Met a lovely life model today for our figurative drawing class.
Come and join us on one of our courses!
So I have been quiet because I have been busy!
1) the boy who will be 7 months old next week, amazing!
I could spend all day watching him learn the world! The greatest time consumers!
2) The Little Art on the Green, more details next week
I have started an arts school!
The Arts School will start running day courses in Drawing and Mark making and Reflective Practise. Come and spend the day on a beautiful farm in East Sussex. 60 acres of woods, fields and lakes. A delicious lunch is included, provided by Sam. So excited! A few spaces left for our intro day on July 8th and confirmed dates to follow!
The Postcard Project, as part of The Little Arts Festival, closes at the end of this week.

You can now buy my canvas painted cards from Limecross Nursery!
A while ago I saw a shop in Lewes called Popsicle and was in love!
“Live life in colour” is the text on the door of this shop, and it’s wonderful, vibrant owner Sharon does just that.
I am really excited to be exhibiting a series of paintings on the shops display board in the Needlemakers cafe.
Please check out the shop, the cafe, and my work and let me know what you think.
Have a wonderful, colourful weekend!
