Vintage fairies…

girl8

My latest artworks are a set of vintage mixed media fairies.  They incorporate lots of mixed media and layering techniques and each one has kind of evolved on its own… This is often the way for me, where the faces just emerge from the page through the process of drawing and re-drawing. Some days this flows really easily and some days there is no flow and I work on backgrounds or collage or just simply work in my sketch books. I think there will be six girls in this set and although each one is different, they all share a…

In transition…

blog

I have been out in the garden today building a nature sculpture out of onion seed heads, foraging, and seed collecting. The sunshine was bright and I notice how I welcome the rays on my bones. So, beautiful autumn is here and I am thinking ahead of ways to keep warm this winter…   My partner and I decided to get creative and ponder how we could change the way we live in our house both to keep warm and conserve energy. Last winter we saved a fortune just by heating one room instead of the whole house and we…

So, no art for a while…

Hazel Tree Ogham

I lost my direction for a while and could have, but didn’t panic about it… It’s all happening exactly as it’s meant to be happening and I needed to take a break from art.

journeying

I haven’t shared my story for the last few blogs really as I have been hibernating and feeling quite private. But I am feeling wonderful most days and know it is because I am living my authentic life by following my artistic path. Oh, it’s not quite what ‘the man’ intended, and indeed he must be rather dismayed at my lack of income and tax offerings… and I won’t deny to you that letting go of regular wages wasn’t a scary step. But, that was the only part that I felt stuck to. I knew a long time ago that…

Loving painting again…

So many paintings on the  go right now I can hardly catch my breath. And it’s taking me in all sorts of directions. I am fluid to my creativity and try to allow it to flow, not worrying about where it’s coming from, or why… so just keep on painting. I wake up each morning and look at work on the go, then just create… if stuff needs finishing but my creativity has other plans I just have to go with that… I suppose at first I did feel a need to finish stuff, but I am realising it doesn’t…

Christmas Fairies debut at shop in Leicestershire…

Winter Fairy III

The new Christmas fairies are now available from the cute little shop just opposite Bradgate Park in Newtown Linford. Just next door to the post office tea rooms; ‘Dog Rose‘ sells a variety of carefully sourced items as well as gorgeous hand-made gifts. It also welcomes dogs and gives its four legged visitor free treats! We attended a Christmas preview evening tonight where we enjoyed wine and yummy mini mince pies! Thanks to Andrea for her lovely warm welcome and enthusiasm. The shop is open Wednesday to Sunday till 5pm except on Sundays when they close at 4pm.
