2011 was the year I decided to pick up my paint brushes and get back in front of the easel. I think it really all started with my upholstery class which began in January, after a few short weeks I had completed a drop-in stool and quickly moved on to a more challenging project (two Parker Knoll arm chairs - still in progress!).
2011 may not have been quite as productive as I'd have liked but it has certainly been a massive step in the right direction.I finished my first painting in years, started two more and set up my blog.
As well as the paintings I've made lavender filled hearts and orange marmalade for Christmas presents (I think last year was home-made chocolates!).
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read visit my blog in 2011, I look forward to sharing future work and news in 2012.
Happy New Year!
