Sunday, 15th: Semester 1 Completion

To say I have finished my first semester brings me the greatest joy! The course of the MA so far has been tough (a lot harder than anticipated) but through all these opportunities to explore and experiment, has only led me to want to experiment more. Also, the website has had a little re-vamp so…

Tuesday, 10th: Grey Petals & Tainted

It’s always the way that when you have the time off to paint, you produce rubbish, but when you have very limited or rushed time, you produce masterpieces. Today was an off day (in both senses of the word) allowing for me to try an attempt at an idea I have been contemplating. I’ll show…

Wednesday, 4th: Masquerade

It seems that when deadlines are around the corner, I tend to struggle with my work ethic more so than any other time. I have been working on a couple of paintings without much considerate production, and I am massively falling behind with other aspects of the course. The last minute adrenaline needs to hit…

So pretty much came home from work and painted solidly, like a woman possessed (or simply obsessed).  I am going to try and maintain a balance between figurative and abstract, so just wanted to try concealing the swans face within the feathers, but without putting as much detail into the feathers. I wanted to keep…

Pug deliveries. I am so impressed that my canvas arrived less than 24 hours after I had ordered it. Sometimes I believe I am on the corner of the earth in absolute solitude so far away from everything and everyone and then I get a little surprise like this. My work in progress piece from…

Being told to do what you like is a backhanded token of approval. Sort of – “do what you like but don’t say I didn’t warn you”. This is how it feels sometimes, but in a way if the same idea is persisting and won’t go away quietly, or any time soon, then perhaps it…

Sunday, 3rd

I realise the day is far from being over yet but it’s getting fairly dark, ish, meaning I’ll have to pack up the paints for now. I have tried painting with mediocre lighting and in the morning the colours look nothing like what I thought. So really,  I am being super efficient. I have done…

Saturday, 2nd

A blog post every single day for April wow I am impressed with myself. I can’t see this carrying on for very long truthfully. Its always best to start things with good intentions though. So this past week has been struck with some bad news. The mind, to me, is the most powerful tool we…

Thursday, 3rd

Hello and welcome to my new new new blog! I have created a wondrous playground via WordPress that consists of pages containing art work past and present, a little information about myself as an artist as well as a means to contact me. Have a look around and don’t hesitate to tell me if it needs…
