The Knowledge



The Knowledge is one of my latest mixed media paintings-it has been a long time in the making as it is a large work and I wasn't able to dedicate more than an hour or two at a time to complete it-I actually began this piece last September!
I almost hope to live with her for a little while as I have grown quite fond of her over time,but she IS currently for sale in my ebay store HERE if you would like to view further details!

Blue Angel-mixed media painting


This painting is mixed media and is entitled 'Blue Angel'.
It is created on 12"x 28" x 1.5" block gallery wrapped canvas (staple free sides) using acrylics,graphite,collaged papers(under-layers) and oil pastel.
Lightly glazed with a semi gloss professional artists varnish to protect and seal,the sides are fully painted in soft black so this piece is ready to hang without the need for a frame ( or of course can still be framed should you choose to do so!)
Check out my other listings for other original works in this series.
A very charming and peacefully elegant work,layered with lovely atmospheric shades,and lightly textural for extra depth-this would make a beautiful addition to your art collection!
Signed and dated on the reverse,this is a totally original and unique work.

Currently for sale HERE!

Fiber Art Flower Rings-NEW!



Treat yourself to a splash of summer colour!!
I am quite delighted to be offering for sale these totally funky fiber art handmade flower rings.
If, (-like me) you have a penchant for statement jewellery then these will be an absolute treat for you! Available in a host of stunning colours ( do contact me if you cannot see the shades you are looking for, I am happy to oblige!)
These lightweight flowers are attached to an adjustable silver-coloured ring,so suitable for most adult sizes,easily adjusted to fit you perfectly.I have had so many compliments already wearing one of these,and my daughter (18) has also been eagerly snapping them up, for herself and friends,so they really do appeal to all types and ages!
And the BEST bit??? (other than the amazingly individual style and colours that is!)-IT WON'T SNAG YOUR CLOTHING! I ruin hundreds of tights and cardis each year weariing chunky jewellery-but not wearing one of these!
Truly a one-off this is a lovely gift for someone special or maybe a well-deserved treat for yourself!

A really colourful and appealing addition to your art card collection!

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.
