Swan Artworks - Open!
I am delighted to be exhibiting and selling artwork, books, prints and cards, along with the marvelous Penny Ives, as the 'opening featured artists' of Swan Artworks - Bespoke Picture Framers' in Midsomer Norton.

The shop, owned and run by the lovely Tony and Carrie Osborne, even got a nice feature in The Journal:
I think the exhibition looks splendid!Well done Carrie and Tony, opening a shop is no mean feat! Sorry I couldn't make the opening day, just snowed under with all sorts of things!

And then there were 2...
And just 1 book left to draw, and 10 days till I go to Hong Kong! And through a nice trail/chain of events, and a twist in the tale of my studio/house hunt, I have found a house to move to (just in the nick of time!) It is a beautiful house full of creative musical people, with an abundance of banjo's, ukelele's and guitars! I can't wait to move and get to know my new housemates, and meet a whole new circle of friends.

Sunshine!
I love my sunflower, a ray of sunshine even on a grey rainy day!

Been rather busy lately! But my latest news is that I am delighted to be asked to exhibit work alongside Penny Ives as the opening featured artists at 'Swan Artworks - Bespoke Picture Framers' in Midsomer Norton. A fab new shop to be opened on 29th august by the lovely Carrie and Tony. I enjoyed my afternoon out to visit their shop, meet them properly and had a good chat about music! Thanks for the tea guys :)

I'm also in the midst of drawing roughs for 3 fun short rhyming stories, all due before...

... I leave for Hong Kong on 7th September! Off to stay with my cousin for 2 weeks, and meet a couple of friends in the city. So exciting!

But before I go, I am moving house again! I can't wait, but I still don't know where I am moving to! Ideally I want to move to a smaller cheaper house so I can afford a studio(!) But the studio is 'up in the air' and I'm waiting to hear on a couple of things... but time is ticking by and I have to make a decision soon otherwise I'm going to be sofa surfing for a while! But I have back-up plans, and back-ups of back-ups.... watch this space I guess!

And took some time out camping by the seaside last weekend with some friends, bbq, campfire and shootingstars :)
