Some more little boats underway. It feels good to be clearing the plan chest, there are lots of small unglued pieces which I hope to get completed this week. #exhibition #studiotoday #studiolife #gardenstudio #artistslife #inthegarden #boats #porlockboats #beach #collages #paintings #worksonpaper #worksonboard #smallworks #abstractartist #landscape #seascape #papercuts

Sorting through my plan chest which is full of unfinished pieces and glued this little beach scene which made we want to head south a dip my toes in the ocean. I think a Somerset riverbank will have to do for now though or a bucket in the garden! #collageartist #papercuts #abstractartist #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #mixedshow #painting #collage #paperandpaint #drawings #somerset # Porlock #porlockboats #shapesandbalance #tonal #boats #beach

A blackbird singing and one bouncy terrier. A truly beautiful day here in Somerset. #trees #spring #cowparsley #buttercups #birds song #blackbird #collageartist #walkingthedog #enjoyingthegreatoutdoors #lovesomerset #mells #churchbells #butterflies #

After the busiest few months it was so lovely to take a quiet early morning walk with my hubby today. We dropped our boy off at school laden down with camping gear as he heads off on a week canoeing and took the Biscuit hound off to the fields of Mells where it was little short of paradise. It's going to be strange not having my boy around, whilst my husband is away a lot with work this is only the second week my son has been away from me in 12 years! I'm sure it will be good for us both.😕 Wishing you all a bright sunny day 🌝🌸🌻 #mells #somerset #earlymorningwalk #birdsandbees #bugs #butterflies #moths #birdsong #cowparsley #buttercups #englishlandscapes #englishcountryside #springatitsbest #walkingthedog #timeoutbeforework #alittlebitofparadise

A little morning music practice before school. Sadly the sound on my phone is terrible but it's always so lovely to come down in the morning to hear my boy playing piano or cello. #studiotoday #nearlyateen #keepmusicaliveinschools #artsforall #mydailydoseofmusic #collageartist #livingwithmusicians #learningtheclassicsyoung #youngmusician #youngpoet #somerset #frome #westcountryartists #cello #piano

Lovely opening last Friday of these bright, bold and beautiful ceramic sculptures by westcountry ceramicist @patriciavolk now showing @kobiandteal in Frome until 16 June. Lots of lovely new design products in the shop too, we'll worth a visit. #frome #designemporium #gallery #somerset #catherineshill #ceramics #sculptures #colour #shapesandbalance #summershere #exhibition #midcentdesign #handmade #furniture #lighting #gifts

It has been such a delight to exhibit for the first time with @jpartconsultancy. They are a nomadic gallery so have regular pop ups across London showing a broad range of artists. The current Spring show is on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich and today is the last day. It's also the Dulwich Arts Festival so if you're in London get yourself down for a creative fix and if you pop by the gallery say hi to Joanne who has done an amazing job despite battling against every weather condition from snow and ice to high winds and a weekend heatwave! You can follow @jpartconsultancy to find out the dates of the next pop up which will happen in the Autumn. #exhibition #gallery #london #mixedshow #paintings #collage #collageartist #papercuts #abstractartist #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #westcountryartist #londonart #dulwichartfestival @dulwichartfestival

A large collage in progress (I'm still loving green but its been a very green few months and I'm out of all paint and paper now!) Just another quick reminder, if you're in London this week the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead is now on and I'm showing with Bath based gallery Edgar Modern. Plus, it's the last week to see the Spring pop up exhibition with @jpartconsultancy on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich and this weekend is a great time to visit as it's the Dulwich Arts Festival and there'll be lots of creative shenanigans going on. #wintercolours #crispyblues #collageartist #papercuts #abstractartist #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #frome #westcountryart #shapesandbalance #largeworks #preparingforasoloshow #toobusy #westcountryartist #soloshowcomingup #londonartfair #londonart #aafhampstead #loveart

Last week to see the pop up Spring exhibition with @jpartconsultancy on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, London. On show is Dance, collage on board from 2017. It is often said that the British spring comes in like a lion and out like a lamb and this has definitely been the case this year as this lovely exhibition popped up in a snow blizzard and may well come down in a heat wave! #collageartist #papercuts #abstractartist #midcentinspired #modernbritishart #mixedshow #painting #collage #london #londonart #westcountryartist #dance #shapesandbalance
