It is no secret that I love animals. I come from a family of animal lovers.So its no surprise that I often choose dogs (and their owners) as subjects for my art.
This is going to be a long list so I have split it into two. Its based on suggestions that have been made to me via this blog, facebook or in person. I have also found a few more on pinterest that I felt I had to add. These women are all feminist icons in my book as they were breaking accepted ideas of female behaviour and attempting to achieve financial independence.

In the Brecon Beacons it has snowed. In Stroud, where my parents live, it has snowed. Here? Nope. We had about ten minutes of sleet yesterday morning and that’s it. That’s what you get for living next to the sea, mild winters and damp summers. The last time it […]
Christmas Shows (2 of 2) In October 2011 the gallery was closed temporarily for a £6 million refurbishment and recladding of the 1974 extension. It wasn’t opened again until 2017. That’s almost 6 years closed. Then this summer it reopened. So when the gallery announced that it was […]
