As soon as the temperature dropped, I decided it was time for snowy scenes. I have once again abandoned my Scilly Isles picture to work on some smallish snow scenes.
“Winter Swan “is a scene with a snowy Dartmoor in the background and the Lockkeeper’s Cottage, Topsham, with swans in the foreground. It’s always a challenge depicting reflections in fabric collage and I approach it with fresh eyes and ideas each time.
Reclaimed wood framing
“Lets go for a pint to Dittisham” now framed with glorious blue with touches of purple palletwood, which Neil pulled apart. Winter Swan is also framed in a whited wood and looking good.
Artwey Christmas Exhibition
Excited to be part of this exhibition again and I have been looking out for some small wintery samples to frame for it. Cannot resist continuing with the snowy theme by starting another snowy picture of a Church building at dusk, very atmospheric.

Coast Magazine Article
Very excited that Coast Magazine have chosen to feature me and my work in the section “Inspired by the Coast” in the February issue, out for sale 27th December.
I’ve seen the article but have no idea which photos they have used to illustrate. I even managed a mention of Open for Art as well as Athay Gallery Portland, Art@96 Topsham and Seagrove Gallery Marazion. Antje Rook took some fabulous photos of Neil and I on Chesil beach which I hope they will use but they may be very summery for a February issue?
