It was a lovely surprise to have some good news recently – my painting of a spiral staircase has been selected for the RI Watercolour exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. It’s so long since I’ve been to any exhibitions so it will be lovely to visit one and to also be a part of it. If you’d like to visit the exhibition, pre-booking will be required here:- https://www.mallgalleries.org.uk/your-visit/admission
Happy to be featured as ‘Artist of the Day’ on Artfinder. Visit my Artfinder shop here:- https://www.artfinder.com/suzsi-corio
2 of my watercolour paintings have been pre-selected for the Royal Institute of Watercolours exhibition at the Mall galleries. ‘Bessie’s Dress’ is a collage made from many fragments of hand painted pieces of paper with varied tartan and plaid effects. I really enjoyed making this painting. ‘Nancy’s Dress’ is a nod to the 20’s, now that we are in the 20’s again but was made before we knew what an awful start to the new decade was to come. Take care and stay safe, everyone.
The new owners of ‘Amuna’s Dreamland’ recently sent me this photo of it on the wall of it’s new home – look at their gorgeous garden view! I’m really pleased to see it ‘in situ’ and in such a lovely setting.
“Letrasetland’ is one of Artfinder’s ‘Editors’ Picks:- New For August’ . See it here:-
It’s a mixed media painting in acrylic, ink, collaged Letraset sheets and birch tree bark (!)
I’ll also be adding cityscapes and garment paintings to sell on Artfinder very soon. I’m selling paintings with free worldwide shipping (mostly unframed) but I can also supply frames if preferred.
I’ve just joined ‘Artfinder’ and several of my paintings are now for sale on it here:- https://www.artfinder.com/suzsi-corio
I was pleased to see that ‘big Rock Mountain’ was chosen as one of their ‘pick of July’ paintings which was great as I’d only just joined!
I’m now offering art classes in experimental painting techniques available at my studio (which is part of a converted Victorian school in East Dulwich, London SE22) for up to 6 people per class.
Classes are informal and friendly and are suitable for everyone aged 18 and over from complete beginners to those with some experience of painting who would like to be a bit more adventurous with their working methods. Classes can be tailored towards students’ specific interests to a certain extent.
Painting workshops are a great way to have a break from the stresses of daily life and can also help develop your confidence and well-being whilst having fun and meeting new local people with similar interests.
All classes are 2 and a half hours long and are held on weekdays and basic materials can be supplied if you don’t have your own. Taster sessions are available. For more information and to see the sort of techniques that I can show you, have a look at my instagram feed https://www.instagram.com/studio.se22/ and to see my studio where classes are held, check out https://www.instagram.com/loft.location.londonse22/
