Parallax Art Fair

It's been a couple of weeks of framing and now all's done.....
This is a new venture for me in this, my home country! My work was accepted for the Parallax Art Fair in Chelsea...excited and stressed.
Oh well... I used to exhibit framed work when I lived in Minnesota - did it then - can do it now! The only difference is that in Minnesota I was paid a in London I pay for the privilege - that's just the way it is for us artists today.
Handmade paper, chine colle, pencil, collage, collagraph.
