December NEWS

Well, as I'm preparing to wind down for the Christmas break, a bit of breaking news for the New Year... I am going to be TEACHING!!!
More info to come, but see for more info.
A reminder to order any PRINTS before the Monday 13th DEC, as my printer is closing on the 17th.
CALENDARS, Originals and Cards available after that, but remember to take Christmas post delays into account, if you want things posted!
Yuletide greetings to you all, and see you with more updates in 2022!

So, a few months have passed, and although I have not updated my website, I have been busy with the oils and canvas in my studio.
I have painted some more 'Coastal Towns' for my 2022 Calendar, which will be added to my website very shortly. Orignals and prints will be able to buy.
My calendar is currently at the printers, but you can put your order in now through my contact form on the Links page.
They will cost £12.50 inc. postage.

So, it's about 3 weeks until the FROME FESTIVAL and FROME OPEN ART TRAIL 2021!!
We're busy organising the 'Covid risk assessment', planning when to hold the 'Meet the Artist' session and planning which cakes to bake to go with our tea and coffee, and looking forward to meeting all our visitors!
More details to follow but we will be at St.Marys Church, FROME, BA11 2LN.

Oh my goodness, I've been so busy, I forgot to write any news for April.
Well, I have finished my party house painting! This is based on a house I lived in in the 90's in Bath. The characters are loosely based on the people who lived there, or visited.

This month I have (mostly) been working on a painting based on a house I lived in in Bath, in the late 90's.
Also influenced by one of my favourite children's books, Hocus Pocus. (can't remember who it's by...will find out).

Originally starting as a personal project, with a view to making prints and cards, I am now thinking of co-creating a poem book with my Mum!
Here's a little sneak preview...

So what would you like to see me paint in 2021?
As I do calendars, once every 2 years, I'm thinking maybe a coastal theme..
Have you got a favourite coastal town you'd like to see in an Amy Yates style painting?
