flats but all the artists renting space are hoping there are delays with planning :O) so could be 6 months or 2 years – who knows but its all about making the most of it! Im sharing the Print Works with a new arts collective called Carraboo, young, vibrant multi talented artists – all very exciting and inspiring – I really am very lucky.

News Flash, Sals new business …….. Red Dog Glass Design launched !!!!!!
Many of you may have guessed I had something brewing, well I can now officially announce the launch of my new contemporary art, glass panel company. I wanted to create a company that I could work with my creative side as well as pull on the business side of my careers – have to admit this is the first time I have started my own business though…. its extremely exciting.
Fanfare of trumpets ………take a look at my new website Red Dog Glass Design
Im working with an amazing glass panel manufacturer Opticolour to bring to the world the most amazing kitchen glass splash backs ! I aim to target kitchens initially but the plan is to expand the range into bathrooms, hotels and hopefully commercial buildings next year. Heres a link to the e-brochure
3 orders in already, one going into the showroom of The Kitchen Man , a kitchen design company in Clifton, Bristol. and another into the open kitchen at the amazing Alchemy 198, a brand new Arts Bar on Gloucester Rd – it’s so new, the opening party is on Sat 17th November.
