Tree of Life Inspiration

Working away on my 'other job' and inspiration that crosses both my worlds struck!

A Tree of Life created from dancing joyous limbs...

When all is well in my world and I am cycling home from a day of painting, filled with inspiration and creative contentment, this is how I feel!

... I am itching to turn this into a painting.

My clever client came up with the initial idea ... Love it when my worlds cross.

Beautiful Angel Art

I have fallen in love with a jeweller's work - Robin creates exquisite angel pendants. Each has it's own meaning and message - just divine. 

I feel this one singing to me as I seek to unlcok more and more of my creativity ...
'Angel Kiara keeps the Keys'

And this one - it's called 'Angel Lauren opens her Heart and Soul' - what a talented lady!

Robin hangs out here
and here

Butterfly Transformation paintings are up in my shop!

It was an exciting day today. I picked up my paintings from the photographers, managed to get them home on the tube (imagine how happy the commuters and sardines were at the sight of my A1 art folder whatsit!!!) and have got their photos in my hot little hands.

They are sitting in my shop, dreaming of transformation and beauty...

Seasonal flight

Every year as winter descends on Europe, it reminds me of a bird drawing a huge cloak over the land ... of icy tendrils and frosty breath. And then Spring comes and pulls back the veil to reveal a kaleidoscope of colours and vibrant life.

I have spent the past few weeks in Australia and thus missed winter rolling over in its sleep and beginning its transformation into spring. When I returned and walked through my garden gate, it took my breath away.  My wintering garden of browns, greys and skeletal twigs had magically become an eager frenzy of life and colour and abundance.


In a wild dance and dash of watercolour and salt crystals I have tried to capture this feeling.

Art, daffodils and wine along the canal

What a gorgeous success our exhibition was! Such a diversity of talent and a constant flow of visitors coming to our island, I was very proud to be a part of it. We had a rocking opening party and the weekend passed in a blur of interesting conversations, croissants and many cups of tea..

It was lovely to share our little piece of paradise and wonderful to get feedback and comments.

Art needs the vitality of being seen and rubbing up against life and humanity otherwise what is the point of it?!

I haven't talked so constantly and smiled so much to so many people since getting married! I awoke this morning with aching cheek and a happy heart. How blessed I feel to have a studio in such a magical spot. My little Aladdin's cave...

The next exhibition will be weekend in June as part of the London Open Studios. Better get cracking!
