Hello Beautiful Souls! Spring is most definitely in the air now. I almost contemplated not wearing my hood whilst surfing yesterday morning...almost! I hope you are all well and there is glorious sunshine where you are. Hopefully you have plans to meet with friends or family for an Easter gathering in the garden this weekend? Possibly your first meeting in over a year! It's hard to believe that it's April already, I'm still in catch up mode from the home schooling days at the start of the year. But I still have much to update you on, so much that I'm going to leave some of my news for other newsletters. So this is just a quick update from me to check in and say hello. And as always a very warm welcome to my new subcribers! It's wonderful to have you on board and I hope you enjoy my arty offerings.

Ocean Prana paintings Some of you may have already seen these energetic framed miniatures on my social media, where they have received a wonderfully warm response! I promise they will be available for sale soon. First they are getting ready for their very own exclusive photo shoot, taking place with professional photograher Dave Green next Tuesday! As soon as they are ready to find homes I will email you - as a subscriber to my mailing list you will have priority access to these ocean inspired originals.
I'm delighted to announce that one of my paintings has been selected for the Visual Artists Association International Online Art Exhibition 2021.

Artist haven: my log cabin garden studio
Studio view: on the inside
Work on my garden studio is coming along nicely. It now has a beautifully landscaped path which I'm so happy with! Working in this space has opened up a whole new world of creativity for me, and I look forward to my painting days now more than ever! I can't wait to show the space to others and am making plans to join Devon Open Studios from Saturday 11 to Sunday 26 September 2021 - make a note in your diary now!
