Work in Progress

Just pushing the paint around today, and seeing who emerges. Very limited palette and lots of loose marks and layers to come.

Printmaking Workshop

The fun we had! Basic Printmaking workshop in my studio yesterday!
Fearless students making the most of a new technique and embracing it as their own, taking home piles of inspiring beginnings and ideas. I look forward to running this one again soon !

Sketchbook Stuff

A few images from my sketchbook practise today,I love to revisit older work occasionally, they bring back all sorts of memories from then they were created and ofnte remind of ideas that I had in the moment and didn’t pursue at the time, so a great inspiration tool! These are some faces in a variety of media. Some of these will be developed into future finished paintings and some will be stored as a learning reference for further development.

Inspirational Collections

I am sure most artists have collections of treasure that they keep about their workplace . I think my favourite treasure has to be feathers, there are jars and pots of them all about the place and I love them all!


Mixed media drawing and painting,imperfect, no plans, just playing, experimenting , and giving myself a little time to explore....

I learned a lot last year about balance. This year is about giving myself the time to breathe and create and gather new inspirations....and accepting that whilst it’s good to be disciplined and work hard it’s also ok NOT to be superwoman all the time. With a little self care and kindness inspiration returns and I feel nurtured and keen for more. new design-a prototype , so slightly imperfect, but that’s ok too :-)
