Miniature House - for sale on ETSY

I have recently completed this miniature Celtic longhouse, to join the collection that is for sale in my online shop.   Click here to view my Etsy shop

Hand carved dragon heads and engraved stone door pillars are just some of the features on this small house. It stands about 7" tall and blends in easily to hide between the plants in the garden.

Drover's Road - Pastel on display at Art Show

I have been painting in pastels, which I have found to be a great way of painting landscapes. Here it can be seen hanging on the wall at Rosemary Hale's art group show in Derrington Village Hall over the weekend.

I have created some miniature art works, one of the first being this Celtic Cross. The work measures 15cm high by 10cm wide and is mounted on wood, which can be hung or displayed on a small easel - as this one is.

There will be more to follow soon.

Trying my hand at sculpture

I have recently been trying my hand at sculpture using copper wire as a frame and then sand mixed with PVA glue, and once the sculpture has dried decorating it with acrylic paint and glitter.

I am now working on a fantasy creature, a woolly duck - it is part finished, just got the Alpaca wool to add. I will post a picture as  soon as its completed.

Painting of the week - Standing Stones

Completed a new miniature  - a triptych, mixed media using stones, sand, foliage etc on wooden mounts

It is inspired by standing stones found throughout the UK - I am fascinated by our ancient history and the stones in our landscape, the mythology that surrounds them also fires my imagination....

New miniature Diptych

I have just completed a new miniature diptych -  measuring 30cm wide and 10cm high. I have used rock and sand on a wooden base for the work, with acrylic paints.

As a lot of my work is 3D multimedia it is hard to take prints and so I am in the process of working on miniatures of the work, plus other stand alone subjects for the miniatures as well.
