My new Timeless Garden will be unveiled at the Accessible Art Fair Oct 28-30

This weekend is the bi-annual art event in Brussels that should not be missed by any art-lover. The Accessible Art Fair will open its doors to the public on Friday night and continue until Sunday. Once again, I will be participating by showing my photography and digital art.

Now that the winter chill is back in the air, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season and that means gift giving. What could be better than the gift of art? Especially when you have the chance to meet the artist in person and learn all about their inspirations and techniques.

For those of you unfamiliar with the AAF, it is a special event that takes place at the Conrad hotel. Over 50 artists – painters, sculptors and photographers, will be on hand throughout the weekend to share and sell their work. Unlike in a gallery setting, the art buyers have a chance to chat and interact with the artists and walk away with some beautiful works to hang on their walls.

Admission to the AAF is free and all of the works are priced between 50 and 5000 Euro, so the gift of art is within reach.

For more information on the artists participating in this weekend’s event, check out the Accessible Art Fair website.

I thought I’d share with you the pieces I will be exhibiting and selling at the fair. This time I will be showing some new works in the Forgotten Postcard series, some of my travel photography and I’m unveiling a brand new series, called the Timeless Garden.
