My first ever market stall was a big success yesterday at The Post Box Cafe Market in Chorlton, Manchester. It was a shabby chic affair – more chic than shabby! There were jazz singers, kittens and sangria in the sunshine. I’m launching a new range of feline flavoured cards which you can buy from markwallisdesign.com as fine art print greetings cards or framed prints. If you’re in Manchester, why not call in at the Chorlton Art Market to buy a card or a print in person.

New for April, Blooming Summer – a hazy, sun-dappled collection of greetings cards. Featuring flowers from a sleepy church in Norfolk, to a baking hot allotment in Chorlton, these dreamy images are hand made, blank inside and come in packs of 4, 144 x 144mm with square envelopes. Available here at Mark Wallis Design or why not pop into the Chorlton Art Market Hub shop in Manchester, where my framed prints are also available.
I’m very proud and excited to be part of the Chorlton Art Market Hub, where I’ve just launched the Mark Wallis Design stall. Selected framed art prints of my work are now available exclusively here, along with Spring and Easter greetings cards. CAM Hub is an independent small business in south Manchester, UK which has fought against corporate red tape to defend it’s patch in a richly diverse town full of creativity and character. If you’re in the area, and feel like brightening up your walls this spring, pop in and check out the wide range of wonderful arts and crafts and cards. There’s also some very colourful vintage clothing for summer.
