As a member of the UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) each year there is an Open Juried Exhibition where we are able to submit 3 paintings for possible inclusion into the show, which this year is being held at the prestigious Royal Birmingham Society of Artists gallery. I submitted 3, including Fractured Lilles and Bottles and Glasses, as well as the one on the left, Kingston Bridge. I was pleased to receive an e mail congratulating me on all 3 being accepted! I am exceptionally pleased about it too!
The show starts on the 21st September until the 3rd of October.

Well, after a wonderful holiday to Normandy with my husband and little girl, a bout of Swine flu for me and chicken pox for her, I feel ready to take the bull by the horns again!
Lots of things have been happening in the art world for me. I have had another exhibition at Weybridge Library Hall with The Surrey Artists, had a commission from Derwent Pencil Company for a fractured version of St Pauls Cathedral in pastels, and now I found out that my new ceramic tile of a camper van on the beach is flying off the shelves!
It's just as well Annabel is starting nursery 2 afternoons as week soon! Gives me more art time, which I am grateful for...
And to top it all off, my dear webmaster husband has put a new link on my site so you can now buy direct from it. Let's hope this increases sales for me now. it's something that has always been missing from it, and now we are live! Go take a look and treat yourself.
Something that's in it's planning stage is the possibility of me selling prints of my work. We'll see.....
