Time is flying by............


I cannot believe that we are into February already...........  So what have I been up to well.

A friend and colleague left the company I work for so I made her a little keepsake.

Quite simple but so gorgeous even if say so myself.


I decided last year that I was going to run workshops in the North East to enable mixed media artists to come this far "up North" and spend a couple of days teaching. I did one on July and one in November and they both went really well.  So this year I am stepping it up and trying to run one at least once a month.

I had two weekend workshop with Hels' Sheridan as the Designer/Educator booked back to back to run on the last weekend in Jan and the first weekend in Feb.  For them to run seamlessly there is a huge amount of preparation  leading up to and during the weekend.

We had 19 ladies on each weekend. Two  projects that were totally different from each other.  One was  a gorgeous canvas and the other a master board packed with texture. 

Both weekends went really well and I have further workshops booked with other artist during this year.  So all is good.

Just a  photos:

Lots more amazing photos of the art produced during the weekend can be found on my Facebook page

here are some great examples of Art from the weekend

Art Student

I teach the most adorable 8 year old "Art" once a month.  Whatever I show her she just sucks it up and then goes on to make something special. 

This is what she made this month...............

thanks for taking the time to come by and visit.
Take Care & see you soon
