Places of Joy Exhibition Artists

Places of Joy Exhibition


A joint exhibition of artwork by Sky Siouki and Harriet Popham.

OPEN EVERYDAY – Mon-Sat 10am – 6:30pm. Sun 11am – 5pm.


Sky and Harriet each create imaginative scenes that celebrate animals and architecture using paint and ink. Both of their work is fuelled by their inspiration from the places they depict but also by their love of the creative process itself. When painting and drawing, or carving and printing, Sky and Harriet are each immersed within their very own happy place.

Sky’s places are ethereal, abstract landscapes created using layered textures in mixed media and oil paint. Her paintings are of imagined places inspired by nature and often become habitats for her intricate wildlife illustrations. Harriet’s places are illustrative and often celebrate the pattern and form found within architecture and decorative objects. Each of her lino prints are reminiscent of a special trip or moment in time. Intricate details are carved within bold silhouettes.

Both artists studied textile design as is apparent through their eye for composition and colour. The two of them came together a few years ago through a shared love of each other’s work, only to find they’ve formed a cherished friendship and now support each other in their lives and careers.


Find the exhibition in the gallery space at the back of Prior Shop in Cabot Circus, Bristol. Either Sky or Harriet will be on hand to talk about the artwork throughout the exhibition except on Friday 21st October. If you’d like to ask anything about the show please don’t hesitate to contact either artist.

Exhibiting New Artwork


Over the recent few months I have begun exhibiting original artworks in several galleries in the UK which has been a very exciting new venture for me. It’s still something I am getting used to and feels considerably more scary than selling products since there’s so much more value and emotion involved in my paintings.

This is me at the private view of ACE Arts‘ British Wildlife Open Exhibition which has been on throughout October. In partnership with Somerset Wildlife Trust, this new open exhibition aims to raise awareness of the wildlife around us and was a fantastic and very varied show to go and see. I had two pieces selected called Gold Hop and Spring Tide. It felt a real honour to be selected and I now also stock my cards and kitchenware range in the gallery shop downstairs. The exhibition is on for a few more days until November 3rd so do try to see it before it ends if you are close to Somerton.




I am also currently exhibiting several new original paintings as well as lots of framed prints in my usual haunt, The Malago restaurant, in Bristol together with Oil & Oak. The exhibition is called Landskien and is on until January 6th so perfect if you’d like to buy someone some art this Christmas. The exhibition is inspired by the beauty of nature with Landskien meaning the braiding of horizon lines on a hazy day.






If you’re a bit further afield than Bristol, there may still be a gallery near you exhibiting some of my artwork currently. I also have some paintings exhibited with Obsidian Art in Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, The Golden Sheaf Gallery in Narberth, Wales and Carron Pottery & Gallery up in Strathcarron, Scotland. If there is a piece you are interested in that you have seen me share on Instagram or my website please do email me to find out where it’s available from.
