Well in November 2016 I finally decided to leave my full time job as joint manager at Newfield Hall to become a full time self employed artist and teacher. It hasn’t been an easy decision but I’m so glad I made this choice. I now run weekly watercolour classes at Gargrave Village Hall where I have been teaching for four years. One on Wednesday evenings from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm and one on Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm. Numbers are steadily picking up and I’m excited for what lies ahead.I’m feeling energised and positive all of which is good for new inspirations. I have a few new ideas to explore and will be holding a stand a the Ilkley art Show in August this year. I have also taken on more art holidays with the www.christianguild.co.uk Two holidays at Abbot Hall in Grange Over Sands in Cumbria and two at Willersley Castle at Cromford in Derbyshire. I am also painting again with my oils and absolutely loving it. I have been working on some sea scenes recently. which you can view in my gallery.
In other news I have recently held a solo exhibition at the VSQ Gin bar in Skipton North Yorkshire which was a success. There will be more exhibitions later in the year if you would like to pop in.
