Xmas Market

I’ll be selling lots of Christmas goodies at the Diddy Dots Market next Saturday. Hand crafted cards, paintings, fridge magnets, keyrings and hand-painted photo frames, glass coasters, wish sticks and wooden decorations as well as some of the old favourites – wooden assemblage blocks depicting old London. Hope to see you there… I’ll also be taking registrations for my new mixed media workshops in the new year.



Busy getting ready for Xmas Markets

Check out my selection of Xmas goodies on sale at Diddy Dots Xmas market, 5th December inside Crouch End’s fabulous Town Hall and Yule ‘blink’ at Earl Haig Hall on 12th December.

These bespoke pieces were created using Pebeo’s new Mixed Media range of paints. Glass Coasters and Wish Sticks and wooden decorations. Great fun.

Another find in the Studio

Finally got to sorting out my paints and came across a small bottle of iridescent gold that had never been used. Must have had this for years and thought it had probably dried up but, no, good as new so I put it to test on a painting that needed a bit of glitz. Not sure that you can see the beautiful effects that different light throws on the surface but it reminded me of ancient Egypt – so here is A Pharaoh’s Odyssey complete with hieroglyphics that I printed out on tissue paper to represent the delicacy of papyrus.
