From Design Studio to Home Office…

These current times are challenging and adaptability a necessity. Although 2022 is my year to further develop the design aspect of my business I am not quite there yet, hence the exchange of easel for laptop, of coloured paints to coloured highlighters! A little greenery has found its way into my temporary office space too.

Where I fund my art!

I have been an administrator for as long as I can remember, it has paid the bills without putting pressure on my creative pursuits. I am grateful to be able to combine the two.

My little green friends who don’t talk back!
My Plein-air Office where I breath…
The Garden Studio where I make a mess!

“A Son’s Love”…💕

I couldn’t resist painting this beautiful bouquet, a surprise from my son on Mother’s Day. I have been pondering lately just what my ‘signature’ style is. Even after all these years of painting (almost 25) I still very much enjoy experimenting with a variety of mediums. When it comes down to it though it’s the ability to explore colour, draw in a gestural way and impact energy and positivity into my work that time and time again brings me back to soft pastels.

A close up of the layers of colour and gestural mark-making I so enjoy. Below a slideshow of the stages to the making of “A Son’s Love”.

Thank you darling…xxx
