Welcome to my events diary for 2019. This online schedule is the place to come to find out what I’m up to and where. As my husband and I are being very free spirited at the moment, from April we will be posting in this schedule almost weekly! As long as you can get to a beach somewhere in England I’m sure we will find each other. If you can’t travel to find me, perhaps I can inspire you to link energies and take part from home…
I am so excited about the year ahead, it really is life changing. With my brave hat on I am planning a six month Art trip in our motorhome around as much of the coast line of England as we can, starting off in Scotland in April (to avoid the midges in the summer!) and working our way down the west coast back home for a pit stop (being blessed with another grandchild in June) then continuing around the south and east coast and travelling as far back up the country to the northeast as possible before home time in October.
From chance encounters to planned visits I aim to let creativity in from everything and everyone we meet. I then want to pass this joy onto anyone who needs to take five minutes out of their day to connect with themselves or the beauty around them and paint, draw or sketch as they feel. That’s why I’ll be setting up my art easels on a beach wherever we are and welcoming whoever is there or wants to come. ( I want this to be a free event all over the country so any sponsors will be gratefully received)
Once back home in Kent for October my wish is to have an exhibition of not only my art but that of the people who have joined me and inspired me, through photographs and original paintings.
Being constantly challenged and out of my comfort zone will I hope develop my art beyond my current imagination. Moving forward artistically, feeding the ideas, sights and sounds of my travels into new paintings is something I dare to dream and relish the prospect.
If there is a proposed event near you or you are organising a creative bash where I might showcase my art, please contact me I would would love to hear from you.
