I was so lucky to be able to go the The Royal Academy of Arts in London during the summer to see the amazing Joseph Cornell exhibition, Wanderlust. It had over sixty of the artist’s assembled boxes, films and personal items. Came away with lots of inspiration and a lovely big biography!
Tim Wonnacott having a closer look at his box!
Sorry it has been a while since I have updated this site but so much has been happening since May! My twin sister and I were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the BBC programme, ‘Bargain Hunt’ which was filmed in Greyabbey and Belfast over two days and will hopefully be shown later in the year. This gave us the opportunity to meet the presenter and antique expert Tim Wonnacott who was very friendly and loved his box which I based around his home town and working life.
I’ll keep you informed when it will be shown on the telly!!
The two hearts have been won and are in the process of reaching their new owners (names on Facebook page).
In the meantime here is a pic of one of my favourite boxes!
Check out my facebook page – we have a giveaway!
We did it!! 1,500 likes to Denise’s Boxes!! Thanks so much for all your support over the past 4 years. Now I have two of my altered hearts to giveaway as a thanks you! One is mainly grey and red with a little glass bottle with ‘rescue me’ inside and the other is mainly green and has a more historical look with a real coin in the middle. Just like this post and comment ‘red’ or ‘green’ and your name will go in the draw which will take place TOMORROW NIGHT (Monday 20th April at 8.00 p.m. GMT) This is open to all countries so get commenting. Sharing is not necessary (but it would be nice!) As always, this has NOTHING to do with Facebook but is a giveaway to thank you for following my work.
Congrats to Sherry Ramirez from USA who won our recent 10,000 hit giveaway – her box is winging it’s way across the Atlantic as we speak!
Sorry it has taken so long to post my latest giveaway!! I did say it would mark the 10,000 hit but I see we are way above that now! So the box I am giving away is one of my favourites lots of colour, interest and can be added to with a special quote or name. All you have to do is EITHER comment on this page, COMMENT on my Denise’s Boxes / Denise McDowell Art Facebook page between now and next Wednesday night – I will remind you again!! This is a world wide competition and I will pay the postage as a special thank you! So you have NO excuse not to enter!!
Heading to the next big milestone in ‘Denise’s Boxes’ – only 60 odd hits until I reach 10,000 – and when that happens there WILL be a giveaway!!
