Intuitive Art

Intuitive Art I have been living my dream of being an artist and I have a wonderful art studio which is large and bright and has lots of space to be creative. I have been painting for over 20 years, however just recently I wasn’t really feeling very happy or fulfilled with the art I was creating and I was struggling to find new inspiration and ideas even though I am surrounded by beautiful nature. I tried many things, like simplifying my work to become more abstract, changing the colour palette from my usual colours, and trying to ‘let go’ a bit more to become a bit looser whilst trying to shake off some...

Artful Charity Projects

Artful Charity Projects Over the years I have used my passion for art to raise money and awareness for various charities.  Here are a few photos leading up to the making of the large LoveHugs which are community creations using the simple image of a heart to inspire the works and to get everyone painting.  Look at the fun everyone has !  Anyone who wants to paint a heart makes a donation and the finished canvas is then auctioned to raise more funds, thus becoming a part of art history !

Art Inspiration

Art Inspiration Having been a painter all my life, finding the inspiration to continually make an original and inspired work of art is the most difficult thing of all,  after all without inspiration an artist has nothing. So as I walk with trepidation the relatively long distance from my kitchen where I make the brown nectar called coffee, to my studio where I am meant to make inspired works of art, a sickness enters my stomach. I know today is fortunately, a relatively rare day, where I feel uninspired and uncreative and wonder how any spontaneous arm movements might take place. My studio, custom made to...

Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven Stairway to Heaven This gallery was inspired by Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’ from the Led Zeppelin 4 album. Painted with oil paints, some mixed media, golds and glazes on canvas, these paintings have been exhibited in Granada, Spain at the annual FIARTE exhibition.     Stairway to Heaven Stairway to Heaven The Piper’s calling you to join him Peace – All are one and one is all A new day will dawn for those who stand long Shadows taller than our soul If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow – dont be alarmed now Spring clean for the May...
