Penguins on parade……

Roo’s penguin paintings are now on display, and for sale, at ¬†The¬†Bookcase¬†– the wonderful independent bookshop on Market Street in Hebden Bridge, along with a selection of rather lovely greetings cards! (not to mention a shop full of hoards of fabulous books……)

Recently I have been particularly enamoured by the way that we all¬†bring¬†our own stories to the reading of a book, and each take a different story away with us – leaving the book on the shelf, altered, waiting for the next reader to come along….

WELCOME :-)

Welcome to my new art blog……
Here I will post news and latest images of my artworks as well as thoughts and observations on art and life….(hopefully either intelligent or amusing, or both!)
..and on that note:
A cluster of little penguins dotted about the studio wall. They look like a little family, all different but related ‚Äď my little family. Pretty exciting really. I do love being productive.
