Workshop News

horse on the moorI have started giving workshops for adults in “Unleashing Your Creativity” in paint which is mainly to help people to know where to start with art. Some participants are total beginners, some make art but often don’t know where to begin and there are some who are already artists but may suffer block or just wish to rekindle the flame.

We use paint  in sketchbooks and on paper and I show ways to open up your creativity from inside – to let your art speak about you.

That’s why this series of workshops are known as “Art and Soul” workshops.

The day is unusually holistic and is not just about painting but includes a mindfulness approach. Everyone says how good they feel at the end of the day.

These workshops run at Newhampton Arts Centre in Wolverhampton in my studio in the Gallery BlockHot House Flowershouses

Please see the WORKSHOPS page for more info on dates etc.

Studio News

I am really loving hiring my studio at Newhampton Arts Centre at the moment. I’ve been a resident there since January and it’s been the best decision I have ever made. It felt like a bit of a risk when I took it on but now I find it a place that I can have total concentration. On the other hand people call in sometimes and it’s a place with a creative buzz.

Being near the centre of Wolverhampton it’s a handy place for a meeting and a good place for me to start to run workshops.

At the beginning of April we had a very successful Art Fair there in the beautiful Victorian Gallery. My room is on the galleried landing upstairs affording me a fine view and the facility of having a little shop front. This is our second art fair and my first as a resident artist. I loved meeting people and chatting to them all in my own smaller ‘gallery’ and I sold plenty of prints and cards. I shall open up on other event days throughout the year. We have a beer and cider festival coming up in June and Paint The Day in July (Pintar Rapido). There’s also a Mods Festival and a Pagan fair later in the year which will bring in a lovely mix of people.

Here is a piece I have recently finished called “In Paradisum”

Farewell

I loved working on this painting in 2014. It was a symbol of a new way of working taking my inspiration from meditation and yoga. 

This week I sold it and let it go. Something I could have found difficult but I make a practice of being able to let go throughout life. It’s a key secret and needs to be repeatedly worked on in every sense. 

Anyway it has a lovely new owner who is very pleased I’m happy to say.
