Artist No.3 - Abby Cork
"I'm so excited being part of Bucks Open Studios for the first time this year and if you'd asked me 6 years ago that I'd be exhibiting and selling my artwork I would have laughed out loud!
My adventure into art came about through a conversation with Zoe Day, professional artist and owner of Buckingham Art School. We were chatting at the school gate one afternoon waiting to pick up our children and Zoe mentioned that she was running a parent and child art class locally and would I be interested in coming along with my son. As I loved art at school and I really liked the idea of doing something creative with my son I thought I'd give it a go. We had a great time at our first session and with Zoe's encouragement and belief in me I continued to learn and grow under her tutelage. (Thank's Zoe, you opened up my world). It's amazing to think that none of us know what's round the corner and opportunities can open up just from a casual conversation with a friend.
I've subsequently exhibited locally with BAFA (Buckingham Art for All), who are the local art group and who have a plethora of amazing talented artists.
Bucks Open Studios is a fantastic opportunity to see art in local communities and whether you are an artist yourself or just like to look at art then there is something for everybody so please support this wonderful event and may be it will inspire you to give it a go as you never know what could happen!"
