Insect Ways On Summer Days…

 This week it’s all about bugs!

My youngest and I have just had a relaxing couple of days in West Wales, where we spent one happy half hour watching this little stunner go about it’s business…
We also saw an abundance of large bumble bees enjoying the flowers around our cosy little wooden shed near the banks of the River Teifi. The most beautiful location for a break, with a perfect balance of castles, ancient monuments, beaches and river swims 🙂
I hope you have all had a chance to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the bees.

This recently finished Shelf Portrait ‘Insect Ways On Summer Days’ was such fun to paint! All the beetles and bees made me smile, but I think the damsel-fly has to be my favourite. Big thanks go to Toby Cotterill a fellow studio holder at Northlight Art Studios for the inspiration of his book collection. Toby makes unique articulated jewellery inspired by the natural world and by arthropods in particular..

The original painting has already been snapped up, but ‘Insect Ways On Summer Days’ is newly available to order as a Limited Edition Print – just follow the button below to find out more….

Hebden Bridge Open Studios
9th,10th and 11th July

I will be joining a fabulous range of local artists and makers in opening my studio (within current guidelines). We are so looking forward to welcoming visitors into our studios once more 🙂
I will keep you informed of our Covid Policy nearer the time, but I imagine we will have a limit to a single-group in each studio at one time. There will be outdoor seating (and some refreshments!) in the yard to hang out in if you need to wait your turn !!
