Happy Festive Season

It's a beautiful sunny Christmas morning here in Australia temperature expected to reach 31C. I'd like to thank everyone for your support during the year, I really do appreciate it. This Christmas won't be quite the same for us with the passing of my sister, but we have the birth of a new grandson to help us get through. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas or a Happy whatever it is you celebrate and please all stay safe.

Published twice

I've had the very good fortune to receive two fabulous books this week that I've had work published in. The first one is by British textile artist and publisher Maggie Grey. I was very honoured to be included with five other artists in Maggie's latest book 'Approaches to Stitch', and what a fabulous book it is, I love all of the work by all of the artists, such a talented group.
I was also fortunate to be included in Seth Apter's latest book 'The Mixed Media Artist', too. These have been lovely highlights to the end of the year.

this is one of ten pages that feature my work

Seth's new book features a piece of my jewellery

Thank you again for visiting and for your lovely comments.

Happy arrival

We had some happy news this week. The arrival of another grandson, Logan Julian, (Julian after my sister Julie Anne). Another little artist to add to my clan. I now have another mural to paint on his bedroom wall.

I've also added another necklace to my Etsy shop. This one features some very old brass and metal buttons that I've hand beaten to represent old coin relics. It's very light and comfortable to wear.

it also features a little wooden tiger

Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to comment, I really do appreciate it.
