Artistic harmony in wood

Artistic harmony in wood

We moved to Kent just over a year ago and ever since then my husband has wanted one particular garden project doing. It was his big dream and I was more than happy to go along with it ..but its taken just over a year to get it actually sorted out, even though we started […]

Most important of commissions

Most important of commissions

I never expected when my husband and I thought we start on the revamp for our lounge in the new year that it would linger on into June, six months of redecorating, plastering the end wall and getting rid of the ceiling beams, buying new light fittings, buying new furniture, waiting weeks for it to […]

The best not quite that I’ve ever seen

The best not quite that I’ve ever seen

During the Coronavirus lockdown which is still ongoing, I am not expecting commissions to come in, or much interest in art, which I don’t mind, as it gives me chance to firstly concentrate on my garden projects, and secondly to paint whatever I feel like painting, as there is always a long list of artwork […]

Painting with locked down nature

Painting with locked down nature

The Corona virus lock-down that started towards the end of March continues. Its been over four weeks now. No one knows how long it will last. We all know that hundreds of people are dying on a daily basis, the hospitals are doing the best they can and the rest of the country is doing […]

Self isolating means..

Self isolating means..

I have no idea how long the self isolation will mean regarding the Corona virus. It only started a week ago, and various reports say three weeks, thirteen weeks, six months. Its going to be a long time, either way. Not that I will be bored either way…because I am an artist, and artists paint. […]

Arty connections making the difference

Arty connections making the difference

About the time that the Corona virus was stopping everyone going out, and Facebook became the way most people communicated and caught up with their friends, my name came up as a recommendation from another artist friend to show ten paintings of mine, over a ten day period, and recommend ten other artists to show […]

How things change

How things change

A few weeks ago, it was just a few words on the radio news…involving a country far away that was affecting people I didn’t know in a city I had never heard of.  But fast forward to this month, March 2020, and now it’s here and affecting people I do know. And its affecting me […]

Colour creating through nature

Colour creating through nature

It’s so nice to get back into writing again for my blog. I missed doing it when I was in the process of buying this house now in Kent, not that all the jobs are done on the house and garden by a long way, but they are on the manageable level…rather than the urgent […]

First snows

First snows

It snowed today, for the first time this winter since we moved to Kent. I know that the Midlands has had various snow falls and flurries over the winter, but we haven’t had it, only relentless rain, sunshine, cold winds, and more rain!  But when it snowed, I was immediately transfixed into seeing how it […]

In her proper setting

In her proper setting

Over the weekend I saw the woman I did the “Warrior girl with her wolf” tattoo design image for last October and she told me she wanted to commission me again, but this time to create THE artwork. I wasn’t surprised to hear this as she had mentioned a few weeks ago that she actually […]

Oops sorry nurse!

Oops sorry nurse!

I saw a friend of mine over the weekend..who  made me laugh over a tale to do with something that I was connected with…. He told me that recently a district nurse had been to visit his house to see his wife. Whilst she was there talking to his wife, the guy suddenly realised what […]

Bobbing to the surface again

Bobbing to the surface again

I’ve sold a lot of artwork over the years, to various people all over the UK and some to other countries including Europe, and America. All my paintings have had a lot of hard work put into them, all of them are part of me. Some are instantly memorable, some I have to think about […]
