Recent Artwork

These are the first two pieces of art that I have done as requests. I’ve been very privileged to do these. I really enjoyed doing them and I hope that shows in the work. As always, thank you for taking the time to look 🙂

Mini Art Journals

Over the last few months, I have been making little art journals, following a tutorial by Jennibellie. These mini journals are essentially hand decorated painted paper with collage, doodles and other embellishments.

Art Journal Update

Let me say it straight up, I’m not a daily art journaller, I’m lucky if I manage one art journal page a week. I do write in a journal every day but it is just writing with bits and bobs stuck in that remind me of the day or cards I have been sent by friends. My art journals are for experimenting in and sometimes I can start a piece and not finish it until weeks later. Anyway, here are some of my art journal pages from the last 3-4 months; they are mostly faces, and the text around them are mostly quotes or lyrics from my favourite songs. Lots of inspiration and influence from Effy Wild and Tamara Laporte…thank you ladies xxx

Painting Faces

The last few weeks I have been a bit preoccupied with painting faces. In the past, drawing or painting a face was always difficult for me, because I strived to make it look realistic, which was a bit dumb really…(a) I have a camera to take photos of people, and (b) since when does my other “art” look realistic?

In this heart

In this heart lies for you
A lark born only for you
Who sings only to you
My love
My love
My love

– Sinead O’Connor

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with hearts lately…drawing them, painting them, collaging them. I like creating the shape of a heart, freehand, quick and spontaneous, and then filling it with colour, texture and pattern.

Flower Collages

I have been rather tired lately due to my medications so I’ve not been able to get out much, or at least anywhere that warrants taking photographs. Instead I’ve kept myself busy with various art projects – collaging has been one of these projects and I have been preoccupied with making little flower type ones for cards, which I thought I’d share with you today.

Squiggles and blobs

I have never seen myself as an artist in the traditional sense of the word, but I have always enjoyed playing around with pens and paint, especially at school and then when my children were small. Although I’ve never really stopped making things, since last Christmas, I have increasingly been incorporating some form of “artwork” into my daily life.
