Well who knew an online art class could work so well? Had so much fun doing this tonight. Thanks to all who came along. Hope you enjoyed, and a big thanks to Fleet Arts for organising this 💗
Will email you during the week, with some arty videos and info. Will also continue to work on my little arty collage demo.
See you all next week.
Still getting to grips with using oils again, still feels weird without an ink pen in my hand and still taking me hours 🤣
Here's my oily version of Floella Benjamin 🙂 It took me an age to find a none smiley photo of her 🤓

Still a few spaces available if anyone fancies a few weeks of fun online collage with me 😊 Contact Fleet Arts to book.
This Wednesday I'll be running through how I get started with my own mixed media artwork. Knowing where and how to start is easily the hardest thing. With me it generally starts with an idea, a theme, an image or a piece of text. If you want to join in the fun this week it may help if you have your own starting point too.
People always ask me about materials/equipment when I run these classes. My usual answer is, this is mixed media collage so literally anything goes!!! Sometimes I'll just tear, cut and glue collage bits. Other times I'll use acrylics, inks, brusho, charcoal. I'll sometimes use printing or stamping in my work. Fabrics and textiles works well. Three dimensional objects can also add something rather nice to a piece of artwork. I could go on...
So if anyone wants to know a little more, before this week's class, just message me 💗
No pens, no collage, no mixed media, just oils. Which is something I've not picked up for at least 15 years 😳
Really lovely to use them again 💗 Not entirely happy with the finished portrait. It's not quite Samira Ahmed. Maybe her sister 🤔

Due to Lockdown 2 I sadly had to cancel my fun Weds collage class at Fleet Arts 😒
But... The class is back online for 4 weeks 😃
I know online is quite the same, but I'm hoping to keep this class as near to what it was as I possibly can.
So, do contact me if you want any more information and contact Fleet Arts to book your place. 🙂💗🙂
Buying artwork during a global pandemic is very good for the soul apparently 🙂
It also helps out an artist too 💗😎💗
Lots of my recent artwork has now been added to my online store. Original artwork and signed prints. All with free UK delivery...
