From her studio in a remote cold war airbase in Suffolk, artist Abi Fawcus examines photographs of landscapes - snapshots of nature that her mind's eye transforms into mental impressions to stimulate imagination, abstract memory and a compelling sense of place.Read More
A piece of art is like a Mood Board, it has every aspect needed to stem the creation of an interior. The colour, location, artist, style, detail and depth.
With the new age of ‘creating experiences’ hotels more than ever need to tell a story and artwork is key...Read More
At my last exhibition a mother and her son came into the show to have a look around, the boy spotted one of my block prints and with huge excitement told his mother it was ‘Minecraft Art’ and that they must buy it… and they did.
Do I like Minecraft? Do I like any online game, do I wish my children were sewing, making, running and creating their games like Swallows and Amazons in the great outdoors.....Read More
The last day of summer, or so everyone said.
It has been an incredible Indian summer, made all the more special by the fact that it ‘shouldn’t be like this’ so a gifted to us each day.Read More
A recent talk I did at the fantastic Reasons.to Conference, a place to get inspiration and innovation. You guys know the merits of digital art but back in Suffolk in the Dark ages of 2009 it was akin to blasphemy.Read More
You guys know the merits of digital art, but back in Suffolk in the Dark ages of 2019 it was akin to blasphemy. All the same, my light-bulb moment came courtesy of PC World, when, late one December armed with my linux drive full of holiday snaps, I went down to transfer the files to my PC laptop. But £50 and one phone call later I was informed that they couldn’t transfer the files and that my hard drive was corrupted - this was worse than when Boots slapped 'Warning!' Stickers on my artful portraiture!...Read More

I never tire of looking at these guys work, a few of which I am lucky enough adorn my life greeting me in the morning or as I go about the day.. If you ever get a chance follow their instagram, get on their mail list and go and see them.Read More
I work in web, I collect data, lots of it, for all sorts of different clients for all sorts of different reasons.This data is taken away to be injected, inspected, detected, infected, neglected and selected! (thanks Arlo), and spat back out in the form of ‘Something I May Like’ - and here's my moral conundrum....Read More
So this isn't new, in fact - as a lot of technology first starts - it was foreseen in science fiction literature decades ago. We don't talk to each other by seeing colours and pressing buttons, and as computers - or robots - become more intelligent it begs to reason why we wouldn't talk to them in the same way as we talk to each other....Read More
I go out of my way to discover abstract art, my husband kindly points out I only like stuff similar to mine. I wish!! Here is a list of my top abstract artists, so you can make your own mind up.Read More
I've got to admit that I carry out my photography on my smart phone. I have an amazing SLR and traditional photographic training, but I found I kept missing the moment by not carrying this unwieldy object around with me. I shrunk down to a ‘pocket’ camera but realistically whose pockets are they meaning... not mine, and I’m not one for a handbag either so there became many moments I missed and wished I hadn't.Read More
My grandmother is an amazing oil painter, my mother is great at drawing horses (except for their feet), my mother-in-law is an incredible fine artist and my husband is pretty hot too! My aunt went to art school and was a flamboyant painter, punk and new romantic and my other granny had a wonderful 1950’s style of interiors never shy of strong lively colours. As we look back we can usually see what shaped our lives and art has always been around for me.Read More
I'm busily working on it! ...
