Getting Back into my Blog!

Hi all!

Recently I have been doing lots of art but unfortunately haven’t been using my blog. This is about to change! I am so glad to be getting back into my art and I am looking forward to posting regular blog posts on my new ideas/illustrations and artworks!

Here’s a couple of pieces I have been working on the last couple of months:

magical midnight meeting, painted on a large thin canvas

fairy floral bliss, painted on an upcycled wooden wall hanging

There are plenty more that you can see, which are available to purchase in my etsy store here.

It’s been a while!

Hey everyone!
It’s been so long since I made my last blog post but a lot of things have changed in the past couple of weeks I’m surprised I’ve kept up myself! Me and Jamie have decided to move back ‘home’ so he can pass his driving test and get a car, and so we can save a little money to enjoy ourselves while we’re still young! It was a very hasty decision but one we’re really looking forward to. We have been non stop packing and organizing for the move which will be happening the weekend so I haven’t had much time to create. However, my head has been bursting with ideas and I can’t wait to settle in and start mapping all my ideas out. Fortunately I have a week off work next week to do this, as well as get ready for the Craft Fair I will be doing on the 19th of May in Stourbridge.

Other than packing, I have made progress with my reading challenge. My challenge was to read 100 books this year, and although I started a month and a half late I have managed 27 so far. I am currently reading a book called Heartsick by Chelsea Cain.

….I also managed to do this one painting, which will be up for sale as soon as it gets varnished! It is called ‘Floral Fusion’

Hopefully I can start regularly posting again in a few days time, once everything has been sorted out!

New Listing on Etsy; A Mother and Daughter’s Love

A new painting called ‘A Mother and Daughter’s Love’ is now available in my Etsy shop. It is perfect gift for Mothers, not just for Mother’s Day!



Spooky Friends; Art of the Week

This weeks post is a little late (by a few days) as I went away to see my friend Katie. I decided to pick my ‘Spooky Friends’ original canvas painting in relation to my trip, as Katie is one of the best friends in the World.

Spooky Friends is painted on 20×16 inch thin canvas and textured in the usual ripped and crumpled card, paper and butterfly stencils. It is painted in acrylic and emulsion paint and varnished with a protective glossy finish!

This painting sold in August last year, and have also done two similar commission pieces! Commission pieces of this design can be done (but they will differ slightly!) You can also get a small copy in my Etsy shop, which is in the form of a blank note card here!



Isabel Adonis; Artist of the Week

Tall Terraced Houses 2, by Isabel Adonis

Isabel Adonis creates beautiful and colourful original works of collaged art. I would describe Isabel’s work as vibrant, unusual, and whimsical, and like many of my other favourite artists, never fails to make me smile whenever I see a new piece. She has been successfully selling  her artwork for about 3 years, and it is all *very* reasonably priced for the effort she puts in and the amazing creation you get in return!

The reason I love Isabel’s artwork so much is that it reminds me so much of my own, yet it is so different. I think the way in which we think about our creations can be very similar at times, and it’s nice to have that connection with a fellow artist. We’re similar in a way in which we love to paint women, girls, flowers and houses ~ loads of things that are based around our first passions, our home life and the different feelings and vibes surrounding that.

We’re Glad it never Rained today; Art of the week

This week I decided to pick one of the first paintings I did that I actually felt proud of. It is currently not for sale, but still hanging up on my living room wall. I think this is one I will keep because it represents a change in my style that I am glad I found.

It is 12×12 inches and painted on thin canvas. The canvas is textured as usual in ripped up paper, card and flower stencil. I have used some Shakespearean and musical note paper. Since creating this painting I have used my patchwork girls in a couple of other paintings, and hope to use her many more times in the future.
