…and the excitement is nearing its peak!

When, as the artist, you have designed the detail of the ‘look’ for a wedding right from the first ‘Save-the-date’ down to the last announcement board and jar of flowers, the anticipation in the preceding week is almost as heightened as that of the Bride and Groom themselves. When the artist is also the Groom’s […]

Seascape…

Moving into a new ‘old’ house, one that is a project, to say the least, is an amazing “blank canvas” opportunity… Yesterday I began and completed a giant wave across three canvases to make a huge wall-filler for the bathroom… Pretty pleased with end result… emulsion, chalk, tempera powder and acrylic paint.

Outside in…

Work had begun on the three 8×4 foot panels to enhance the outside space at The Rectory – a very special care home catering in a unique way for dementia sufferers, however it was not destined to be completed during the winter months! Cold and dampness put paid to the previous rapid progress, but not […]
