Hi guys,

Introducing my very first blog from my new page!  I am so excited to be sharing my work with you all in the forum.

Welcome to my new page! As you can see it is filled with all things creative.  Alive and interesting!! I have a shop with selected available pieces and I have a collection of art either sold or being exhibited for you to view I also teach classes and workshops in my extremely busy studio on a regular basis! My studio/gallery is a place where I want people to explore creativity in an environment shared with like minded art loving souls.

If you think this is something that will bring out the artist in you, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by email through my page, Facebook or Instagram. Come along and join in on an inspirational journey.

The dates are set for the first five workshops of the year and I am pleased to announce a few figurative workshops as requested.

The first held in March will be a Portrait / Figurative Workshop in pastels because of the many enquiries I have had about this technique.

Then following on in May there will be a Portrait / Figurative workshop in Acrylics / Oils working with washes and palette knife.

As well as my regular classes every week, I will be providing tips and painting techniques via my blog which will be provided on a continual basis and shared on social media also.

For a more personal connection you can subscribe to my page for weekly updates and inspiration.  Art is Life & Life is Love.

My weekly blogs will be inspirational, sharing, caring and provide you with my thoughts on life as well as demonstrating what I know with a few easy painting techniques for your next arty creation.

I share many ideas with my students and my studio certainly has an air about it!  An environment where one can truly find themselves and explore the possibilities.

I know for a fact that being an artist is what I was meant to be, not only that but much more!  I was meant to teach others what I know, not only the technical aspects of painting in a variety of mediums, but also my knowledge gained through my experiences as a professional artist in the art world!

To love life! Live well and love others!!

Happiness and passion comes from deep inside!

That’s one of the reasons I smile all the time!!

Please check my page for dates, times, location and cost of classes and Workshops.

Have a beautiful day!! ❤️ J x

    Best wishes to you and your artistic and teaching endeavors. I’m not an artist but appreciate art in the form of natural beauty — from Nature or human creations(one and the same), particularly the images of people from photographs or paintings, or the real, living persons. I’ve come to admire your works and the self photos you take. You and your paintings are especially beautiful to me; I enjoy viewing them and appreciate you as an artist and the beautiful person you are . . . more and more as you continue to grow your talents and surprise your followers with new creations of photos and paintings.

    I forgot to tell you that your blog “welcome photo” is another of your great artworks. It’s a beatifully composed photo of you, a lovely, attractive lady, so elegantly dressed and fashionably posed, adding a gorgeous smile that effusively radiates a wonderful warmth and passion that seems to transcend and outreach the physical photograph.
