Paint and blossom

Hello dear friends, This week has seen a dramatic change in the seasons, the blossom came out and the storm raged through. It made my paintings quite moody and textures with dashes of light shot through. So I thought I’d just share a few pics from this week, as it’s been all about the blossom […]

Sleep, rest, paint.

As an artist it can be daunting when creative block happens, it’s like suddenly bumping into an invisible wall and not knowing or seeing how to get over or around it. As a woman I’ve noticed that my creative blocks nearly always happen on the fourth week of my cycle, I can pretty much set […]

Styling my ceramics.

Hello, it’s always a tricky one photographing the products you have made but I have found my way out of the white box and gone more for lifestyle shots when I’m shooting my pieces, it also feels less sales sales sales in your face, I hate that. I always do my best to make sure […]

Festive floral flat lay 

Hello, We awoke this morning to heavy snow. I’m not one for the cold or wet so I decided to spend my snow day Sunday drinking lots of tea and styling a little festive flat lay. I made a moody backboard using a canvas board and acrylic paints. It works really well against wire fairy […]

Walking in the fields.

  Since getting Purdey, our new puppy two weeks ago I have not stopped, there has not been much time for photography I can tell you. I can’t wait until she’s old enough to take over the fields. I love this shot of my daughter walking through the corn fields last year! I can’t get […]
