National moth week

As its national moth week I though I would share some of the moths I’ve made.

Finished commission

Thought I'd share a commission I've just completed for one of my oldest customers. Adding to their already extensive menagerie. I'm really please with how this fella turned out.

Lizard

I hope everyone had a good bank holiday..thank you all for your guesses...some really good ideas for future projects among them! But well done to Victoria Partridge who was in first with Bearded dragon/lizard on Facebook and to the others how guessed correctly with lizard. Here is the finished piece.

Oil can

Ok so I thought I’d try something a bit different for the Bank holiday weekend. Here’s a found object that I’ve made into an animal...have a guess what this has become???  🦒 🐆🐘🦛🐫🐎🐄🦓🦈🐩 the finished piece will be posted Tuesday 😊

Thank You

Thank you to everyone that came to last weekends Fresh Art Fair in Cheltenham. This little fella was one of the pieces that found a new home over the 3 days. I'm now busy getting ready for next weeks Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead!

PIGEON

I often lean towards more exotic beasts when choosing subjects for my work. So I thought I would make something a little more familiar. Although, If you spend time looking at pigeons they are no less beautiful.

First piece of 2019

After a slow start I've finished my first piece of 2019. A large ichneumon wasp - with a 54cm wingspan and an overall length of 74cm she was quite tricky to photograph with my small studio set up!

Affordable Art Battersea

Affordable Art Fair Battersea opens today and runs until Sunday 21st Oct. My work is with The Hybrid gallery stand L3. If you find yourself in London this weekend come and have a look

little anteater

Its very warm in my workshop at the moment! I've been starting early to make the most of the cooler mornings. Despite the heat and the distractions of my garden when the weather has been so beautiful🌞🌞 I've managed to work on a few pieces this week, here is a little anteater I finished yesterday.

Boot fair with a view

Spent a few days in Wales over the half term and called into this boot fair in Abergavenny. I didn’t find much but the setting was beautiful!

Mayflies

The Mayflies are out in large numbers on my local stretch of the river Frome. So I thought I would share this timely piece. Its always lovely to see these insects take to the air on mass and to watch all the other creatures that rely on them.
