Plans afoot for an open studio event over the weekend of 19th and 20th September

We are planning to have an event that will be free but bookable to control numbers and maintain social distancing. It will be held over two floors so that we can operate a one way system. So R rate allowing there will be artists and makers to visit and admire and buy from.
Will update as plans progress or check the studio website

Hope to see you there

More more than weeds

More than weeds

I’ve been taking part in the 100 days project to repeat a creative act every day for 100 days.
I’ve ended up painting a quick watercolour study at midnight, of a plant that I have come across during the day that would be considered a weed in some places.
The painting is posted on Instagram each day.

So here are my paintings so far and the place where they are painted.

Wood avens or herb bennet 


Hedge mustard 

Small leaved elm 

Stinging nettle  


Shepherds purse 

Kitchen table studio

White dead nettle


For now, some cats for you...


What’s over there?
