It has been a long time coming, but I have now finally put together my new artist website – with my new married name and current artwork! It is still being populated (a work in progress) but I am very happy with the way it is looking – and I hope that you will sign… Read More My Final Post on here….
I’ve been quite quiet recently as I’m busy creating a new website – which will be more of a portfolio type site – a bit more official looking! I’m really excited about this after having a blog now for a couple of years – it feels like the next step for me. I’ll post here… Read More New website coming soon
For me making art is all about having fun, by experimenting and playing. If I do the same thing for too long I get bored and want to try something new – I’m not great at sticking to the same way of producing something (although I think I am developing more of my own style… Read More Trying out lots of new things
One of the reasons I have been very quite blog wise for the last few months (since August!) is that I was busy getting married (alongside developing my business) – but our honeymoon to New York and New England was a great source of inspiration! While my husband was busy taking snaps of all the… Read More Inspiration – New York and New England
Some of my favourite colourful pictures from the last few weeks. You can never have enough colour! These ones were adding colour into pen and pencil drawings in my old sketchbook…. These are from my new sketchbook which I started last week (I do like a nice empty sketchbook to play with!)…. And this one… Read More Colour colour colour and more colour
Today I challenged myself to see what would happen if I painted for more than 30 minutes! I would like to do it for a whole day, but I’ve got to start somewhere with it. I started off with an entry in my art journal – taking a piece of old art work from a… Read More An experiment …. what happens if I sit down to paint for 2 hours?
Continuing on with the art journalling / collage theme I have been doing some more daily sketchbook pages – which I’m loving. Plus it’s making me do more during the day as well. Here are some of the results from the last week, and I have decided to try taking photos of them with my… Read More Work from the week – having lots of fun with colour and responding to old art work
It still surprises me where inspiration comes from – and that inspiration doesn’t have to directly affect what your art work actually looks like, but more often it is more about energy and motivation and wanting to create. Exhibitions and spaces I wasn’t sure about going to a film installation at the old BBC buildings… Read More Inspirational blogs, Instagram and paint splats at the BBC
I’ve been having a go at art journaling – mostly inspired by various people I have seen on Instagram. It isn’t something I’ve done before, and I haven’t used words so far, but just starting from some items – bits I’ve torn from magazines that I find visually interesting, and also torn up bits of… Read More Art journaling
I’ve been doing far too much painting and drawing to put it all into my blog over the last few weeks (which I’m so chuffed about, although I’m not sure what to do with it all exactly). And my creating session yesterday afternoon was a particularly good one – playing around with layering of different… Read More I love when things all seem to come together
