As part of the recent rebrand of our branch, we’re thrilled to now have the space to showcase local artist and their work.
The first to exhibit is Leela Fernandez, local Kingsville artist, who not only creates amazing artwork but jewellery as well.
“In the middle of my Graphic design degree, I took a jewellery making elective, and realised then that I was studying the wrong course! I have been on a journey since, yet have come full circle to be doing what feels aligned with who I am.
When I discovered painting with inks, I felt like my world had totally opened up. The joy of spontaneous flow mixed with phenomenal colour was beyond dreams and a total inspiration. With the play of colour, I found my voice, and adding that with design and shape I am able to dance!”
We have nine of her vibrant and inspiring artworks currently bouncing off the walls of the branch. Customers and locals are welcome to drop by and take a look at the exhibition between now and the end of January. You might just pick up that unique Christmas gift for someone special as all works are available for sale. In addition, Leela’s jewellery is available for purchase just a few doors up from the branch at Far Fetched Designs.
