updating

that’s such a weird word, ‘updating’ … does it mean you are upping your dating game or dating above your station … Anyhoo, I am frantically working on my final assignment pieces for the course I’m doing at the moment with OCA (Uni for the Creative Arts) … and it’s taking up a lot of … More updating

Changing direction

I have been toying with the idea of totally revamping my work and, by extension, this website over the past couple of months. I am going to be severely editing / deleting posts – so if you have liked or commented on something in the past, please accept my apologies if that post you were … More Changing direction

Opposites attract

I was walking the dog last week and came across my first poppy of the summer – i just love how electric the reds are set against the green of the grasses.  Hope you’re all having a lovely summer (if that’s your climate at the moment!)

Tussen Takk

Ah Norway … what a lovely part of the world, wish I could have stayed another month or so. Whilst in Bergen I visited this gallery and purchased a print :   (Reproduced with the artist’s permission) Thank you Ketil Kvam for making such delightful art. Needless to say I am going to be looking … More Tussen Takk

How did you get where you are? For all you professional artists …
