What am I working on Right now?

In my studio in South Gloucestershire I am busy with a number of projects

  • Some new small lace and fabric still life paintings
  • A long content  video course: a demonstration of a fabric painting from start to finish in multiple modules which will be available to purchase online (for a moderate fee as it is my first long content video) See here for the first preview.
  • Teaching: workshops are continuing in my kitchen and are great fun
