April showers didn’t really happen, pleased to say a good dose of sunshine took its place. I write this with the sun warm on my face, looking at the beautiful colours which spring brings.

It’s been a month of more experimentation, working on mixed media paintings of different sizes and on different surfaces. Layers of paint put down with oil sticks, charcoal and anything else I might think might work in the mix. I like the way it’s working out and bringing  more colour to the work adds another dimension.

Apologies to the people who received their orders late. There was a glitch on the computer which meant I wasn’t being informed of your purchases.  Hopefully this has been fixed.

I’m happy to say the sketch books are quickly  filling up and a trip to London was an opportunity to stock up with lots more. Always a welcome sight to see a pile in the studio, for me it’s the equivalent of seeing the fridge full of all my favourite food.

Until next month keep well and enjoy the colours and warmth of May.

Signs of Spring

February and Spring has started to show itself. Daffodils, snowdrops, blossom all the familiar colours, shapes and smells. This year it seems more exciting, a new beginning a new outlook as covid restrictions are beginning to lift. I feel I can start to take a deeper breath this time, rather than holding it in for fear of disappointment.

Clearing out seems to be most of what I’ve been doing this month, as I’ll be moving home at some point this year. I will remain in Hastings as it’s such a beautiful town and after 16 years it is all so familiar.

On the art front I have started to paint a lot more and will continue with this to see how far I can push it. The new work feels like it is taking me on quite a different journey and I’m really excited to see where I’ll go with it. The online shop will be updated next month with new artwork and there are new local mark making workshops in the pipeline. To be kept informed, please subscribe to the newsletter below.

Sending much support and love to Ukraine.

Until next month keep well
