>Michelle Frederick exhibits for Moritz in Barcelona!

>Shed Creative Michelle Frederick has recently been commissioned by Spanish filmmaker Bigas Luna, to create pieces specifically for the latest Moritz launch event in Barcelona. Her work was exhibited at the event on Tuesday, and is also going to be used within their next advertising campaign – we are really pleased for her and so glad to see her work being recognised and commercially successful!


Here are a few pics of her work at the Moritz Launch on Tuesday night, and we’ll have a few more images from her to show you next week.

>Chelsea Davine is currently exhibiting her work as a part of Casa Decor, Barcelona – an annual event held in Barcelona and Madrid:


“The concept is to look for challenging spaces to occupy and then depending on the space Architects, design studios and artists as well as commercial businesses that art cutting edge in design etc are asked to participate. There are often themes running through the work, for example our stand was all about saving energy and ‘up-cycling’ so using unwanted steel etc….even though I want it! I was asked to collaborate with the design studio Arquitectura y Sentido.” – Chelsea


The exhibition is on now, until 11 December, at CASA DECOR, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 700, BCN from 11am-9pm daily.

>Guest Blog by Patrick Ridley, Artist of the Week

Photography has always interested and inspired me.

I began taking photographs a couple of years ago with a small pocket camera, last Christmas I was lucky enough to be given a Canon XXXX , I spent the following couple of weeks photographing everything I possibly could in Bahrain. 

Everywhere I go to I take the camera if I possibly can, I love it.

I’m lucky to be able to travel with my parents so took lots of photos in Lebanon this year. Everything from the poverty of refugee camps to the splendour of the mountains and countryside.

My other passion in life so far, is scuba diving and I have an underwater camera too.  It’s more difficult to use but very exciting.  

At weekends I help at a local steam museum, as well as rebuilding the old engines and operating them, I get to appreciate the industrial architecture and its beauty. Every chance I get I take photographs of the museum and the engines.

I’m trying  to discover my particular style;  I love taking photos of my friends and of the sea. Two of my friend’s fathers are professional photographers and they have let me use their studio to experiment with lighting and abstract objects which was very exciting.  

I like looking for the unusual shots in what is common around me.

I’ve just started a beehive so am using my bees for close-up wildlife photography!  

If you are wondering how I fit all these wonderful opportunities in with school, I’m home educated!!

>Artist of the Week: Patrick Ridley

>This week we are celebrating our youngest Shed Creative, Patrick Ridley, as our Artist of the Week! At just 14 years old, Patrick’s work explores darker colours and tones, and patterns of light and shade, so as to leave the viewer’s imagination to fill in what is not visible. To this end he is currently experimenting with black and white photography.


Patrick’s other passion is scuba diving, and he is enjoying learning the craft of underwater photography whenever he gets the opportunity. As usual – here are a few of Patrick’s images, and there will be more of his work on the blog this week. Please do click here to see his Shed profile, and more of his work, and do feel free to comment – at this early stage in his career, he is very happy to receive feedback and appreciates the support of other Shed Creatives, and more experienced photographers!

>Image of the Day, by our Artist of the Week

>Our image of the day today is Yonder, by Cynny Sharp – and we just wanted to pass on a bit more info from the artist, about the image.


“This image is taken from inside St Catherine’s Chapel in Abbotsbury where women go to pray for a husband! I just thought it might be nice for people to know that it was taken from a spiritual place.” – Cynny
