Ilana Richardson and Guests – Artists Open House

Please be invited to my next show, which happens all through May 2017, part of Artists Open Houses in Brighton. I’m so pleased to have been invited back to Ilana Richardson’s house for an exhibition of Art, Ceramics, Photography and of course my Jewellery designs. The show will be hosted by established watercolour artist Ilana in her own home. Ilana’s artwork always makes me yearn for travel as she captures beautiful Mediterranean locations that bring back happy holiday memories and chilled sunny vibes.
