Not long now before Swindon Open Studios 2015! There is still loads of things I need to do before they get going-which will probably mean lots of late nights.

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery
Bath Road, Swindon SN1 4BA

Here is my invitation to come and see me-

Hope to see you during the tour!

Excitement Over SOS 2015...

Hello,
With only a few weeks left till Swindon Open Studios 2015-here are some updates:
There has been some articles in the local paper highlighting a few of the artists participating this year-
To promote this years' tour, some of Swindon's Old Town businesses have generously given space in their windows or walls to showcase an artist involved. 
I was very excited when James of Minuteman Press accepted four of my pieces in his shop yesterday.  He even helped me set up! Here is a photo, if you are in the area stop in and take a look. The artwork will be there till the 14 September. 
I will post more updates soon.
Bye for now.

Still Here...

Hello,
Sorry for the long absence. I've really been struggling to find time to create as well as blog about anything while working full time. So now that the summer holidays are here and I have 5 weeks off from work, I can have a bit of time for myself. Yeah!!! I've been trying to get back in the swing of creating again, so part of that means tidying up my studio in order to "create more messes". My husband laughs and rolls his eyes at me every time I say-"I need to clean the studio". 
I've also been working on resolving some pieces I want to display during the SOS 2015 in September. But more on that in my next blog post. Below I have some "doodles" I did recently, using a black gel pen on white and cream coloured pastel paper. I've been inspired by all those adult colouring books out there lately. 




Thanks for stopping by.
Bye for now.

New Abstracts

Hello,
Here are some new abstract paintings-acrylics on watercolour paper. I thought I would experiment with a limited palette of neutrals with a punch of colour here and there. Not sure if they are finished or not...



Bye for now.
