Bognor Coastal Art Trail runs in various venues across the Bognor Regis area, over the first two weekends in July. This preview exhibition held at POP!

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”

Happy Christmas

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”

Drawings & Giclee prints

Among paintings for sale at Clifton Road Gallery, I have mounted original drawings and Giclee prints available. The drawings have been taken directly from field sketch books and show my art process; mark making, composition, perspective, line, space and interplay between objects. Plan to make more drawings available for purchase in the near future. IContinue reading “Drawings & Giclee prints”

New exhibition

Craft Cabin, Bognor Regis

Finding new venues to exhibit and sell is often a challenge. I’m now additionally selling my small paintings at The Craft Cabin, Chalcraft Lane, Bognor Regis PO21 5TS. A lovely, unique creative venue, full of crafters and artists selling their work to the general public.

Refreshing exhibitions

Always important to refresh your current exhibitions if you get a chance. Prevents your display feeling stagnant to potential buyers who have come along more than once. Sometimes a balancing act because you don’t want to take a painting off the wall that has attracted someone to come and visit again; but if your showContinue reading “Refreshing exhibitions”

Norfolk Road art display

My artwork is in a window display for a couple of weeks, at Jan Bennett’s Norfolk Road art studio. Love this little studio and the fact that the window is available to all in the community who pass by.

The last thing I want is for this post to be really negative but I think it’s important to be truthful and honest with oneself, in order to move forward and plan positively for the future. Selling one’s artwork is difficult at the best of times but in the present climate, unless you already haveContinue reading “Gallery & selling”
