Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Busy Travelling Times

Hi Everyone, just a quick note to say sorry that I have not been around blogging so much. I had an unexpected to trip to Frankfurt and Berlin for 2 weeks and it was fantastic. My husband had an unexpected business trip for a month and I decided to join him for a few week. It was so great to be back in Europe. I just loved visiting Germany again and all the Christmas Markets were up and it was truly magical. I have come back with lots of inspiration and I look foward to painting soon again.

Then we were off to Cancun, Mexico for our vacation. This trip we decided to do a family vacation with my parents, sister, the Boo and her husband. It was a really great time. We stayed at the Cancun Palace and it was very nice. Excellent friendly staff.

Now with Christmas around the corner, I have unfortunately not had too much time to work in my studio but I am full of fresh new ideas and ready to hit my easel after the holidays.
