Work in Progress

I’m not very good at sticking to one thing at a time, consequently I always have several things going on at once.  I’m currently working on two oil paintings, but I’m also playing around with watercolours and ink sketching.  Organisation for the Frome Artist Trail is underway already, I’m looking to raise sponsorship for the Made in Bradford shop where I have some work on show.

In amongst this there is the family to organise, Christmas and well……you get the picture.  At least life is rarely dull.

I have ignored this blog for quite some considerable time now as I have an excellent website designer, Lee of Design, Develop,Test who is running that for me.

However, I feel a desire to have something I have done by myself but it is not my paramount priority.  So if you are watching this page you will see it changing slightly over time.

For the moment, for my most up to date news check out, or follow me on Linked In, Facebook or Twitter.

What’s happening?

I’m working terribly hard on putting together things for later in the year, Cloth Road Artists Trail in May in Wiltshire; Frome Artists Open Studios in Frome of course; planning other events.  I have a couple galleries who might show my work this summer.  And trying out a few new ideas in watercolour.  It’s all bumbling around my head along with packing for half term holiday, making sure there is enough food of the pets and the house sitter, ensuring the kids have got all they need each day for school.  Phew no wonder I’m tired!  At least I’m not bored.

Invitation to help MS Trust


, , ,

I’m really chuffed to have been  asked by the MSTrust to donate a small amount of work to their Secret Art Show in April.  All work is featured on their website anonymously and then sold to help raise funds for MS.  I’m pleased they felt my work would be saleable.

Shanty Theatre’s Salty Socks of Dunkirk

Purely and simply the best piece of contempory theatre I have seen in a long time.  I enjoyed it, my children loved it and so did my husband.

You can still catch it

Ingleton Falls, Yorkshire

Ahhhhh……….Kids back at school, peace reigns once more, the days are still too short!

We had a lovely end to the summer with a very enjoyable week in Yorkshire with close friends, we visited the Kilnsey Show, Ingleton Falls, Settle, Skipton and stayed in Arncliffe which is possibly one of the prettiest villages I have ever seen.  I managed a little bit of sketching but really the week was just abut being with friends, getting lots of fresh air, visiting the show and well…relaxing.

Sadly nothing else seems to relax while we are away so there is lots to catch up on.  Preparing for the Frome Decorative Arts Exhibition, submitting for BANA New View show in November and generally continuing to stive to get better and better.
