The Chelsea Design Quarter Autumn Design Trail will be taking place from 1st – 15th November. This year the theme is Art, Artists and Artisans.

The Chesney’s Chelsea showroom have asked me to be their artist in residence at this 2 week trail and I will be launching my new body of work, ‘Finding Time’ at this wonderful event.

This new body of work represents an exploration of snippets of time and happiness. The happiness I feel when painting and the happiness I feel since becoming a new mother. Finding time to be another person that I never thought I was. My excitement and energy at being a new mother is represented in these pieces. They capture the importance for painting in my life, the therapy and release it allows me. A process of exploration and investigation to find what the painting will become.

Contemporary Painting Workshops

I’ve been asked throughout the years if I would ever want to run workshops again, and I am so pleased to say that the answer is finally YES!

I will be running a limited amount of workshops from 16th November. At the moment this is exclusively for newsletter readers only. 

In the past I have run weekend workshops in Devon, and various abstract art classes in local villages, which I LOVED! However, the time has come for me to host them in my very own studio and really capture what painting means to me, and help others to feel this empowerment and joy!

I have always wanted to host workshops with the intention of being completely free and to remove the misconception of what art ‘’ should’’ be. Now, I feel I can finally do this in my own studio as it really doesn’t matter if a mess is made ( a mess is encouraged!)

Throughout the day we will investigate mark making, expression and colour (my favourite thing!). As well as experimenting with scale and exploring an emotive approach to painting.

My workshops won’t be about sitting down quietly, painting with tiny brushes. Oh no. My tuition will be about expressing yourself, feeling free and pushing yourselves, the materials and scale of your work, to the extreme. To fully embrace and learn that painting can be so much more. To get messy, to get creative, to push all boundaries away.

You will leave with new knowledge, an approach for you to continue painting at home and a finished piece.

Workshops will be hosted from 10am to 4pm. This will include lunch, lots of tea and coffee (and cake of course!) and use of all materials, including an 80cm x 80cm canvas for you to work on, and take home. 

* Daily workshops, 10am – 4pm
* Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday 
* Lunch, tea & coffee included (also cake!)
* All materials provided 
* 80cm x 80cm canvas to take home 


Tuition Options & Prices

1:1 Tuition – £500 

2 people together – £330 per person


I believe anyone can paint, and everyone should get the chance at expressing themselves through art! 

Email me to find a date that is convenient for you, or you and a friend, or, I am more than happy to pair you up with somebody else that would like to participate in these workshops. 

Look forward to hearing from you! 

Milieu Studio

Don't forget

Seven new paintings are currently exhibiting down in St Ives in Cornwall with the lovely Milieu studios.

Colour of the month

Colour inspiration

This is a tricky one this month and there isn’t one single colour that keeps coming forward to me.

I have found though that my recent paintings are all stemming from a much warmer palette than previously. I am leaning towards warmer pinks, oranges, and deeper maroons at the moment and I love it! The cooler tones of blues are not enticing me at all! I think it might be the end of summer vibes, or perhaps the Indian summer that we seem to having? Whatever is it, it’s making all my recent works very warm and delicious!
