New Art by thepaintdistresser

The 'VIEW at the top' summer exhibition ends this week - no sales for me unfortunately, unless someones holding off until the last moment - but it was good to have my work out in the real world, for a few weeks.

I've just added 4 new paintings to my website, which were completed in the last few weeks. This one's called Intrigue.

Charlottes Latest Escapade

My latest art/illustration/design work, as seen below, can now be found scattered around Nottingham (and the web!) in the form of posters and flyers for the wonderful Pitty Patt Club Burlesque Lounge (Halloween Voodoo Spooktacular!)

Come and meet me in person on the night of the 31st, I'll be there at the Social, dressed as a evil black widow complete with spiders and veil (its halloween, come on!). It'll be a great night full of great music from the 20s - 50s, rockabilly. psychobilly and sweet harmonies from the Puppini Sisters, and of course there'll be fabulous burlesque acts from my clients the Deville Dolls! Definately worth the trip! If you want to get your hands on a signed flyer, email me at enquiries at and I'll send one over to you.
