Hello again… Wow, can you believe that its June!?
Half the year gone already.
I have had such an amazing 6 months!  Looking over some of the stuff I have been up to this year leaves me feeling proud but exhausted.
Still doing my day job, mum stuff and everything else I can to avoid laundry…
My art has kept me so busy this year.
Last time we spoke I was just finishing up some work for a mini solo “Homage to George”.
The two new pieces are amazing!

Updating my resume made me realise that I have already had art exhibited in 7 different shows, entered 4 competitions, and have created new work for almost all of them!
I got a Highly Commended in Drawing at the Ipswich Art Awards, and was selected for the Online Gallery for the Lethbridge 10,000.
Highly Commended

But I’ve kept the most exciting news till last…..
I am so very proud to announce that I will be having a solo exhibition on the Stage in the Ipswich Art Gallery in October!!
Squeeeee!!!
I am so excited and still can’t believe it!
The theme will be building on my previous work in my “Mountain of Stars” solo last year, I am creating a series of work that will be exploring repeated patterns found in the natural and man-made environments.
Announcing “Echoes: Repeating patterns by Andrea Baumert Howard”
Expect to see more about this in the near future – in the mean time I will continue to be extremely excited/nervous/busy… and pinching myself …
