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.

WIP of my Muskoka Chair

Hi Everyone, Well I finally finished the chair, and I am so pleased with the results. It was a huge job, often back breaking. So here are some pictures of my journey. From my sketch Idea to the assembled chair. It was much easier to paint the chair unassembled.

My "Idea" Sketch for the Chair
