Moving on…

To everything there is a season – so the song goes – and the season of beloved@thebarn in Southwell has now come to a natural close. The Barn has been handed over to Millie Pargeter of Oh Baby Photography and it will soon become Millie’s studio for baby and family photography. Her work will literally breathe new life into the building and so it is with great gladness that I handed the keys to Millie on July 31st.

What now for beloved? Well, I will be sharing a pitch at the antiques and collectors fair on the August Bank Holiday weekend with Tammy Taylor of Dairy Barn Interiors, so do come and say hello if you are there.

I’m setting up a new website for my art and photography so if you wish to follow my creative journey, that’s where you’ll find me.

And in Feb/March 2020 I’ll be sharing the Spotlight Gallery in Newark with Jules Wheat, where we will again be nourishing our creative fire, with a range of intuitive painting and photographic work, images and creations.

I am picking up the ghost writing pen again and will be focusing most of my time on writing books for business people who have something important to say but not a lot of time (or desire) to write it all down themselves. Find out more about that here:

I will still offer Personal Play Days!

Exploring Creative Fire: experimental mark making to create your own abstract art.
A one-day art-based workshop creating beautiful works of art by simply putting paint on paper.  This experimental workshop explores the colours and paints you are drawn to and allows yourself to express your creative voice whatever happens. There is no right or wrong way in this workshop and there is no pressure to produce – although you will end the day with several small pieces of art. We are playing, exploring and experimenting and having fun! No experience is necessary (in fact it’s an advantage). 
£60 per person or £100 for two friends booking together.
