What do you give the woman who has everything?
it was my mothers 80th birthday in March so I painted her portrait with my daughter, the reference photo was taken on a holiday four years previously.I have found portrait painting a real challenge and highly enjoyable

The world is gripped by social media, we are told if you do not have a good social media presence that you will fail.

How are we supposed to achieve this?  if you are like me I dont seem to have enough hours in the day to maintain the level of media presence required.  I there a way round this? as yet I havent found one.

Facebook used to be the most popular but with their new algorithms in place so you dont get most of the feeds people are getting fed up with it, my last Facebook adverts result were appalling, it has most definitely put me off using them again, I need to find an alternative

Instagram appears to be getting very popular and Is ideal for an artist to show off their paintings but I dont how well it generates sales.

Linked in I have been told is way forward, I have never found it much use in the past but maybe its time to give it more consideration.

I will post my results

When I was a ceramic artist at Boehm China ( Malvern) there a magnolia model, It was one of my favourite models to paint partly because of its luscious leaves, so I thought I would paint some Magnolias in acrylics.  The painting is for sale or you can buy prints from my shop

I woke up yesterday morning and knew I had to paint an Elephant, he seemed to just fly off the brush and on to the canvas, he was immensely fun to paint, I hope you all like him.

Money from the prints of this painting will go to Project Red to help stamp out poaching.

As an artist I am on a constant journey to improve my skills and try new things, for the last few months I am have been on a mission to conquer acrylics as It is a totally different technique to painting ceramics, however I am getting somewhere now and am actually enjoying the process.

I have been painting non stop since the middle of August, when they took the cast off my arm.  Every painting teaches me something new, I am determined to be able to paint all subjects with equal skill.  Once I have gained control then I will venture into abstract art, where it will take me who knows…

Unfinished Zebras
I am hoping to have this finished by tomorrow

I am in the process of developing this website, much harder when it’s your own.

I will be posted news of my work and also documenting my journey with acrylics a medium I am starting to get to grips with but still find  frustrating.

I am sending some artwork to the printers today for a range of mugs, initially two designs the white and orange Lilies.
