'Isisa' Oil on Found wood. 45x45 cm Lawks! That was a blast wasn't it? Where am I, how did I get here? I'm so confused! I think it's the total change to routine plus drinking my own body weight in homemade cider for the last 2 weeks. I feel a New Year's resolution coming on! And definitely back to the gym, power lifting with my bestie Suzan is worth staying sober for! Now back to work! I'm absolutely not complaining though, I feel so lucky to do the job I love, ok sometimes I can't afford food...

'Nanook'. Oil and gold leaf on wood '38 x 22 cm Shetland, moving house, onward and upward! My monthly newsletters seem to have become an annual event! The last few months have been so busy but as my school teachers used to say, "Put those matches down!" No not that, "Must try harder!" On the whole this year has been a blast though. Nick got a camper van and we have been pushing off for weekends here and there, just pulling up in quiet field entrances and van stops, utter bliss! We're also just...

'Journey to Zazzura' Yule Love This ! The year really seems to be gathering speed now and hibernation has never been more tempting! As always I'm so grateful I live in the countryside and am blatantly aware of the changing seasons and the beauty within each of them. This is indeed one of those 'Marmite' seasons, mentioning the word Christmas (I prefer Yule- like Christmas but without the obsessive shopping) and one could be risking bodily harm or excited giggles and one may not know which until...

'Brother wolf and Sister Moon' Oil and silver leaf on aged wood 16 x 22cm Samhain Shenanigans ! Ok I admit it, this is my favourite time of year! I love the autumnal colours, the chill that demands jumpers to be worn and the wood burner to be lit, I love the apple scented air and just witnessing nature doing her thing. I've gathered mushrooms and berries and really been feeling at one with the season. And now as if it could get any better it's Samhain, my fave festival of the year! Last...

'The Frog Prince' Oil and gold leaf on driftwood. 32 x 15cm Days and nights are in balance once more (though since I started writing this over a week ago, the balance is tipping!) and autumn is certainly making her presence felt! I lit the wood burner for the first time in months last night, it was like being reunited with an old friend! Nick's and my exhibition in Shaftesbury now seems 'so last month' Gosh it went well...

Nick is showing his new collection of drawings of Southleigh woods. I'm looking at them now hanging in the gallery and they really are stunning. A beautiful...

'Lammas' Oil on wood panel. 81 x 25 cm Lammas Greetings and Happy August! 'Heidrun' Oil on wood panel Who'd have thought it, the schools break and so does the weather! I think most fields have been cleared of grain before the rain started and in time for lammas(or the harvest festival) on the 1 August. However the sun shone for our last open studio which was as predicted, a combination of Woodstock and Springwatch! Sadly Charlie Noton could not attend but Amelia ap Ellis (professional gardener,...

'Selene' Oil and silver leaf on wood panel. 81 x 25 cm Joyous July! 'Litha' Oil and gold leaf on wood panel When I titled my last news letter 'Flaming June' I didn't actually expect it to be a flaming June, this is Britain after all! However, wow, we could be in the Mediterranean and I'm currently writing this whilst sitting in the garden surrounded by bird song and the scent of summer flowers. Our studio stays blissfully cool, too cool in winter but now its a blessing. Most of my work has gone...
