Balance and Blogs

I have a wonderful friend who makes hand bound books, sketches beautiful things and is all round talented! (last year we teamed up and she made those incredible leather hand-made note books)

Each week she cleverly has a word which she writes or creates about. In her busy life I don't know how she does it!

A few weeks back her weekword was Balance and she chose my painting...


Here is the link to her blog - she is a prolific blogger - puts me to shame!

Painting Butterflies!

In preparation for our two big weekends of Open Studios, I have been painting and dreaming butterflies. Simple paintings of beauty...

They are not quite finished yet ... looking good in my frames so far though.

My facebook address used to look like this

Open Studios in London

'Open Studios'  is coming up down on the island and across south-westish London (loosely the Richmond Borough). It runs over 2 weekends, the 10th -11th and 18th - 19th June. Loads of studios are opening their doors so come exploring.

And for all you lovelies, we are having a private viewing on both the Friday nights, the 9th and 17th, so if you are free come join us for drinkies along the canal!

It would be great to see you, tis gorgeous down there in magical hobbit island arty land this time of year.

For those of you who are interested, here is the link to the global site


which details all the studios which are open across London with a map and titbits of information.
