Welcome to my July 2012 newsletter.
I am well aware that there has been little going on with my newsletters
over the last year or so and for that I do apologise. However, I
hope this month marks a fresh start and you will continue to enjoy
insights into my processes and inspirations.
I am planning lots of ideas for future editions,
as well as news of exhibitions, videos and regular exclusive images
for you to download and print out at home.
Look out next time for an opportunity to win a copy
of my new printed notebook!
There will be new developments on my website too
in the coming months which will include more galleries to view,
more information and photos on my workshops page, and a much-requested
online buying facility.

You can see some of my work at the Lesser Town Hall,
Kirkcudbright as part of WASPS Studios summer exhibition until August
11th, from 10am to 5pm daily. There is a good variety of work on
show from artists in my studio building, including paintings, glass,
printed textiles and woodblock prints - well worth a visit and all
work for sale!
Kirkcudbright Art and Crafts Trail is a lovely weekend
event taking place from 3rd to 6th August from 11am to 5pm over
the four days. It showcases the wealth of creativity that abounds
in Scotlands Artists Town with lots to see
and do across the weekend. My studio building will be open so do
come along and see what goes on! www.artandcraftstrail.co.uk
As some of you may have noticed from recent communications,
I have started doing 2-day workshops this year - limited to only
6 people at a time and taking place in my studio.
The first 2 workshops have now taken place and the
feedback was extremely positive. I have 2 further workshops lined
up later this year, and both are now fully booked.
Keep an eye on the newsletters for notification for
dates for 2013 workshops - those of you signed up to these newsletters
will always get advance notice before I announce them publically.
Video: Graphite and Ink
This months short video is called Graphite
and Ink and shows the creating of a drawing using graphite
and liquid ink pen. In the past I have kept most of my sketchbook
work to myself. Here I show how a drawing develops and talk about
the importance of line to me. I hope you will enjoy it. (By the
way you can see more of my drawings in the summer exhibition in
Kirkcudbright mentioned above)
