Hello! Happy Sunday to you. My latest painting which was a commission. I’ve used oil as it creates amazing textures and a glossy shine. I’ve also used gold leaf and gold paint which was one of the colour schemes of the the brief. It’s mounted in a 50 x 50 cm frame. If you’d like a commission or just thinking about one please contact me and we can have a chat. A similar size commission to this would be £155 to £200 depending on the brief.

I completely failed at Day 8 of #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker Flatlay but I did take a photo of my kitchen table as I was working on my finance report for the #camvalleyartstrail it’s flat and it’s from above, but a few bits are overlaid 😳 I am going to tackle Flatlay another time though when I’m back in the studio.
Day 7 #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker Routine. My day most definitely starts with a pod coffee, no matter how much time I don’t have I do have time to make myself a coffee whilst trying to manoeuvre my two children out to school. It’s always in one of my little cow cups I bought on my honeymoon in Amsterdam nearly 9 years ago. The rest of my days are never the same, last week I was in village Panto madness typesetting a programme, this week I’m deep in end of year finances for the #camvalleyartstrail
Here goes with Day 1 of #marchmeetthemaker You! I am Sophie of Disco and Fish Designs, based south of Bath and Bristol in the lovely Somerset countryside. I make silver jewellery amongst other crafty bits and pieces. I’ve just started doing workshops to show other people how to make shiny silver jewellery too. I love hitting metal with hammers. I’ve also discovered recently, whilst panic making, that I’m pretty good at night time dark silversmithing 😬 I’m part of the #camvalleyartstrail we’ve been running for nearly 6 years now and have been spreading art making through workshops to the local community alongside our yearly Trail and sales days. I’m going to try my best to complete this years March meet the maker as I failed last year #determined #art

Love the colours on this. Something I learned last weekend on a #camvalleyartstrail members art day. Acrylic textile transfers with @karengeorgeart and copper work @discoandfishdesigns
Join me and fellow #camvalleyartstrail artists and learn a new skill.
Enjoyed an inspiring @camvalleyartstrail members day yesterday. A chance to try new techniques and think of new ideas for 2018. So many workshops, thanks to all the members who gave up their time and materials to teach . Especially loved making this pendant with @discoandfishdesigns, the new acrylic technique with @karengeorgeart and making my Scafito tile with @andreweddleston. Lots of plans and ideas for @ginabelfordart for 2018#camvalleyartstrail #lovewhatido #artistsoninstagram #bathartist #copper #arcylic
