JULY Pinterest Board of the Month

 

Whilst I’m in the midst of editing photos of my paintings to create new limited edition prints… and also working on a new design series of water birds to add to the Flight collection… Summer colours are inspiring me more than ever right now! Colour is what really fuels my passion for painting and is at the core of what I create. That and my love of birds obviously! So a Pinterest board full of beautiful satisfying colour combos just makes my heart sing basically.

This board is called COLOUR by Rebecca Jane Broome.

These three are some of my top faves, something about green is really calling to me lately. I never used to be much of a green fan but lately I’m all over it so expect to see more! I chose the board before realising Rebecca was in fact a fellow student on my textile degree, which explains her great choices of contrasting hues! The board is full of fresh nature inspired tones, many that have a summer feel perfectly suited to the hot July we’ve been having. Think dusky pinks, peachy oranges and deep botanical greens… yum.

Stay tuned for August’s board of the month! Sky x

 

NEWS for July

I have lots of exciting announcements this month for Sky Siouki! First up is that I am once again selling my work in The Little Shop on Stokes Croft in Bristol. It’s a fantastic little gallery and gift shop in the centre of Bristol and I was sad to decide to stop selling there over a year ago. However since launching new designs and products I have high hopes for making a roaring come back to Amber Elise and Alex Lucas’ creative brainchild so pop in to see their magical selection of things, including mine! It’s the one covered in rabbits and pineapples so you really can’t miss it.

They have also recently gained a partnership with the Boston Tea Party on Stokes Croft meaning some of my framed prints will now be hung up in the BTP cafe up the road as part of a continuous exhibition there curated by The Little Shop too!

Secondly, I am now selling beautiful digitally printed tea towels with full cover prints of my Flight collection designs! I couldn’t be more pleased with how these have come out, printed in rich colour onto 100% heavyweight cotton. They are the perfect accent accessory to add some style to your kitchen or would also make an ideal gift for a bird lover. See them all in my online shop here. I have a feeling they’re going to be a big hit!

Thirdly, I am going to be putting up a solo exhibition for the first time ever at the wonderful PAPER Arts Gallery from 28th July – 3rd August! I am very excited and have to admit a little (or a lot) nervous too, but it will be an excellent showcase for the new set of water bird designs I have just added to the Flight collection! All of my print designs will be available to buy framed and unframed as part of the show and I will hopefully also be producing a few original pieces of artwork especially for the exhibition. There will be a launch party on Thursday, 28th July from 6-8pm so if you are in Bristol please come along and say hi! Learn more and join the Facebook event here, and please please share away!

I will also be launching new greetings card designs very soon which should be available in just over a week. I’m full of ideas and raring to go at the moment so keep checking back and on my Instagram and social media channels for updates as there may be even more on the horizon for Sky Siouki yet!
