While I was away….

So I haven’t posted since June! Sorry about that, but packing up for an international move proved more time consuming than I’d hoped. I’m now back in the UK after 14 years away (this time!) and it’s hard adapting to the weather! And to a country which although my “home”, I have only lived in sporadically for the last 37 years and it’s quite a culture shock.

This is my first attempt at a blog post so please forgive me as this is a giant learning curve for me. I don’t anticipate that I will be able to blog every day, but I start with a promise for at least attempting to blog once a week. My blogs will be about my art and those painters who have influenced me most in my life. I will share how I create my art and my greatest hope is that it will inspire you to pick up a pencil or paintbrush and “have a go” yourself. Read more
