Blue and white china

Hello, I love old blue and white china! Ever since i was a little girl I’ve been drawn to cabinets full of the stuff, sourcing old willow pattern teacups from boxes of china on the floor at car boots. Hence my latest collection and the inspiration behind it. It sold out in record time soContinue reading “Blue and white china”

Watercolour Sketches

Hello, I’m off on a solo painting trip to Suffolk in October, I’ve found a cute little barn to stay in and I’m just going to walk and paint. I want to travel light so instead of packing big canvases and my oils I’m going to be taking a limited watercolour palette and paper. MyContinue reading “Watercolour Sketches”

I’d prepared a dark base for another painting (see it in my last post) then woke up yesterday and thought nah, I fancy doing something free. So hence this new piece… Always Comes Light. Completely out of the darkness. TheContinue reading “Always Comes Light”

Letting Go

Hello dear friends, work has been somewhat confined to my head of late. I think with the pandemic and change of life I’ve felt a little out of sorts… same as everyone else I know. But then the sun came out and the garden started to burst with life and I suddenly just felt theContinue reading “Letting Go”
