Eleanor Tomlinson celebrates the opening of her first permanent gallery space in the heart of London at The O2 with a star studded party.Soukra at The O2, London www.soukra.co.uk is now the London base of the East Yorkshire artist. Eleanor’s work is available to view at scale on the vast walls of Soukra’s stylish interior.


The venue will also be used for exclusive workshops and other creative events. Officially licensed products are available to buy.The first workshops are taking place only a month before the coronation of King Charles III. Eleanor released her eagerly anticipated piece, ‘Coronation Capers’, last month at Freemasons’ Hall in London receiving worldwide media coverage.

This big career step for the northern based artist comes following a monumental year in 2022 which saw two of her artworks featuring HM Queen Elizabeth II go viral, before a third Royal themed piece featuring Emma the pony and two of Her Majesty’s corgis reach £32,000 at a charity auction last November.Eleanor’s sudden worldwide fame and demand for her artwork has led to this opportunity to offer a morec entral venue for admirers to view and buy her work whilst she works from her studio in rural East Yorkshire.

The artist is hosting various in person creative events at her O2 Gallery at Soukra, bringing her two greatest passions (art and food) together to create exclusive experiences and workshop days with the help from Andrew Eborn President of Octopus TV and Hamdi Abid and Sanj Nandi of Soukra. This is the first time Eleanor has brought her best-selling workshops further than East Yorkshire and nearby North Lincolnshire.

Eleanor is passionate for others to learn and embrace various artistic techniques to release their inner creativity.“I believe everyone has a creative side, it just needs to be encouraged and nurtured. Creativity can take form in so many ways but it’s through play and experimentation whilst having the support and encouragement to do this that everyone’s hidden flare can come to the surface. My workshops promote bringing out the best in everyone’s abilities, no matter their past experience.

”These various workshop experiences are purposefully created to welcome all levels and ages within a friendly, supporting setting led by Eleanor. Providing 1:1 tailored guidance, full materials and a creative community. Eleanor’s workshop days are set amongst a gallery backdrop of her various ink and watercolour works. Her very first workshop date 10th April (Easter Monday), 10:30-4:30 with lunch and refreshments throughout went down a storm with Eleanor’s first attendees. This initial group varied from regular hobbyists to those who had not picked up a brush since school, all thoroughly enjoyed their day, learnt a host of new skills and left the day with one (if not two) completed wildlife pieces.
