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!

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....
Why enchanted words?
Sometimes, just sometimes you need to find the perfect gift. Something special for the person who has everything, or something personal for a special person!
I got the idea to start enchanted words when I had been shown a great deal of generosity and love from some people I barely knew. They had opened up their home to me and honestly, no exaggeration, they changed my life.
I wanted to thank them in a very personal way for their kindness and so I made them a bespoke word cloud. The silhouette and words chosen were very pertinent and the gift went down an absolute storm, so much so that when I shared it on social media I had numerous people asking me to make them one! And so enchanted words began!
I was aware that there were similar products around, but noticed that you couldn’t really choose what you wanted your picture actually to be of! This was a problem for me, I knew what I wanted and ended up making it myself, and so it became the cornerstone of my business.
The difference with my bespoke service is that you are totally in control and can choose everything, literally everything!
Words are so powerful, emotion inducing and thoughtful, you can literally floor somebody, make them cry tears of joy and fully express yourself using well chosen words,so I set out to create a company who could spread love amongst friends, family and even strangers !
I think we have something very special here, a true way to express , well, anything!
Do send your ideas and suggestions, what design for a bespoke wordcloud would you choose?
