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!

Selling one’s artwork is difficult at the best of times but in the present climate, unless you already haveContinue reading “Gallery & selling”
Well we now start a new year, and face head-on new challenges and adventures. COVID-19 is still here and growing as I write, and UK is now no longer a member of the EU. The gallery and craft shop I sell through cannot open because of Tier 4 measures. So I now have to concentrateContinue reading “New year, new challenges”
Whilst taking some time out, I acknowledge the hardships that people are going through at the moment, and not everyone is fortunate to enjoy a safe, relaxing or happy Xmas.
