Back to blogging

Hello, it's been a while, and as one of my new year resolutions was to start blogging again I really need to show a little of what I've been up to.

Well, firstly lots of collage, many of my pieces found their ways to various parts of the world. Australia, United states, Germany, France as well as all corners of the UK. I will always be hugely thankful and appreciative of all those who love my artwork.

Here are a couple of the many that flew to new forever homes near and far over the past months.

I also was very busy making lots and lots of little bird mosaics using old vintage China and paper clay. I approach these as  a sort of collage. The elements all being glued and assembled. The inspiration this year has been all the beautiful birds in my garden, which is full of trees and sheltered spots for them to hide.

And now?

Well a fantastic month long trip to India in November means I'm full of inspiration. India is so full of pattern and colour. I even visited a paper factory in jaipur to watch paper being made and posted a whole stash back to myself.  Already it's being put to good use!

I've also had some dear little visitors to my garden. This was taken through my studio window.

So with that I'll show you what I'm working on atm.. just a detail, but it shows me messing around with gesso over torn paper. A new effect I'm trying to make seaside waves.

So that's all for now. 

See you soon. X
