Happy New Year

Wishing you all the best for the New Year ahead!
It’s been a successful Christmas for us and we have thankfully all stayed well.
This year I am planning on creating lots of lovely new work where and when I get a chance. My second child Olly will be 2 in March and Toby 5 in June. They are so lovely but as a full time Mum take up most of my hours in each day! I do my best to create around them but feel over the next few years I will be able to grab more time for myself and my work.
Thank you for all the support and to everyone that has purchased work from me over the years. I can’t describe how worthwhile it makes my life feel when something I have created goes into someone’s home to add colour and interest to their homes. X

Commissions

I’ve recently completed a few commissions which I really enjoyed doing and it’s always exciting to see the end result. I’ve just started a large scale piece (the biggest canvas I have ever worked on) I’ve put down the base colour and now I’ve got to add the detail and floral foreground which I love doing the most. X

New paintings

View from Salcombe Hill

Lyme Regis

New paintings for Azure in Sidmouth –

3 new paintings include Lyme Regis, view from Salcombe Hill and the cliffs in Sidmouth.

If you haven’t seen my work before I create bright and colourful paintings using thick acrylic paint, a mixture of brushes and a range of palette knives. My loose style mixed with some closer detailed elements creates colourful & energetic versions of some of my favourite places. My paintings can be found for sale at Azure Gallery in Sidmouth where they seem very popular. The gallery have recently started supplying prints of the originals artworks.

Otterton Mill in Budleigh Salterton have been selling a range of my work, including cards, coasters, placemats and paintings for years and I have enjoyed keeping the stock up to date and new for the local customers as well as holiday makers. It is lovely to have a good relationship with the shops and galleries that I work with.

These independent shops are well worth a visit and it is so important to keep using them so we don’t loose them like many of our local shops and high street stores x

Thank you for all your support x

Dog portraits

I’ve painted about 45 dog commissions on these wooden disks as hanging decorations. They’ve been really fun to do and I might continue to offer this as a service after Christmas. I have now run out of disks but could still do portraits on acrylic paper or canvas if you get your orders in within the next week xxx

Delivery to Azure in Sidmouth

I’ve been creating a few new paintings for Azure over the last few weeks. The red cliffs in Sidmouth are very popular so I keep painting variations of the lovely coastline often with lots of flowers and people walking their dogs. I’ve also been working on some new sailing boat designs which will be making their way to the gallery next week. Happy shopping xxx
