Having spent so long lately using my travel journals and art kit it’s been a while since I really played in my studio journals/sketchbooks. I’ve been making a concerted effort to fill all of my started books including my dedicated studio ones.

When I paint I’ve been adding media to these pages to both use up existing paint so it doesn’t go to waste and create some interesting experiments in mark making, shape, colour and composition:

I am so close to finishing this personal journal that I started way back in 2013. It has been a mixture of journaling through my moods, both good and bad, to a place to experiment away from the pressure of ‘getting it right’. I try not to judge anything that surfaces in this particular journal, whether it be thoughts or images, many of which are ugly to my view but very important to my practice.

Lately, while I have still been journaling more traditionally in it, I have noticed abstracts really coming through again and helping to steer me back towards my passion and interest as an artist. It may not look like much but these pages are super important to the development of both my practice as an artist and my personal development and growth.

“My heart, it bleeds all over the bed.”

My Heart is a small, original mixed media painting on canvas measuring approximately 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges. We have all experienced heart ache in life, that feeling that our hearts are haemorrhaging life blood, crying their own tears of pain for a lost love or opportunity. At one such point in my life this is the raw painting that surfaced from it; dark, textured, patchy and filled with interest from the layered ‘bandaging’ beneath to the wire and garnet areas that spring forward from the heart itself.

This original mixed media painting is available to buy from my website.

“What does it look like to get lost in spring? Green of course, with hints of colour and light breaking through.”

 I love spring, the colour, life and new growth after the long cold winter is warming and energy giving. This is what spring looks like to me, so many fresh hues of green, growth for the sake of growth; natural, chaotic and yet with dots of colour and purpose as spring flowers bloom. Allow yourself to get lost in the energy of spring.

 Lost In Spring is an original mixed media painting on canvas measuring 8 x 15 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges. It has been painted in acrylic and shimmers in areas with gold highlights. Smooth orange/red flower beads and black seed beads have been added for a splash of different colour and texture against the layers of green. It has been signed on both the front and back.

This original mixed media painting is available to buy from my website.

Various prints of this painting are also available from my Redbubble store.

ATCs 11 - 13

The scanned image doesn’t really show off the texture in these three ATCs but textured they are. I had a lot of fun with these playing around with modelling paste to create some random textures on the small cards. Once dry I went with a combination of yellow, pink and red watercolour washes to add colour to the bases and then ink bordering to help the miniature abstracts to ‘pop’
