Learning some new painting techniques 

Today was spent in my artist’s friends beautiful garden learning some new painting techniques from artist Marc Dazie Hulme who was kind enough to take time out to help us achieve some new ideas. My finished artwork shows Crazy Horse ascending to heaven, with animals joining him on his journey. I have used some stencils and collage too to build the layers. 

White B Gallery

I have been working on White B gallery today which is in my back garden. It is mostly recycled from wood and found objects from the local area. I have also been working on my new colouring book outside and occasionally dead headed  few plants. What a fantastic day 

Its been a busy few days

Its been a busy few weeks, with the open studio event, two exhibitions and a street art event. Not to mention creating stock for my other business Wolverhampton Gifts. I am now creating a colouring in book which will include iconic landmarks and buildings from my home city. Its been great researching Wolverhampton and I’ve found out so much I didn’t know. Such as one of the Ripper victims was from here. Also we have the third oldest church bells in the world. We also executed traitors who were part of the gunpowder plot. Hopefully I’ll be able to show you some of the book next week. 

Kaleidoscopes, part of my Faith series

These artworks are part of my kaleidoscope paintings in the faith series. I have used many mediums including oil on canvas, ceramic, collage and mixed media. I will be using thread to create pattern next. 

On location

I am going to explore other avenues to making art, rather than producing work on canvas and framed prints. I have been on location with my artist friend Jennifer Gollings, who is seen here in the black hat.  We are collaborating to make a stop motion film, which we have found out can be rather time consuming. Here we are planning the route of paper boats to the canal and spiraling some feathers to create patterns.
