Following on from my fleeting visit to the Affordable Art Fair Preview Wednesday evening, it made me think seriously about the strong and growing relationship between art and interiors.

‘I don’t think I’m alone in feeling that the real New Year doesn’t begin on 1 January but on 1 September.

This weekend I spent most of my time enjoying the Affordable Art Fair, a wonderful annual event on our doorstep in Battersea Park. The fun is to be able to pop back everyday and see what catches my eye, not only do the exhibits change throughout the show but often I miss things on my first and or second or third visit! This year although there wasn’t anything I was desperate to hang on our walls there was a wonderful piece that did keep drawing in and I kept going back to, Autogenesis, 2016 by Jo Bradford represented by Eyestorm.
