Stumbled across this artist’s work yesterday and have fallen madly and deeply in love with her abstract paintings. They make me feel all bubbly and excited and happy on the inside and (perhaps) most importantly they make me want to go and pick up a paintbrush. 
She’s fairly unusual as an artist (although maybe this is becoming more the norm?) in the sense that she seems to predominantly, even exclusively, sell her work online via Etsy as opposed to in galleries, at fairs or in shops. And she does so successfully, with what I believe to be really quality paintings! 
You can check out her Etsy shop here, and an article about her creative process here. I am insanely jealous of her incredible studio space with floor to ceiling windows that look out over the landscape of Co. Galway. I can but dream…

I’ve been working on a painting of Newquay Harbour that is going to be made into a flyer to promote our church day out in Newquay on the 31st of May. I wanted it to be reminiscent in style of the early 20th Century railway posters painted by artists like Norman Wilkinson, Frank Newbould and Frank Henry Mason. I’m fairly pleased with how it’s turned out!

I’m part of an exhibition next week in Bath that has been organised by artventure (http://www.artventure.uk.com/Welcome.html) It starts on the 28th April and finishes on the 4th May, private view is on the 29th, 6-9pm. If you happen to find yourself in Bath next week for whatever reason (day trip, business meeting, alien abduction) then head to 44AD Gallery and have a look around! (if the aliens permit it)
