Portrait No 2. Acrylic on canvas. 60x60cm. I tell myself I'm doing a lot of research on Pinterest at the moment. I'm mostly just looking at pretty things on Pinterest. Well the faces that are popular and sell for lots of money are he ones with the most refined style and real emotion coming through. Mini aim? 1. Sell a painting. That would make my day. 2. Make faces emotive.

Life drawing - 22.6.15. I forgot my white paint! NOOOOOOOOOOO. So I ended up using the crayons I have in the bottom of my bag for fun. Because crayons are always fun. And less stressful I think than acrylic paints, it forces you not to take things so seriously. There were two models, one of which was pregnant which is always interesting.

Painting fur and feathers is something I have always loved, and I find my style really suits. I officially have my mojo back and feel great to have accomplished a small body of work. Moving to Australia was like starting from scratch, no portfolio here, no paints, nothing. I hope this is a sign of big things to come. (bigger canvases!!!) On show at Tiger Tiger cafe, Perth. The photos don’t do the silver acrylic justice. Originals on sale - $200 ono A3 prints available - $40

After university I didn't really feel like painting much. Three years worth of forced creativity for deadlines can do that to you. So I worked in hospitality and enjoyed my freedom. Then I worked a ski season in Courchevel, France for 5 months. The Alps were incredible and so was snowboarding nearly every day. Then I chased the snow and came to Australia, (there is snow in australia?!) and worked at Mount Buller near Melbourne for 4 months. I enjoyed the warm spring on the east coast, then flew to Rottnest Island, the home of the quokka to work for summer. Now I am settled in Perth and have the time and space to start painting again, and get back into what I truly love. Watch this space. I have my mojo back. 😀
