100 day project

So I’ve decided to take part in the 100 day project on Instagram this year with the theme of 100daysofmixedmediaflorals

I’m undertaking the project in the hope that I can find at least 10 minutes each day to do something creative and give me some head-space from real life! Also hoping that I can create some work which will form the basis of a series which I hope to get in my Etsy shop by the end of the year.

But 100 days is a long time! I’m planning to explore four different colour schemes along the way (more about those later) and so I’ve made a prompt list of 25 image titles which I can use to help me create my mixed media collages. Hopefully this way I can stay motivated and not get stuck!

Here are the 25 prompts I’ve come up with. I thought I’d share them in case anyone is also in need of inspiration for their own 100dayproject. I’d love to see your work on Instagram too so do come say hello!

Brighton Artists Open Houses

Delighted to be exhibiting as part of Brighton Artists Open houses every weekend in May.  I’m taking part at Bluebell Would Artist Open House which is open 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 26th, 27th May 11.00 – 17.00.  The work is up and really pleased with how it looks.  There are lots of other great artists exhibiting at 45 Westbourne Gardens Hove as part of the West Hove Arts trail, you can see the full list here

Would be great to see you there!


That time of year again!

Where has the time gone!?  Well, a lot has happened this year (hence the lack of updates on the website) but I’m delighted to say that I’m taking part in the fabulous ‘So This is Christmas’ fair at the Charmandean centre in Worthing again this weekend – Sunday 4th December.  Come along if you can and say hello! New notebooks, notelets and some new original pieces will be on the stall plus there’s lots of other great stalls too x



Stop press!

I am delighted to share with you – my work in print!

The lovely Be Creative with workbox magazine approached me way back in the Summer to contribute to their magazine and of course I accepted.  It was a challenge putting the text together – why is it that writing about yourself is the hardest thing to do?!  But I’m really pleased with the final outcome and the images look great on the 6 page double spread….and my work is even featured on the cover!  A fantastic early Christmas present!

Speaking of presents…if you know someone into textiles and looking for an inspiring Christmas gift (or just to treat yourself) a subscription would be great!



So this is Christmas!

Well, it’s been a busy few weeks!

In the middle of moving house I took part in the Fairy Tale Fair Christmas fair in Worthing.  It was well worth it!  Had a lovely day selling lots of prints, notebooks and a few orginal pieces.  The atmosphere was great with the town crier keeping us company and a silver band playing carols.

Now back to unpacking boxes….. and completing my new commissions!
