Nepenthe and Lepidoptera

Hello online world :)

It has been an incredible whirlwind of emotion and experience the past few months. I had the launch of my solo exhibition 'Lepidoptera' at the Locavore and it was smashing. So happy. I sold many painting to dear friends and a few strangers. Can't wait to imagine them in their new homes and what (hopefully) they will bring their new owners. It's always so lovely to know that someone fell in love with a piece. Really connected with it. It really does keep me drawing. I have been getting back into the swing of things nicely many ideas, thoughts, dreams swirling around in my head constantly. I can't find the time to scribble them all down. Focusing has never been my strong suit. An overactive imagination and constant dreaming comes easily to me though. I am finding it increasingly easier to draw the things I want now, the things inside my head. My drawings evolve a lot more naturally- when I am putting pen to paper now I find it easier to channel the thoughts. To turn them into beautiful ladies with expressive eyes. I am liking that. I makes the process of creation a whole lot easier and not riddled with self doubt like it used to. I can draw freely without worry or too much self-analysis. I love the ladies from my dreams and in my head and am really enjoying seeing them come to life on my wood panels. 

I am super excited about the new commission I have planned in the works for my father- a massive landscape aligned panel 2 metres wide and a quarter of that size in height, an interesting and new shape for me.....a new deviation from my typical portrait/A1 panels. I am looking forward to the challenged this will throw at me and learning to use space in a completely new way. Yes. 

Here is my latest. I can't wait to get going and show you what I have in store. Always thinking! Thank you for your support and continual lovely words. They keep me sane. And very, very happy.
