“Fish and Ships” is the title of my shared exhibition with stamp collage artist Rachel Markwick currently on at the Amberley Inn Stroud until the 30th October 2017.We have been lucky enough to have sold some pictures already; this one of mine was sold today.

Balancing Act

Currently the ponies painting is a work in progress, it would be great to think I will finish it soon and that (fingers crossed) a space might be made to hang it.

#Animal #Artist Claudia Hahn

I ventured to Nature In Art to see artist in residence Claudia Hahn who is an amazing animal painter.  She uses all sorts of medium alongside gold leaf and bronze pigments and travelled in India on an elephant to capture pictures of tigers for reference.   I can usually resist a purchase but this time I could not walk away without taking home the print below of “Grumpy Old man”.  See this Tiger print below (still in cellophane hence the highlights!). Find out more about Claudia here.

Not Just An #Animal #Artist

When I come across artist websites I do not imagine at that moment that they are in fact defined by other activities as well.  When you come across an Accountant you might also apply the same rule?

As or myself, I am the embodiment of both Artist and Accountant (but from a previous life before children)!  And other stuff that I do.

Spot the difference:

I also design websites for artists and have finalised a transfer of a website I manage to the WordPress platform today for a dear artist friend whose fantastic birds and animal drawings and painting scan be found here. Take a look at another approach to the same subject of animals and birds by Jilly Cobbe.
