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.

Kingfisher

Thought I'd share some images of a commission I have just finished. Really pleased with how this little chap has turned out. I often see these little birds whilst walking the dog and they always make you smile.

Seabird

Its been a while since my last post....thought I'd share this Cormorant. I have been working on sculptures connected with the sea for a show later this year... more strange beasties to follow..

Happy New Year

Happy new year to everyone - I've been having a proper clean and sort out in my workshop this week - I've found lots of bits and pieces I'd forgotten I have.

Patient Dog

My dog Maisie waits patiently.....I have a small studio set-up in my loft and she sits at the foot of the ladder while I photograph my work.

A day at the zoo

I can believe that I've been in Bristol for over 3 years and I've only just visited the zoo! I spent my child hood dragging my family round zoos at every available opportunity! 

Guess the creature?

Time for another guess the creature post. This was a recent commission for a birthday gift and the recipient was stumped! So lets see if anyone can guess what these bits and pieces became? Answer on my facebook and instagrm page on Friday.

Getting ready for the show!

Jacqueline and Tim busy getting the Hybrid gallery stand ready for tonight's Affordable Art Fair in Bristol.

Smaller work

I normally post photos of the larger more complicated work.....so for a change I thought I'd share a few of the smaller pieces that will be at the Bristol Affordable Art Fair this weekend 😉

Get out the Mozzie spray!

I'm busy finishing off pieces for this autumns Affordable Art fair's in Bristol and Battersea. This insect is a first for me - Not everyone's cup of tea....but I really like the humor of a 1ft long Mosquito on the wall! 😀

cicada

I've been working on some (true) bugs for next months Affordable Art Fair in Bristol. This cicada is thankfully a lot quieter than the real thing!....although I always like their noisy hiss when i'm away 🙂

Spoonbill

Had a bit of a gap since my last post! thought i'd share one of the finished pieces I've been working on... a spoonbill 🙂
