Nearly Half Way Through!
We are nearly half way through the year. For those of you who don’t follow me on social media, you won’t have seen the change of style recently! I have developed the ‘Softer Collection’ and The ‘Atlantis Collection’ – with the addition of crystals! They aren’t quite ready for show yet, as two are still with the framer, but they will be part of the One Year On Exhibition in August – full details on the home page.
I’m ready to visit a hotel in Cornwall with several pieces of the softer work, next month and have been teaching creative energy art workshops at The Langford in Fivehead – again, check the home page for full information.
I have a selection of work on show here at Wayside House, with another set at Kitchen Cafe at The Wharf in Langport – so if you are popping in there for a lunch or coffee and cake, keep your eyes open for ‘My Wall’! This is also my chosen venue for Somerset Arts Weeks at the end of September. More to follow in the next news update. Until then, enjoy the sunshine, and pop on to social media for more updates.
One Year On!
I can’t believe how fast things have been moving over the last few months. It’s been a whole year since I officially embarked on this journey into the world of art and set up this other side to my business. A year in which so much has happened.
My style has changed quite a bit – have a look at my Instagram feed for up to date images of new work – and I have moved into slightly larger pieces on canvas ready for my second exhibition this coming summer.
Sales of work over the past year have been all different tones and energies. Some on canvas, placed in lovely limed wood tray frames, with others on the beautiful handmade rag paper framed behind glass.
A spa in Cornwall is in the process of taking some of my work, and I have recently finished a few commissions. Painting specifically for someone is such an honour. Sometimes a little daunting, but most of the time, it’s really exciting because they trust in the energies, and they trust in me to create something just for their space.
If this is something you would be interested in, get in touch and we can talk!

My Debut Exhibition
My debut exhibition at The Langford at Fivehead was a great success. Who would have thought a year ago I would be holding an event like this? Things have moved so quickly it’s incredible.
If you have been a follower of mine for a while, you will know that this is a natural progression from the healing work I already do, but not to worry, I am still working one to one with clients. Both ways of working go hand in hand together. Energy art that holds a vibration and colour to heal, calm and help your journey.
When people took the time to really look into a piece, they could feel the energy and see beyond the paint.
There were lots of questions and fascination with the process I use. I had much more time on the days after the private view to spend talking about the process.
- How long does it take to paint a piece?
- How do I get the little marks on the canvas?
- How do I decide what colour to go with?
- What if the energy isn’t flowing when I need to paint?
- Why is the paper so special?
- Do I paint outside?
- How do I find time to do both jobs?
It’s not just about creating the work, it’s about the process and being able to explain this to others. In a way it’s just inspiring others to follow their own path.
The barn at The Langford is now my gallery as well as a working studio.
View by appointment.
If you missed the actual event, my work can still be viewed but I’m not always there. One of their staff can show you around, but I can arrange to be there for you – it’s only 5 minutes down the road for me! Sometimes it’s good to talk to the artist – I’m very approachable and happy to share my thought process with you. Although often there are no thoughts, just FLOW!
