Hey guys! You're probably so bored with my endless apologies for the hoooooge gaps between posting, but I am genuinely sorry for being such a rubbish blogger! Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post. My only excuse is that I've been really busy lately, as I'm working this year as an Artist in Residence at Swansea University, which is great! I have my own studio space to work in, which makes a nice change from my tiny bedroom in my tiny house!! And it's so nice to be in amongst that creative atmosphere again! I've also been working on some gallery pieces and a commission. I finally got around to changing the appearance of my blog aswell! I think it needed a bit of sprucing up! I'll probably change it another 10 times before I'm happy with it! :)

Below is a piece that has been accepted for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the mall galleries in London. It opens on November 13th so I'm hoping to get up there and see it! All the entries will also be shown in the online gallery that will run alongside the main exhibition. It's a little bit different from my usual style, I painted it mainly with gouache which I've never really used before. The original, entitled 'When', measures around 15x15ins and it's in a lovely heavy white-washed wood frame. I did try and get a good pic of it framed up but they all came out fuzzy!

* 'When' now belongs to a lovely little girl called Ruby :) *



I also had this piece accepted for a local exhibition called Works On Paper at the Elysium Gallery, Swansea:

It's drawn on crumpled vellum and it's slightly bigger than A3. I've been really enjoying working in pencil lately, you can achieve so many lovely effects. Here's some other pieces I've done recently in pencil:

'Pick Me' - Pencil on cartridge paper , approx A3.


'Where Next?' - Pencil and digital


'The Escape' - Pencil and digital

Hmm, I think that's everything! I'm off now to visit all your lovely blogs! :)

Good to hear that things are going well. I was wondering what had become of you. Everything looks just lovely, including the new blog look.
I love the background and the new banner is so sweet.
