I have to sit back for a moment and look at how things have taken a massive leap for me. I am so incredibly busy and I am very lucky that people are prepared to wait to own some of my work. It is so inspiring for an artist to know that there work is desirable and so gratifying to know that you make people smile with your creations.
I am so grateful that so many of my commissions come from existing clients, either because they want more work done themselves or because they have shared their portraits and brought me more new clients. There is no greater compliment and I hope that never stops.
Today’s drawing is of a lovely dog who won a competition run by the Romford Recorder to promote the London Pet Show. The prize was a portrait by me. I find that quite exciting too
This is Chelsea
She is a Jack Russel/Dalmation cross and just beautiful.
The owner has also asked me to record each stage of the drawing so she can display the entire process, not just the finished result.
Wow! It has been such a busy few weeks and some technical issues mean I have not posted much on the progress front. I will rectify that soon.
Yesterday my friend Michelle Marsh and I set up our first joint exhibition at The Brading Roman Villa. I am so excited as it is Michelle’s first show on this scale. We met my first year on the Island when i did Open Studios and she visited me and we have become firm friends, sharing our love of art and learning a lit from each other. She is a great artist and a great friend.
Here is a taster but really you should just come and see us!!
If you have not been to the villa before come for lunch, it is fab!! We are there all this month so plenty time to come and see us.
