I have a really crazy creative painting spell lately. I just cant stop. Im full of new ideas and have been going all abstract.
As if I wasnt simple enough!
Iv been playing around with some little block stripe paintings.
I cant wait to do some big ones of these but for now I v added the little ones to my website and Etsy Shop.
Well thats summer over. It was all a bit hectic in August but great fun.
Thank you so much if you bought from me at the shows, galleries or online. Your custom is very much appreciate.
I am now busy painting to restock galleries in Yarmouth and Weymouth.

Latest update on Chalk paints.
I love the finish I get with chalk paints, and I have no worries with permanence etc as the quality of the paint I use is superb,
but due to customers unease about these fairly new paints, I have gone back to acrylics.
I feel a litle dissapointed about this as I believe these paints are the future, but I value my customers concerns.
So its back to good old acrylics!

Last year was great, I moved home to the Isle of Wight, but I have such lovely memories of living in Dorset. I miss it!
However I have remained in close contact with friends and also the galleries who will continue to sell my work.
Like everyone else Im getting concerned about all the plastic in the world and I often used plastic pots to mix my un-environmentally acrylic paints in, so I have been experimenting in chalk paints.
These are eco friendly and lovely to use.
they specialise in water based non toxic paints which are completely environmentally friendly and conform to the ASDM-D4236 requirements.
They provide a great range of colours which will suit my style perfectly.
Im really excited to get going with these paints. This is my first Chalky painting.
I also have introduced my range of graphic design prints to Stripy Art. These are all digitally designed on the computer.
There are some Travel Posters and funky retro designs. I hope you like them!
Iv been busy stocking up shops and galleries on the Isle of Wight and Dorset. See 'links' page for stockists.
