Catherine Bhogal Cwtch My Art was set up in 2015 selling original colourful floral & landscape artwork. Now, in 2016 I have launched a collection of home accessory products as well as fashion scarfs inspiredfrom my original designs. I exhibit and sell in the Uk as well as Internationally.
My work is sold online through my own website www.catherinebhogal.com as well as some gallery online stores; eg. Artfinder and online stores such as Gift wrapped and gorgeous. I am now selling in galleries in Rhondda Cynon Taff and hope to add a few more to my bow soon. I am actively out and about in the community selling at local Fetes. My next goal is to offer workshops, so watch this space.
Why Welsh ICE?
I choose ICE as I was impressed with the 5-9 sessions as they helped me put my business plan into action and from attending I noticed quickly how my business was progressing. Being accepted with ICE 50 was great news and I have moved on so much since the time I started. The office has opened doors for me that I would never have considered if I had not had a place at ICE. I am currently working on a collection of work for my first Trade Show. This came about my networking at ICE and learning to take the plunge.
