Happy Halloween

Summer time post.

Hello its now August,I really do not know where this year has gone.I have sort of got over the losing of the gallery and now seem to have more time for my self and family and mainly the garden. This year it looks amazing, the flowers ,colours and feeling when walking or sitting in it is just brilliant. Moving to the community centre I think now was a godsend.
I think I was so consumed with the gallery /shop, I had lost myself. Now I have found myself again, and I am still teaching- that to me is brilliant.

December 2014 News

Well its been nearly a year that we set up the ARTBOXuk in Whitton. I cannot believe that it has been that long already. I would like to say a big thank-you to all the artists that have showcased this year in the gallery,and a really bigger one to those artists who have given their time to help in some form or other be it looking after the gallery ,window displays or running workshops. Then a huge thank-you to Terry for his support and accepting the 12 hour shifts I spend at the workshops.Without us as a team we wouldn't be so successful.

RICHMOND ARThouse Open Studios

Hello everyone - ARThouse Open Studios is now under way, and we have had an excellent response at my own studio and at the gallery in the high street. Thank-you to every one who has helped so far especially Jean who has work like myself,tirelessly to make it all run smoothly. We have a lovely display of work in the gallery and a wide range of fully tutored Art & Craft workshops. We now offer sewing machine servicing and repairs,which is very popular.
The 'Arty Partys' are very popular and are a great success.

June update

Well summer is here at last and The passing community are looking up and around instead of hiding from the wind and rain. Lots of passing trade and lots of the local community joining the workshops. and loving them....We have had wonderful reviews from them - the quality of teaching and variety of the art and craft disciplines.
Half term went by so quickly we hardly have had time to change the window displays.
The Next venture for us is on Saturday when we are helping to host a Tea pARTy for the charity  'United Response'  This is a charity that supports People in the community who have learning difficulties.

December News

Hello Everyone, well it is December and my life has gone mad. Not only am I enjoying the supply teaching at a lovely local school with some gorgeous little ones from reception and nursery,
                 We have finally acquired the shop in Whitton.
We are working hard to set it up and hope to be opening on Tuesday next week

Well I cant sleep so i thought i would write something.

Hello out there - well what have I been doing apart from applying for teaching posts. I have submitted work for 2 Exhibitions, and have been working in the studio on some new pieces using fabric . Some successes and humm! - some whoopsies -The fabric was too thin on some porcelain pieces and disintegrated during the firing. Those that have come out well, will - when they are glazed be lovely - providing they don't warp too much or collapse completely.
I am still teaching my Art students' privately and giving help and advice as well as practical help in developing their skills in drawing ,painting and design.

The ARTBOXuk and its progress

Well its been, a while since my last blog posting, I have been working hard in the studio.I have been painting on canvas, making ceramics. I am at the moment working on two ceramic pieces (porcelain) for an exhibition at Orleans Gallery Richmond in October and towards one in the spring. which will be taking place in at Albans.(fingers Crossed)
The workshops are running well but there are spaces which would be nice to fill. 
I have joined a jewellery class for my self ,to develop my own skills and maybe in a few years maybe I can make to sell and add it to my teaching.
