Studio Projects

My process entails having a few different studio projects running at any time, so ideas cross-pollinate as I hop from one to another.

I love to work freely with big splashy messy paint and multiple collaged layers – then deconstructing these bigger pieces to reconstruct something entirely new from the fragments.

A result of this practice is I often have more pieces than I can use!  I’ve bundled the best of these pieces into collections which are available in my shop.

The 100 Day Project

The 2024 100 Day Project runs from Sunday 18th February 2024.

This is my eighth (!) year of participating in this marathon project on Instagram

This year I’m sharing a look into my creative practices every day with 100 Days in My Studio.

 

2023 was a year of 100 spirals

Some of the pieces I made for the 2023 100 Day Project are available in my store
