Returning to the Studio

It has been a long time since I have been able to spend time in my studio.
And it has been a long time since I have blogged; however I am now back.

After our travels it took a while to settle back into the swing of life.  We had to catch up with all our family, get the house and garden back to how we like it, visit friends, etc and just be.

Whilst I absolutely enjoyed the travel we did last year with all the fabulous experiences, all the interesting people and the exceptional art that we saw; it feels so good to now come back to my special place, my studio.

studio-oneAs with every craftsman, whilst inspiration and innovative ideas are necessary, your work is only as good as your tools.  Therefore I have undertaken a huge revamp, repositioning my workspace and the public Gallery space in my studio.  It now works so well and I think I have got it right, my perfect working environment!

Peter has been wonderful and a great help to me with everything – cleaning, moving and updating equipment, offering suggestions of placement to achieve optimum results, etc.

Let me know what you think of my revamped studio.

I have so much inspiration and I feel the need to commence.

I also have to start making more pieces for my retail outlets again.

So I will have much to blog about along the way but first I must PAINT.

New work

I have decided to indulge my fascination with texture.  I use whatever feels right at the time, pieces of paper, material and whatever else catches my imagination.  I  have been having such fun and look forward to where ever my new journey in this style takes me.

My new works are full of texture, depth and colour and my new pieces are all abstract in nature.

A lot of these pieces have been painted on recycled timber.   I love to recycle wherever I can and I use pieces of found driftwood and old pieces of furniture. I also use pages from old books, pieces of material, broken zippers and whatever odd pieces I discover.
