I know many of you have been waiting for this news & thanks to my extremely patient & very talented web designer we are finally ready to launch. In the short term this should make things super easy for all of you wanting to link directly to my Patreon videos. There will also be a website learning portal added on to the site very soon for those preferring not to become a member on Patreon though. And of course, more free video links & news items will be added all of the time. Please do join me in thanking the wonderful Kenny @Creates Web design for his work on pulling this together for me.
In December 2018 I received an email that literally had me pinching myself. And when that did not work I pinched myself a little more! Apparently I had been nominated by Colored Pencil Magazine's readers & followers & I was now a finalist in not just one but three of the categories! Website of the Year for my Patreon channel, Youtube Channel of the Year & Instructor of the Year. I just want to express my extreme gratitude for All that took the time to both nominate me in the first place & of course who voted for me. A big Congratulations to All of the very deserving winners.
Absolutely delighted that out of over 1000 entries to this year’s prestigious Ken Bromley Cover Competition my Hee Haws were not only juried into the final selection but the public voted them into 1st Runner up position.
A huge thank you to everyone who voted!
The US tour was definitely a life-changer & I had the time of my life. The people were amazing, the workshops were both exhausting but so fulfilling & the friends I made I will keep forever.
A huge thank you to Ann Kullberg & her team for making it all possible.
As Arnie says….I will be back!
Absolutely delighted to see that my portrait of Monsieur Renard won the People’s Choice award at this year’s Handel Protheroe exhibition in Monmouth. I have come 2nd & 3rd so many times so this is fantastic news. Maybe one day I will be a hit with the judges too!
The original is still available for sale along with prints & canvases…
Absolutely delighted to see that my portrait of Gladys was awarded the People’s Choice in the 18th Annual COLOR Magazine Member Show. There were some absolutely stunning entries again this year & you can see the full gallery of final entries here Gallery
I am both shocked & totally overwhelmed to learn that I have been selected as one of the finalists in the Women of the Year Awards for 2017. I am in the Creative Woman of the Year category & the winner will be announced at a black tie event in Cheltenham on June 1st. I have my posh frock & my Jimmy Choos all dusted off ready to go although just being selected is already a huge achievement for me.
I will keep you all posted!

Really excited to announce that Hee Haw was awarded 1st place in the People’s Choice out of the 28 finalists from over 300 entries in the Jackson’s Art ‘Drawn In’ competition. There were some amazing pieces in the final & I am very honoured if you did vote for my donkeys.
