Gradually making progress on drawings and paintings. Have been getting ideas together, making sketches and taking photographs of scenes that take my notice and inspire me in some way. I’m currently focusing on the interplay between the man-made and natural, using textures, line and colour. I’ve got lots of ideas from public and private gardens,Continue reading “Making progress”

Christmas & 2023
The Christmas holiday season is a much needed break for many. A chance to reflect on the past year, relax and unwind with family and friends. At the back of my mind I will be planning for 2023, but for me personally, this festive season will be difficult due to losing loved ones; but IContinue reading “Christmas & 2023”
I’m now working in my space, taking my time planning, sketching and studying subject matter to create new artwork. For the last 10 months I have been pressuring myself to create art to exhibit and sell in the gallery, art trails and events. I have realised that I need to take a step back, doContinue reading “Taking time”
I’ve spent the last two weeks moving into a new workspace. I’m finally there, set up and raring to get on with new work. As I am now based in the local university, this is a golden opportunity for me to create new work and new directions, and to develop new partnerships. Please get inContinue reading “New workspace”
New work space
I’ve now moved into a new workspace closer to home. It’s a small but perfectly formed space, in a venue promoting partnerships and business enterprise. Looking forward to producing new work. A new space for a new direction, new ideas and new outlook. Once I’m settled and producing new work, I will be welcoming visitors.Continue reading “New work space”

A very warm studio!
Well, the studio is sweltering at the moment, so on a mission to get some air flow! Spent some time getting some paintings sorted and a bit of studio organising this afternoon.
Not a great start
Our family had an awful start to the new year with a bereavement to someone extremely close to me. This has inevitably had a major impact on my ability to find physical and mental space to create artwork. Some artists can channel grief and trauma through to their artwork, I personally have not been ableContinue reading “Not a great start”
2022 – new year, same challenges
A new year brings fresh challenges but the same issues of finding the right balance between working to pay the bills and creating art work. However this year, I feel I may be able to find more time to create the art work needed for exhibition and sales. I hope the new owners of theContinue reading “2022 – new year, same challenges”
It’s been an extremely challenging year for us all so, like many others, I am taking a break until 2022; having said that I will probably pop into the studio midweek to escape and finish some work off! I have some plans forming for the New Year, although family health issues will take president overContinue reading “Happy Christmas”
