Into a new phase............
Having now left my studios in the Bideford Pannier Market I now work from my new home studio. Why did I leave? simple really, the time had come for me to move on and concentrate on both my own art which had been a little on the back burner due to the need to produce "commercial" paintings to support my small business and also my teaching in the area has been so well received that I want to spend more time hosting lessons and courses. After my National Trust residency at the Bucks Mills cabin I started to realise that there is far more to an artists life than just selling. My residency inspired me so much and I produced such fluid and atmospheric work during that time (One of which sold at the RHS open exhibition) it was then that the clock started ticking towards me handing in my notice, a decision I didn't take lightly but a decision I have not regretted one bit.
I look forward to a busy and productive year ahead, I have several courses on the go (see my "Where am I" page) and I have a second residency with the National Trust at the Bucks Mills cabin in June.
I don't know if anyone reads this but thanks if you do, I appreciate the support.
