Dartmoor, Devon

Had a lovely trip to Dartmoor yesterday, so thought I’d share a few photos.




I was there to deliver more of my moorland themed glass paintings  to Widecombe in the Moor National Trust gallery. They have a great selection of local crafts, this photo shows just a small area.


Recycled Abstract Art

I have pots with remnants of glass paint too solid for normal painting. Finally today I got round to using them and had fun scraping out the paint and putting it on plastic packaging to create some recycled art.


It’s turning out like an abstract coral reef and with the dried blobs of paint has a great texture. I’ve got the other sides to do, what do you think so far? 

Happy New Year

Wishing you all a great 2016. I had a lovely break, hence the slightly belated New Year wishes! 

I finished off the holiday with a few days at The Manor House arts, crafts and sports hotel, near Okehampton. A great place with activities for everyone and perfect for inspiring creativity. They have a fabulous hydro spa and beauty treatments too for relaxing.

 I’ve blogged about them before and this year I tried hot press printing among others. A local crafter heat presses my coasters for me so it was interesting to see how it’s done. I did some mugs but quite a few products are available to print images on.

These owl, Giraffe and rabbit poppy mugs are now in Spangles shop, Exeter Quay and if they sell well like my coasters I’ll certainly do more. Of course this is what Zazzle does on a large scale and my artwork is on a huge range of items there and available to buy worldwide.

I hope you’ve had a good start to 2016. My new year resolution is to try and blog more frequently, especially as I’ve decided not to do a newsletter anymore but concentrate on this blog and Twitter. I’ve been spreading myself too thinly on social media!
