Ceramic tiles and demonstrations

This month is a busy one. I have recently joined Art Profile, which is a demonstration agency which organises and books artists for demonstrations to art clubs and societies.
Being an artist can be a solitary career, so being able to do demo's to other like minded people is wonderful, a little nervewracking, but good fun! I did my 3rd one on Tuesday at Oxshott Art and Craft Society and showed them how to create a Fractured drawing. I explained how I developed my technique, the inspiration and then completed a piece in 2 hours! The last 10 minutes was a rush (cue Benny Hill music) but got it completed. Thankfully the members all thoroughly enjoyed it and went away inspired.
The drawing was completed on black Colourfix paper using Derwent chalk pastels.

I also work closely with Fiesta Collectables, which I have previously mentioned. These last few months I have been painting a set of 4 herb tiles. They have proved to be best sellers!
 
 
I have added a link to where you can purchase these tiles.
There are a few others, including Poppies, Sunflowers, a Camper Van and a Cockerel!
