The past three months have been innovative, adventurous and inspiring. I travelled to the South shore of Montreal to stay and work. This January I taught a class at Studio du Verre in the copper foil method. My class of seven students were lively and intrigued they achieved a lovely colourful panel each of approx 12” x 9”. It was wonderful teaching in Quebec and therefore in Quebecois and English, we had fun.
I am happy to say I am back in England and have an assortment of commissions and projects in process. Including a new design, a continued project and classes and open days. There will be an article coming out in March from the Surrey branch of the Butterfly Conservation Trust, the ‘Surrey Skipper’ about the butterflies I painted in the window at St Peter’s, Petersham, Surrey near Richmond Park. This is a lovely magazine for all butterfly enthusiasts.
I shall return to St Cyriac’s, Lacock later on in the year to complete the restoration works and repairs necessary. I will post dates for classes soon and hope to see familiar and new faces in the studio. My website will be updated in the coming months and due to demand there will be a page where prints and cards will be available for sale. Exhibitions, open days and arts trails will be advertised as soon as possible.
Much love to all, keep drawing and painting wonderful, beautiful creations.
