Snip, Snip

Hmmm, well these were supposed to be used as silhouette designs for a bench I’m painting but they looked pants and I don’t want to talk about it! 

I ended up turning them into a scene, I’m not that pleased with the layout but I’m happy with the doubling up to add further texture to the idea. 

Excited to be joining CAN later on in the month. Network of artists is the carmarthenshire area. Looking to try out some different styles so this should be of some help. You can check out a catalogue of some of the artists work here

Also, the work I entered into the summer exhibition in Narberth actually sold so I was incredibly pleased about that. Apparently they didn’t get as many people there as they would have liked but that is an issue with the gallery not promoting the event properly. 

Looking for some more competitions and freelance work now, if you know of any open call’s then please do leave a comment with details or email me. x

Texture and pattern

There is currently no rhyme or reason behind the work i am doing. Trying to get back into the swing of things again after being absent for so long. Do you as an artist or creative person have long spells of doing nothing? Let me know. x

Summer Open Narberth

As you may have read on here, I entered three works into the Summer Open in Narberth in South Wales. The exhibition runs from the 5th to the 27th July so if you are in the area please go and support the artists at the Queens Hall Gallery. On the 22nd July, the works entered into the exhibition will be auctioned off. If you cannot attend the gallery please find details on how to bid and full list of works in this illustrated catalogue. Thank you

Scribbling…..and boutique bird houses?

My dad had a mass of bird and bat boxes made so I nabbed a few and created some “art” on them. This is my fave though.

Day 170 of Arsing About!

Arsing about:

1) messing about, being a fool
2) doing nothing in particular for a long time
“What have you been doing all day?”
“Arsing about.”

 

I like to think I fall into the latter category however I haven’t been completely rubbish, my sister and I have been discussing my career prospects. No, no don’t worry…its good news. We think that I am amply qualified to be a professional Marshmallow Ploper. What’s that you ask? Well i would be the one plopping  the marshmallows in your hot chocolate…YEP!

Anyway, when I haven’t been creating highly specialised jobs to apply for I’ve been trying to make myself feel better with creating little bits and bobs.

First I made a paper whisk:

Nuff said really.

I’ve also discovered air drying clay which I’m not quite as excited about anymore as its actually really annoying to work with. I did get some nice jewellery out of it though, think they’d be better out of clay and the properly fired.

Random Statements

I WANT TO HAVE A JOB

I feel I need to try another aspect of creativity to get me back motivated about my own work again.

Weekends are when I at least have the excuse of it being the weekend to be lazy

I love art but can’t seem to find me own style.

 

My brain is like a murky pond, it needs to be drained.

Where to begin…?

 

I’m bored

I feel guilty about having other interests

I want to be stretched both physically and mentally

 

I imagine my life in 5 years but nothing has changed

 

I’m impatient!

Back to motivation

I want my enjoyment to be my career

 

I need to move

I like everyday people who inspire me.

I am in awe of those that do.

Ta-da…these are now available to buy in the Welsh Rare-bits Co. Shop. Click on the screen cap above to go to the shop.

My next project involves a badger skull that my sister brought up from the woods. I thought she was bringing me something nice, she walked in carrying a Marks&Spencers bag so obviously I thought it was food. You can imagine my suprese!!
