Its that time of year again.
Although Im listed in the back of the Open Studios catalogue, my loft studio just isnt suitable
for visitors and Im very busy keeping up with your orders, so not practical for me to take time out.
But so much of my work is available to view or buy from the Aqualibrium Gallery down on the duver.
You will find Julia, Will and Caroline very helpful and its such a lovely area for a walk and lunch or an icecream.
Just drive to the end of the road and look for the big green sheds.
You can also give me a ring or email me with any questions regarding my work or to discuss commissions.
And you can order from my website. Postage is free anywhere in U.K
Delighted to be showing my work at the AA London Gallery in Chiswick.
I will be working on some more London paintings soon.
I love painting stripes but sometimes I like to to experiment with other techniques.
So I have added a FREESTYLE section to my SHOP page.
NEW range of square posters with town and village names in fun colours.

Latest update on Chalk paints.
I love the finish I get with chalk paints, and I have no worries with permanence etc as the quality of the paint I use is superb,
but due to customers unease about these fairly new paints, I have gone back to acrylics.
I feel a litle dissapointed about this as I believe these paints are the future, but I value my customers concerns.
So its back to good old acrylics!

Last year was great, I moved home to the Isle of Wight, but I have such lovely memories of living in Dorset. I miss it!
However I have remained in close contact with friends and also the galleries who will continue to sell my work.
Like everyone else Im getting concerned about all the plastic in the world and I often used plastic pots to mix my un-environmentally acrylic paints in, so I have been experimenting in chalk paints.
These are eco friendly and lovely to use.
they specialise in water based non toxic paints which are completely environmentally friendly and conform to the ASDM-D4236 requirements.
They provide a great range of colours which will suit my style perfectly.
Im really excited to get going with these paints. This is my first Chalky painting.
I also have introduced my range of graphic design prints to Stripy Art. These are all digitally designed on the computer.
There are some Travel Posters and funky retro designs. I hope you like them!
Iv been busy stocking up shops and galleries on the Isle of Wight and Dorset. See 'links' page for stockists.
