Delicious Burlesque Auditions

Much fun was had this Saturday at the Delicious Burlesque newcomers auditions by myself and my events partner in crime Scarlett Daggers.

I was kindly asked by Jules of Heresy n Heelz to take part in selecting the final 8 performers who will compete at the final Delicious event in July. My co- judge was the lovely Kittie Klaw of the Ministry of Burlesque. It was a very hard job judging as all the performers were very strong, after much debate and lots of sweets and cream eggs we decided on 8 ladies who we felt performed burlesque in its truest sense and who entertained us the most!

A big thankyou to everyone who took part, I was thoroughly entertained all afternoon and I hope I'll see all of you on lots of event line ups to come!

To the 8 that made it through I can't wait to see you again at the big event!

Charlotte Thomson Artwork now showing at Cuadros Gallery Nottingham

I am thrilled to announce that my artwork can now be seen at Cuadros gallery in Hockley (Nottingham). Cuadros is a brand new gallery displaying gorgeous and unusual artwork from local and international talents. You can see my work alongside Jon Burgerman, Banksy, work from top tattoo artists and my current favourite discovery Tim Lee, a macabre genius!

Cuadros will be exhibiting pieces from my Masquerade collection – Including “Masque Moon”, Masque Rouge and Masque Diva, plus my newest pieces “Grande Grotesque”, “Let them have Cake and Eat it” and “Glamourous Grotesque”, previously only seen at Danse Macabre exhibition.

For all of you who greatly miss craftsmanship and practical artistic skill in contemporary artwork, this gallery is sure to make you feel a whole lot better. Traditional media and techniques abound but with a truly modern and refreshing style and outlook. Much of the artwork has an illustrative feel with all of the artists on show a master of their chosen media – whether that be spray paint, acrylics, mosaic tiles or ink.

A mini exhibition of Tim Lees work will be on show in the gallery this month so join us for the private view (my work will be on display too) on March 25th – 5pm – 8pm. RSVP to Good company and incredible artwork guaranteed!
