​This is another painting that was shown at the Mandell's Gallery show.  Fortunately for me it resulted in a sale. :-)  Although my posts have been sporadic at best, I have been busy at work. As many of you know will be aware, our life has been fairly chaotc over the past 17 months with the re-build of our house after the fire in february 2014.  We are now about eight weeks off completion and an agreed move in date.  The positive side to all of this is that the fire has opened the opportunity for us to extend my studio.  Consequently, it has been difficult to post here on a regular basis (i.e. I have to elbow my husband off his laptop as I have no internet connection).  I do have a lot of new work to share with you, so thanks for holding on in there!

Blue and White Carafe

This carafe is such a hardworker for me and features in quite a few of my still-life paintings.  I so enjoy painting it....  I'm pleased to say this pastel sold at my recent show at Mandell's gallery, Norwich.

Highly Commended

I am delighted to learn that 'Builder's Break received a 'Highly commended' at the Armed Forces Art Society, Mall Galleries, London.  :-)

Earl Grey Tea

Earl Grey was one of the paintings in my solo show at Mandell's Gallery in March this year.   It remains unsold but it is still available through Mandell's gallery in Norwich.

I am delighted to have these three contributions in the current edition of 'Artists and Illustrators' magazine :-) 
Despite my absence from the blog I have been busy.. (lots to show) 17 months after our house fire we are still busy with the re-build, which means I do not always have access to the computer to upload my images or write my pieces.  The studio is being in the process of being extended and the contents: easels, plan chest etc are all under tarpaulin.  I will have a brilliant space in which to work once everything is sorted but patience is astill the order of the day!
