My friend who I did the special painting of earlier this year, of her depicted as Mother Nature, very kindly sent me this message today about an artist friend of hers who she had recently shown the image to, and she very kindly shared this feedback to me about it… Hooo !!!!Waow waow woaow !!!!That […]
I had great fun designing my new business cards, so when they arrived today I eagerly opened them to see how they looked. And they looked as good as I hoped! New address, new area, same artist!
I thought I’d learnt a lot about art, and painting in the years I’ve been doing it.. I didn’t think there was much I didn’t know about it. But I have recently, in the last couple of weeks, learnt that there is a new technique that I was unaware of. When I was shown it, […]
Its been such a busy last few weeks but I can start catching up with my blog now with updates. After most of my life living in the Burton on Trent/Derby area I have moved to Kent. Its been almost seven years of wanting to do that, and planning it, and now I am finally […]
An eagle eyed friend of mine sent me this a couple of weeks ago.. it was from Repton Parish Magazine and a thankyoue letter from the man I never met, who I did the commission for of St Saviours Church Interior, in Foremark, South Derbyshire.
I have been asked over the years to do some very interesting commissions for various clients, but one of the most difficult ones was asked of me recently. A friend of mine who I have done artwork for before showed me a tattoo design that her friend had, but didn’t like the artwork so much […]
Well… going back into the dark recesses of time my new webmaster suggested that I start writing a blog to go along with the new website he was designing for me. “But what shall I write????” was my immediate reaction.. and would anyone be interested was my next thought. I know a lot of people […]
A friend of mine who has commissioned artwork from me before sent me some ideas yesterday for an idea she has for a tattoo design. I had no knowledge of it until she had sent me the details of the images she likes and how she wants to incorporate them into a piece of art, […]
I adore the house I live in, its full of south facing light, and ticks an awful lot of boxes of what I look for in a home. My husband loves it too, and described it as an “elegant house” when we first came to view it some years ago. Its known laughter, and its […]
At the weekend I was chatting to a friend who has commissioned me to do artwork for her before………who asked if I could redesign something for a friend of hers…to make it something else. She showed me the design, on her phone, and I had a sharp intake of breath. Because I liked it. I […]
I was chatting to a friend over the weekend who is thinking of a painting to go in her lounge, and asked me if I could do it for her, and how much will it cost…? I asked what the image was of, and she told me, I asked what size she wanted, and she […]
I’m so looking forward to creating new artwork later on this year… with some great ideas!
I loved doing the pen and ink drawing of St Saviours Foremark, Interior, and delivering it to the client last Friday. I loved it when she rang me on Sunday night asking me to do a copy of the pen and ink drawing just for her, the same size (11 x 8 inches) but inframed […]
When I finished the drawing of St Saviours church interior and delivered it to the client who had commissioned it on Friday last week, she was delighted for it, and said the person who it was for would love it.. and then after a bit of conversation about it, she said wistfully that she would […]
When I was asked on Monday to do the pen and ink drawing of the interior of the church of St Saviours in Foremark near Repton in Derbyshire I knew I wanted to get it done as quickly as I could for the client. Although there was a deadline for the day the picture was […]
