Art of Ancient Egypt
Just finished a commission and started another, this latest
one from my Wildlife Art of Ancient Egypt
collection. It's lovely to be getting back into these paintings
again, and it's taking me right back to my wonderful trip to
Egypt in 2008. The Goose
of Meidum, Abydos
Hieroglyphs and the
from Tutankhamun's tomb are
three of my favourites and getting reacquainted has been like
a reunion with old friends!

I'm really looking forward to teaching some art
classes and workshops in the summer. Firstly, my regular
'Adventures in Acrylics' at Gloucester arts & crafts summer
school, then a highland
wildlife art course at the inspiring Aigas Field Centre
in Inverness-shire, and then back to Gloucestershire for a Wildlife
Art Workshop at the
Bird and Deer Park. Can't wait!

other Stroud artists, I'll be opening my beautiful studio to
the public on two weekends in May as part of the Stroud Open

Looking forward to seeing you!
