My work can also be found on Facebook and Instagram. Take a look if you fancy seeing what inspires me...
I am teaching a beginner lino print workshop on Saturday at @pegasusartshop and wanted to put a simple step-by-step guide together for people to take home. So I needed to do a super simple demo to illustrate things. My tendency is to over complicate, so instead I set myself a strict time limit to curb my over detailing. So this was a super quick (and very wonky) print but even then, the results of simply printing something by hand proved to have some charm. What’s more it’s just so much fun!
There are no words 😍
I’ve lived in these parts for over 12 years and yet I’m still discovering so much of Stroud each year. I love it more and more, and the major work that has been done on the canal makes such a difference. Lunch in my favourite @upperlockcafe too. A good Saturday for sure.
My younger two gate crashing the end of my 8 yr old’s art class with @alisonvickeryartist at @pegasusartshop . She’s really enjoying it and although we do lots of art at home, Alison is giving her the chance to do so much more than I would get round to doing with her. A still life of a real fish, for example. Not something I would ever have set up on a random Wednesday after school!
It’s lovely to have my @soapfolk packaging complimented all the way from America :) #Repost @thehareandthehart ・・・
A new shipment of @soapfolk organic soaps just arrived straight from the Cotswolds in England, and the shop is smelling so lovely! We adore the packaging designed by @susiehetheringtontextiles (and we always save the wrapper to reuse in creative ways). We’ve added two new scents to our offerings, so please do come in to see (and smell)!

Another bird on wire photo. I’m sorry... I like birds and my view has a wire, so I’m repeating myself yet again :)

Dreams... y worry?
Advice I should probably live by on the canal today.
My eight year old daughter just pointed out something halfway through this lino cut. “Mummy, but when you print that it’ll be the wrong way round”. She’s right! I’ve been SO tired lately I forgot to flip the picture before I drew it.
What an idiot.
I will be starting again. This one will go in the pile of lessons learnt.
Clever daughter... I think I might need to hand over the family ‘business’ and let her do it properly!
