Simone Kay is a stained glass artist living and working in Kingston upon Thames. While on holiday she always painted postcards to send to friends and family and used watercolour paintings as inspiration for her work.
As a new year’s practice for 2016 she gave herself permission to draw and paint one page a day!
She has completed 12 moleskine pocket watercolour notebooks which will be available to view (with white gloves) at the gala night on Tuesday 10th January at the Cornerhouse.
This will also be the opportunity to order a gi-clee print from any of the 366 pictures.
For one night only there will be a rolling slide show of the paintings along with photographs of the painting with the background of what she has drawn.
Simone said ” I have really enjoyed squeezing in the time to draw everyday and sometimes I wonder what I will be drawing that day! I was surprised by how many people who saw me drawing and chatted with me saying that it has inspired them to do something they love everyday, like write a poem, a diary or do their own drawings.”
Simone’s exhibition will run at the cornerHOUSE from 8 January to 29 January 2017. The gala night will be Tuesday January 10 at 7.30.
