I had great fun designing my new business cards, so when they arrived today I eagerly opened them to see how they looked. And they looked as good as I hoped! New address, new area, same artist!
Its been such a busy last few weeks but I can start catching up with my blog now with updates. After most of my life living in the Burton on Trent/Derby area I have moved to Kent. Its been almost seven years of wanting to do that, and planning it, and now I am finally […]
An eagle eyed friend of mine sent me this a couple of weeks ago.. it was from Repton Parish Magazine and a thankyoue letter from the man I never met, who I did the commission for of St Saviours Church Interior, in Foremark, South Derbyshire.
Well… going back into the dark recesses of time my new webmaster suggested that I start writing a blog to go along with the new website he was designing for me. “But what shall I write????” was my immediate reaction.. and would anyone be interested was my next thought. I know a lot of people […]
A friend of mine who has commissioned artwork from me before sent me some ideas yesterday for an idea she has for a tattoo design. I had no knowledge of it until she had sent me the details of the images she likes and how she wants to incorporate them into a piece of art, […]

I’m so looking forward to creating new artwork later on this year… with some great ideas!
When I was asked on Monday to do the pen and ink drawing of the interior of the church of St Saviours in Foremark near Repton in Derbyshire I knew I wanted to get it done as quickly as I could for the client. Although there was a deadline for the day the picture was […]
I was asked a few weeks ago to do a painting as a gift for a woman I know, who was having a big birthday coming up. She had no idea that the painting was being done for her. I was asked to paint her as “Mother Nature” but a sexy and elegant version with […]
This is an additional extra post
This is a test post. Not sure what the problems are
The eighth painting I have done for the Happy Garden theme was based on a photo I took this year but changed considerably to create a more appealing garden to the one in the photo. I love the round pool, and the rounded topiary shapes of the bushes, and the twisted spirals, which gave me […]
Its difficult to get enthusiastic about painting when its blowing a gale outside…
