Here is my little studio. I have to work half in and half out as it is a little tiny Anderson shelter. I can’t imagine sitting in it to the sound of bombs dropping, must have been terrifying. A lot of my artwork has a camouflage theme and I was lucky to get this studio which has so much history behind it. I’ve added a porthole and door so can work inside when the weather is bad. Hope you like it!
As you may know I like to portray Anne Boleyn in some of my work. Which represents strong women of history. I have just had a tattoo of Anne by a local artist Craig James. I think it’s truly stunning. Well worth the pain. Hope you like it!
I have been working on a new painting for my exhibition next month, this one is based on the alfornini wedding by Jan van eyck. I have used simple outlines to portray the figures. I have used some collage and sanded it down, I will be using napkins that have been taken into one layer to lay over the top to create depth, I am yet to find them so am on the lookout. Hope you like it.
I have been working in (and out) my wonderful Anderson Shelter today. The sunshine was glorious. These two artworks are nearly finished for my exhibition in June.

I’ve just set up my paint spirograph in the garden. Not quite got the technique right yet but I like the effects so far. Have been using these neon bright colours. What do you think so far?
I have been working on a few paintings for my new exhibition. This is an old work which was part of my camouflage series which is painted with the the Fibonacci spiral in gouache.
I am working on a new exhibition which will be held at the Asylum Gallery, which is in Wolverhampton. I am working on several pieces at a time. The exhibition will be called Vestiges of Camouflage. I am re-working several of my old paintings with patterns. I am looking at the wonderful work of mathematician Roger Penrose, who’s drawings inspired the works of M. C Escher, look him up when you get chance, he has made some amazing drawings.
I’ve been working on some new icon paintings with neon colours based on stained glass windows. My husband has made the up cycled wooden frames out of pallets wood, I am going to keep them their natural colour
I have been making some more virgin Mary’s today they take a couple of days to set, I have just sprayed one a fantastic metallic gold and can’t wait to share it with you very soon. For now here are some of the candy coloured ones I did earlier this month
