    Well here we are in 2016 - and what an exciting year it promises to be :)

    2015 saw me come back to my drawing and painting with renewed vigour after concentrating on other projects for a while. I found a real drive and energy to start building new work and a new ambition to take this work further and push myself more than ever before.

    This got off to a great start last year and I was overjoyed with 2 successful submissions to the Warrington Contemporary Open and The Castle Park Open in Frodsham (pic via Castle Park Arts Centre).

    I am now looking forward to building on this in 2016 and already have an exhibition to look forward to in the Summer, where I will be exhibiting alongside 2 great friends and talented artists, Victoria Hough and Nicola Billington. 

    I have also just started a small postcard sized piece which will be winging its way to New York very soon for submission to the #TwitterArtExhibit in March. I am really excited to submit to this project and you may notice that the subject matter carries on my recent biscuit theme.

    In fact, if I were you I would expect to see many more biscuits coming this way...!

    I can't wait to get going on all the new pieces I have got planned and I hope to have lots to show you over the coming months - so, watch this space :)

    Well I hadn't planned on leaving such a big gap between posts, but I seem to have blinked and lost several weeks (this seems to happen a lot!) 

    But during this time lots of exciting things have happened. I got 2 pieces - 'Custard Creams' and 'Party Rings' accepted into and exhibited at the Warrington Open Exhibition. I had a great night at the launch of this exhibition and the Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival it was part of and it was inspiring to see such a wide variety of art work. It was also great that family and friends made the effort to come and see my work too :) 

    I also got news that an exhibition proposal I made with 2 incredibly talented artists (and also 2 of my favourite people) has been accepted by the Castle Park Arts Centre. This means we will be having an exhibition there next Summer which I am so excited about. It also means that there will be plenty of new work coming this way so watch this space! 

    And yesterday I submitted 2 pieces - 'The Cabbage' and the very recently finished 'Don't Rip It!' - to the Castle Park Arts Open Exhibition which launches on Friday evening - so I have everything crossed and will let you know if they're accepted...

    There's so much exciting stuff going on and I can't wait to get going on some new pieces :)
