Vintage Roses

I haven't done an oil painting in quite a while. It was great getting back to basics again with these roses.

Small Paper Doll Collages

4 New collages I made for an exhibition at a friends house. I am thinking of bringing out a stationary range with my collages images. Think the colours and designs could work well.

New Studio

I haven't been updating my blog for a while, but there is a valid reason, in fact an astounding reason. After years of working on my diningroom table and having the house in a terrible mess I am finaly getting my own studio. Yeahhh!
I have been pestering my poor husband for a space of my own and at last he fell for the idea of converting old garages at the bottom of our property into a studio for me. It is taking much longer than we thought as we are not using contractors to do the build, but a local builder and his 2 helpers. The electical and plumbing work we are doing ourselves.
After 8 weeks most of the building work, roof, plumbing and electrical work is done. This coming week the ceilings are going up and painting will begin.
I am counting the sleeps until I can move in!!

The old garages we are converting

Here you can see the veranda and the new studio kitchen

Almost there... The roof is on and all the plastering is finished. Will post a photo of the finished project asap.
