At this time of year lots of people start planning new routines to get themselves organised. Organisation is key to being successful in any business. From years and years of being a teacher, where every second of our lesson time and indeed our free time was precious beyond belief, I have 30 years of time management and organisation skills honed to a tee. There is a myth that creative thinkers are chaotic and disorganised… though I’ll admit that part of my need for planning and organisation has definitely stemmed from my years of being a teacher and now they are serving me well in my years of ..read more

How to take risks; I'm mixing it up.

Every single business book I have read has talked about risk-taking. Encouraging future entrepreneurs to take the leap and to  commit yourself to the glory that lies ahead! And every art book kind of does the same thing...  As an artist we carefully learn about colour and composition, we study the masters, we perfect our craft then you read a book and it says chuck all that knowledge out the window and take risk. It's mind boggling. Anthony Robbins suggests "If you want to take the island; you've got to burn the boats" The thing is, contrary to popular belief about ..read more

"Arteon"; a stag print. I'm often asked what is  the difference between a print and an original. Sometimes the quality of a print is so good, it looks like an original. What do artists even mean by an original? So this blog is here to help.  Don't let the terms artists and galleries  use put you off buying something you love. Here's my guide to help you understand exactly what you're buying. Printing processes are so sophisticated now that if you've seen one of my prints, you'd be forgiven for thinking they are paintings.  So I thought it was time to explain what's what ..read more

When I went on safari in Kenya last year I took two luxury sketchbooks with me and filled them up! When I returned I showed an artist friend of mine. She loved flicking through the pages and looking at the sketches and watercolour paintings inside. Her young son, also a budding artist got so inspired when he saw my books she begged me to create a printed version. ​ I was leading up to my solo show, "Into Africa" and I simply didn't have time. But she suggested that I created a printed version that was completely unedited. Basically like a deluxe photocopy of all of both my sketchbooks put to ..read more

Get your paints out and come and join me in painting a beautiful bunny. I have all the resources you'll need right here! I have a resource photo courtesy of pixabay. I have created an outline sketch for you to copy or to trace. Print off the outline, then simply rub a soft pencil over the back of the outline sketch. Then carefully turn it over and rest it onto your watercolour paper, or thick cartridge paper. Follow the outline with a nice sharp pencil. This will force the graphite from the opposite site onto your paper, giving you a nice outline to work from. ​ Alternatively, if y ..read more
