Inspired by Interiors

INSPIRED BY INTERIORS Hello again. I know it’s been a while since I wrote anything here, so I thought I’d update you with what I’ve been up to. As you might already know from my news page, I’ve been having building work done in our house over the past few months. This meant that my […]

Summer in Salcombe

SUMMER IN SALCOMBE It’s been a while since I’ve been able to get into my studio to work because it is currently stacked floor to ceiling with boxes! We are re-working the whole of the ground floor of our home in Lewes at the moment, and my studio is full of all the furniture and […]

Snowcats!

SNOWCATS! As you may be aware if you are following me on Instagram and Facebook, I am taking part in another charity auction event called the Brighton Snowcats. I, along with around 25 other Brighton artists, were given a paper mache cat to decorate with our own artwork. I was quite excited to be taking […]

Back in Salcombe

BACK IN SALCOMBE Well here I am back in Salcombe and I just love being here so much! There’s something wonderful about being here out of season, because we get the beaches to ourselves. Perhaps it’s because I spent many happy childhood holidays here that I tend to feel childlike as soon I return? I […]

New work for 2017

NEW WORK FOR 2017 I’ve been very busy making new work! I have lots of projects on the go and so I thought it was time that I told you about them.   I am preparing to go back to Devon to replenish the Galleries there with new canvases. I’ve so enjoyed making some new […]

For the love of trees

FOR THE LOVE OF TREES There are two views of trees that I’ve grown to love so much, that I’ve spent hours studying them and then eventually drawing them. Now finally I am creating a series of tree prints of my two favourite views: The first is called “The Dryad Trees” and was a view […]

Evolving

EVOLVING My style is evolving. I like it when it happens so naturally, without even realising. I noticed that with my new pieces of work I was putting together for my new exhibition in Laughing Dog gallery (in Brighton Marina – for the month of June) that I was using more colour than I’ve used […]

In my studio this week

IN MY STUDIO THIS WEEK… So this week I’ve been cracking on with finishing the commissions I had left. I’ve been really enjoying embroidering details onto the three canvases which are views of Praa Sands and Hendra beach in Cornwall. It’s so satisfying to turn a drawing into a unique piece of artwork with applique […]

Retrospective

RETROSPECTIVE Since coming back from my fabulous week in Salcombe I’ve unfortunately been stuck in bed with a virus and a flare up of the Fibromyalgia. However, I’ve managed to keep myself entertained by looking back at my old work and the progress of my unique style. Back in 2003 I had finally got back […]

And now something completely different

AND NOW SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT (a retrospective) Since arriving back home from our stay in Salcombe I’ve been laid up in bed with a virus. This has given me time to reflect and to trawl through old notes and sketchbooks… and so it was while I was doing this, that I stumbled across something that […]
