This week I’m sharing with you a new Sweet Girl painting! She is Yin Yue which means Music in Chinese Manderin, she is sooo cute!
Hopefully I will be uploading a how to painting tutorial for this sweet girl soon, I hope you all manage to paint her too!
Hello! It’s September already! Whoosh that was quick, I hope you all had a great summer and spent lots of time by the sea!! I know I did!!
In celebration of all things Ocean! this months Art For Your Screens features a gorgeous Sea Nymph or Nereid.
She mostly spends her time swimming around the rivers in our capital cities, enjoying the sites and sounds of human urban life whilst remaining unseen, but at times she yearns to see the sea and would love for you to help her get to it…
That is her back story… so cute!! lol
You can down load the file to your collection here
Its always nice to change the displays up once in a while to keep things looking Fresh!!
Hello!!! Long time! I hope everyone is well?
Things have been a bit quiet here but lots has been happening behind the scenes most of which have been documented on my instagram here
But I will try to start a new weekly news roundup for my blog and website. Watch this space!!
So this new painting sort of evolved from an abstract art exercise that developed into a painting about current affairs.
It is called ‘Love in a time of Ebola’ and features acrylic on canvas.. Yes I am now working regularly on canvas!!
The painting sort of just appeared but it started with the eyes.
I don’t know where the Ebola reference came from but it was probably something that I had been reading and thinking about.
The 2 figures sort of look like either space travellers or androids and that meant something to me too.
But art is really about what you see in an image.
This painting is about affection, needs, love, distance, restriction, health, humanity etc etc.

Hello everyone! I hope you are well?
Yesterday I finished another quotes lady!! Whoo! In this painting I wanted to express how often we can look outside ourselves for validation and assurance that everything is ok.
But I think it is true to say that resting in ones self and being true to yourself can offer the best sense of wholeness and security possible.
It can take a lot of work to get to that stage, a lot of people refer to this as ‘The Work’ but I think it is a journey we all need to go on for a more fulfilling life.
I love painting moths! It has been a while since I’ve made a nature painting so I decided to paint a Elephant Hawk-Moth!
The colours are delicious, like strawberry and lemon sorbet, it’s form is so sublime and aerodynamic that I decided to accentuate the lines to create an almost arrow-like shape.
It makes me wonder how many millions of years it took for nature to create something of such perfection. Can you imagine if you or I were given that task??
This will be the first canvas that I am putting up for sale, I am learning to let go of my paintings and offer them to new homes :)

Yay! its May! And time for a cool new ‘Art for your Screens’!
This month we are celebrating the colour Blue! As this is my favourite colour! And Jay-Z’s too so I am told.. :)
This artwork will look fantastic illuminated by your screen, as the colour blue seems to come to life when touched by white light.
The digital file can be found in my etsy shop here
I painted this piece to explore the contours of a female back and also to develop my style of painting that features a lot of ethereal transparency.
I have linked a video below which shows a speed paint of how I approached the construction of this piece.
