well, as we approaching the new year, I have been thinking a great deal about my practice and feel that, sadly, it is time to end posting here on my Blog.
My Blog has been so good to me, life enhancing in fact, as through this online diary I have made many wonderful friends, near and far.  I have had opportunities come my, which would never have happened without this connection to so many creative people and organisations.
A huge thank you to all those lovely people that have been with me all of the way starting back in 2008 and to newer folks who have popped by to read my ramblings.
If you feel you would like to stay connected, I have a Newsletter email, which I send out every couple of months and I regularly use Instagram...both links can be found on the side bar.
A huge thank you to all readers and I wish you a very happy, prosperous and creative 2017.

A day at Hope & Elvis studio.

I spent a most enjoyable day, a couple of Saturdays ago, attending a Workshop delivered by 
You will probably know that Lisa has created, over the last 15 years or so beautiful imagery for fashion and home ware, together with her own ranges of greetings cards and artworks.
Here are a few snaps of her current range of artworks and greetings cards.

Only a week or two before she had published a book for children, entitled 'Handstand'.  

The day was about 'doodling on cloth'.   Louise aka Hope & Elvis had furnished us with all sorts of interesting textiles and ephemera, all vintage, for us to use on the day.

If you haven't been to H & E, it is a very inspiring and uplifting place to spend a day.   Louise has exhibited works purchased from visiting artist practitioners, who have delivered workshops there.

Back to Lisa's work...

and the lady herself.

A super day , with very good friends and I achieved absolutely nothing, other than an awful lot of chatting.   But, I did come away with more of an insight into the business side of illustration (the good, the bad and the ugly) and a promise to myself to have more confidence and self belief in my work.

Thanks for stopping by. X
