Simply Cheshire was fit to bursting with exquisite products from vendors across Cheshire. This was the first event that I have displayed at and it was a real honour to be able to showcase my work amongst such talented people! My display included examples of my work and the various ways in which clients can chose to have their images printed. At the front was a Lay Flat album which included family portrait shots. Folios are a really great was of displaying images if you are running out of wall space! The larger prints such as 2mm art wrap, bamboo print and framed images were also very popular.
It was an inspirational event for me, I got to chat to many of the business owners about where their ideas came from and how they turned their dream into a reality. I particularly enjoyed chatting to Emma Cornes who caught my eye with her gorgeous hand made bags. She is self taught and uses her love of natural landscapes to inspire her tweed designs. Just like me (except for the tweed part)! Have a look at her work.
I also loved Anna Flora who won runner up Best in Show chosen by Jan Constantine. Her display was ordained with beautiful flower arrangements and vintage ornaments which definitely brought a new dimension to floristry. Have a look at her work.
On the second day, as all of the vendors began packing up, I was privileged enough to do a product photography session with Bib & Tucker UK. Being such a dog lover I was instantly drawn to their products. Their charming neckerchiefs would make any Dog look dashing, and in Winston they have a real star! Have a look at their work!
It was also a pleasure to meet the fabulous judges who voted for best in show, best new comer and outstanding artist.
Mark and Bella Radcliffe and Katrina Michel voted Staple & Ford as Best Newcomer.
Jan Constantine and Ben Jones voted Ox Eye Daisy as Best in Show.
Nick Munro and Laura O’Hare voted Ruth Sarah Designs for Outstanding Artist.
