2018 – The Arts School

Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted and the reasons good!

The Arts School is up and running and I am loving teaching again! Now we start the new year with lots of courses and a new teacher working with us teaching watercolour (Jo Hudson).

Come and take a class and hopefully enjoy it as much as our past students (and we) do! www.theartsschool.co.uk


The Arts School – the start

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

And 3) 

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!

Wonderful woods and paths

The best part of getting dogs is having to take them for walks everyday and finding these wonderful woods and paths.

Edited on snapseed, and Unedited photographs, taken with an iPhone 5 on a morning walk through the woods near my home.

Sunday strolling on the common

This morning I took a stroll round my local common and it was wonderful! There is so much nature and beauty and it reminded me to take time to appreciate it!
Here are a few pictures, London in the sunshine rocks!






Pheasant shooting and Snapseed experiments

Went out today to try to capture a magical tree, but alas the weather is not with me! Going to try one last time at mid day! But it wasn’t a complete waste of a holiday morning as I did get a few shots, that I have been playing with using Snapseed, a free photo editing app.

Thus far it seems pretty simple to use for little experiments. Think you could make some interesting gift card images or photoscreen print images using apps like this.

If anyone has advise on other iPad apps to use please let me know! And as always, feedback is greatly appreciated!
