We're still in house chaos with holes and dirt and dust and boxes everywhere but the garden is filled with Autumnal delights and the house is filled with Bach. I love coming down to hear my lad practicing his piano or cello and Biscuit the stinky hound is always present as the ever appreciative audience. Happy Sunday folks. #sunday #avoidingthechaos #musicians #music #houseofartists #arthouse #kidsandmusic #artsmatter #keepartandmusicontheschoolcurriculum #autumn #sundaymorning #collageartist #midcentinspired #papercuts #biscuithound #parsonsterrier

I couldn't make the march in London today but I am wholeheartedly with the 700, 000 marchers in spirit and praying that this Brexit madness is stopped before its too late. #peoplesvote #proeurope #humanrights #rightsforwoman #50yearspeace #united #bettertogether #freemovement #unitedeurope

A new piece now hanging @kobiandteal in Frome. I left my phone at home so did a quick snap on my partners phone and it's not the best. I shall pop back tomorrow and take some more as this is a beautiful space filled with the most beautiful things. Kobi and Teal can be found at the top of Catherine's Hill in Frome. #exhibition #gallery #somerset #frome #westcountryartist #studioartist #studiolife #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #designemporium #papercuts #gallery #designshop

Jumping in puddles and bringing in the windfall apples from the garden one at a time has obviously been hard work today! #sleepingbeauty #dogsofinstagram #parsonsterrier #studiodog #studiofriend #dogtired #collageartist #inthestudiotoday #werebothshattered #timetohunkerdown #frome #westcountryartist #somerset

I'm still wrapping work up for pre Christmas shows. It's always lovely to be sending works out but equally lovely to flick through this year's rejects and find that some, after 6 months and with a fresh eye are salvageable. This is a large collage that I was battling with, I had been working at it as a figure in portrait but it actually has potential turned on its side. Sometimes we just have to walk away and then come back and look again upside down! #collages #collageartist #papercuts #painting #painter #westcountryartist #studiotoday #studiolife #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #freshtake #resalvagingoldworks #inthestudio #clearing #somerset #inthegarden #gardenstudio #shapesandbalance

These little babies have been tucked away in my plan chest for two years but they're now off to the framers as Nick from @kobiandteal has chosen them for his pre Christmas mixed show. One of the reasons they havent left the studio is because I couldn't decide how to frame them, I don't think they'll suit my usual dark frames and I'm thinking white or even natural wood frames. I can't decide yet but will post them all framed up in a few weeks and you can let me know if I made the right choice. #exhibition #gallery #somerset #frome #westcountryartist #studiotoday #studiolife #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #collages #contemporarypapercollage #collageartist #painter #offtotheframers #littlereds

When the only sunshine is on the table, on the table we shall sit. I love these two, always hanging out together, grooming each other and taking it turns to catch a rat from the compost! Another beautiful Autumnal day and I'm so grateful as this year has taken its toll on me and I'm beyond shattered. Since my builders left I've ground to a halt and so looking forward to some quieter days in the studio. #beautifulday #autumsunshine #autumn #drawings #parsonsterrier #tabbycat#friends #autumsunshine #autumn #sunbathing #inthegarden #busyyear #exhausted #letmebackinthestudio
