Thinking ‘small’ this Christmas can make a big difference to local tradesr. Yes, it may look a little different this year,  so I’m spreading a bit of seasonal cheer with my colourful art designs. Many creatives, including myself and other traders, have had to diverse our skills to keep going in more ways than one. For instance, during the summer and ongoing, I’ve been fortunate to immerse with artwork and nature, building on my mural designs whilst giving joy to others too – which I absolutely love!

Consequently, it really confirms the importance of art, our natural world, and connecting with like-minded people, are such a tonic for mental wellbeing and nourishing our soul. Furthermore, our local communities and beyond are an invaluable part of supporting each other during these strange times.

So to brighten up our winter, I’ve launched a new limited collection: ‘Sunflower and Bee Happy.’  I’m excited to offer 20 limited editions, 315gsm fine art Giclée prints of the original canvas. Supplied by a lovely, local business Mockingbird Press  – a business for artists, run by artists.

Alternative Independent Traders

Fortunately, Bristol is bustling with an incredible array of alternative independent shops and family businesses. Let’s help each other, keeping our creative dreams alive. Other ways to support are by leaving a review, tagging friends on busniess pages you think they may like. Or even buying the smallest thing, can make a big difernce.

So, for a more personal service, perhaps consider thinking ‘small’ this Christmas, explore out of the tinsel box. Be inspired and support local especially this year and try to resist buying from the big ‘uns online – you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
