New paintings & galleries

Spent all day yesterday working on this one for the Mulberry tree gallery in Dorset. It was a journey and a half! That sea!!



Also excited to be showing work at the Bedruthan and Scarlett Hotels in Bedruthan, courtesy of the Harbour Gallery in Portscatho. These are heading off there tomorrow...

challenges

Artist. I'm an artist.

I'm also a mum of teenagers, a wife of an ENTP and a good/rubbish friend.

Sometimes find myself clinging to the artist identity more than others. Creativity. Its with me through everything, in the sad and happy times, exciting and boring times, with me to the grave. Its more than just an escape from difficult days, it shapes my every thought and decision.

I'm so, so lucky.

Did these last night - they were looking twee till I remembered to engage my emotions. Sometimes I enjoy the act of painting the land and sea so much that I forget to express.
