Last chance to visit the Spring Open Exhibition at Miss Annabel Dee Gallery & Studios - 153 Leigh Road, Leigh-on-Sea. Old man will be waiting there still concentrating on those bingo numbers...
The Spring Wraptious cushion competition has started... If you would like to vote for or buy any of my designs that would be fantastic :D
Last year, thanks to your support, I was a finalist!
The winning artist will be promoted by Wraptious for two years, and they will also proudly display their entries at the Harrogate Trade Show in July!!
8 artists will be shortlisted based on points gained from either:
a) Cushion sales (50 points per sale)
b) Facebook likes of either: i) The FB like button on your entry page on Wraptious, ii) The FB post they create of entries, iii) the individual photos they also post on FB. (1 point)
Points will count as soon as work is visible below, through to 28th May. A further 5 shortlisted entries will be chosen by Wraptious. Shortlisted entries will then be shared with a panel of over 50 industry experts from trade and retail across the UK.
All 3 designs can be viewed here: https://www.wraptious.com/search?q=victoria+sills
I've just entered 3 pieces into the Summer Wraptious competition. Last year I managed to get into the final with 533 entrants taking part. This year the competition is open to countries all over the world, the winning artist will be promoted on their site for two years, and will have the opportunity to display their work at the Harrogate Trade Show in July!

Crow Stone - Collage print pattern
The Crow Stone is a boundary stone which formerly marked the limits of London city law. Also known as Crowstone or City Stone it stands on the mud at the bottom of Crowstone Avenue in Chalkwell (Southend-on-Sea).
Redcaps - Collage print pattern
The Redcaps print takes its name from the Chalkwell Redcaps, an open water social swimming group based in Southend-on-Sea. This collection plays with the Dada concept of chance. An initial random placement of collaged photography offered a way of letting go of conscious control.
Beach Hut Lollies - Black - Collage print pattern
This print features a photograph of the pastel coloured fibre-glass changing huts located along Chalkwell Esplanade. The Seaside collection plays with the Dada concept of chance. An initial random placement of collaged photography offered a way of letting go of conscious control.
Shapes - Yellow - Collage print pattern
The Shapes print uses offcuts of other collaged elements alongside a photograph of a beach groyne and its reflection near The Leas in Westcliff-on-Sea. The Seaside collection plays with the Dada concept of chance, a way of letting go of conscious control.
