Flipping heck it’s rainy out there!
Welcome to my studio news, from a very wet and windy Meldreth!New paintingsI’ve been super busy over the last couple of weeks, keeping myself well out of the way of any mischief! And as a result I have a few new pieces in the online shop, including this handsome chap.
A good friend of mine, and also a talented artist has encouraged me to be more experimental with my backgrounds! It’s important to push yourself creatively, and he is quite right, it lends a certain depth and interest to the piece. It’s so important to take advice and grow as an artist, and I have many people around me who help me do just that.See my new work here Wraptious competition So many of you have voted for me already and a few of you have even bought a cushion or two! Thank you SO much and from the bottom on my heart for your support!

Royston arts societyI’m delighted to say I have been accepted as a member of Royston Arts society, and although I just missed the deadline for this exhibition myself there are some fantastic pieces on display and for sale, head along and take a look if you can!
Talking of Royston arts society, here are the 3 pieces I have chosen for their permanent exhibition in Royston library! This exhibition changes monthly and has some fantastic pieces from local artists, all with very different styles and subjects.It’s nearly a year since I started this little arts business, my art and my style is really starting to develop, and I couldn’t have done it without your help and support so thank you!
“Enchanted words arts” has now officially retired, and “ The Accidental Artist” is now going strong, my decision to focus just on my painting has been the right one so far and I’m loving seeing what pops onto the paper more and more!
I am hoping to be represented in a few exhibitions over the autumn, and I’m in talks about being stocked in some local businesses too! There are also are secret talks in quiet corners about a little local exhibition of my own! Shhhhh! It’s a secret!! But do look out for news about that!
Until next time....
Hello and welcome to my latest newsletter!
I promise you with all my heart that this won’t be a spam-a-thon !, It’s just a nice way to connect with you occasionally!
And I do have news.....
As I’m sure you’ve noticed , the bespoke wordclouds I once made are slowly being phased out, so please don’t be alarmed when they disappear from my website over the next few weeks.
I might be persuaded to do the odd one here or there if you ask nicely though 🤩
There are a couple of reasons for this, the main one being that I’m a creative and now I’ve got going with the painting I can’t stop!
Because of this “Enchanted Words” has now become the “Accidental Artist” two words which describe me perfectly! 🙈😂
but the puffin stays.....

Printed to order they take 10 to 14 days for delivery
Where can you find me?
As my online business grows and grows and after having been to numerous events recently, I have decided that I unfortunately won’t be attending any craft fairs or country shows for the time being.
The turnout for these events is usually disappointing , and the pitch prices sometimes astronomical, so I have concluded that for now, at least my time can be better spent painting!
What I will be doing however is joining up with local galleries and art societies who hold little exhibitions in local places, so look out for my work there and if you see any, give it a share on social media!
I’ll be starting in Royston and Cambridge and seeing where the road takes me from there! Here’s a little sneak peak of my latest piece “ Who’s game?”
He will be available in the online shop on Monday!
PS.. you can see the whole painting on Facebook 🤫
Don’t forget that as my special subscribers you can get 10% off any order by using code NEWSTEN at checkout
Thank you so much for your support it means the world to me!
I’m so looking forward to taking you with me on this journey and excited to see where it will lead!
Every social media share and mention really helps, so thank you for helping me get seen!
I have a few other things up my sleeve which I can’t wait to tell you about too so watch this space!
See you soon and remember .....keep supporting local!
