More from my Sketchbook....

Lovely scratchy, scribbly fineliner permanent ink pen for Christmas from my daughter....unforgiving to draw with at times, but very good for practice work and fast sketching I find :). This is the same drawing twice, but I tweaked it a little in my phone, just to see....

have a heart...

wishing you love and peace this Christmas and always x

Fowey Show....




I am so proud to be exhibiting this weekend at Fowey Show once again. Now in it's 5th year, this is a highly prestigious show which is very well supported and attracts visitr's from all over the world. The whole of this gorgeously picturesque fishing town gets involved-carparks are free and there are shuttle buses from all of the venues running every 15 minutes if you don't fancy the stroll-although I have to say this is such a pretty place I love to stroll the old fashioned streets, expecially when all the shops and buildings are decorated for Christmas!. Carefully selected local artists (including yours truly) and craftsmen sell a huge range of handmade unique gift items along with Cornish food traders, Carol singers and thousands of visitors. If you are in Cornwall this weekend this show is NOT to be missed! Come along and say hi!

New ACEO designs available now!

New ACEO designs currently available in my store now-please CLICK HERE for more details!

What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are CREATED and traded or sold by artists. All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )

ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.

WHY NOT BECOME A COLLECTOR YOUR SELF OR BEGIN A COLLECTION AS A SPECIAL GIFT FOR A FRIEND TODAY-THE VARIETIES ARE ENDLESS!
