Made in May starts Today!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a busy day back in the Clarity saddle. The SHAC at 10 is always a great way to focus the mind. And those girls are certainly Hippy Chicks! Here’s a pic of the Hippy Bus we drew together previously… As I was saying this morning in the SHAC, I spent pretty much the whole week and weekend making, making, making. Making prints, making pots, making nice meals, making cards. Dave too. He…

Floral Alphabet & Numbers

Floral Alphabet & Numbers

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Year of the Alphabet here at Clarity. And May is a super special one for me! I remember drawing this one, one letter at a time, in New Mexico of all places! Each letter represents a flower, so A for Allium, B for Bougainvillea, C for Cornflower, and so on. Also, as you will see when you look at the individual stamps, each letter also comes in two more sizes, upper and lower case….

A SHAC Spring clean!

A SHAC Spring clean!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s that time of year, when the days are getting longer, the sun is peeping out, leaves are starting to appear on the trees, the birds have taken up residence in the Yew trees outside our bedroom window – and are twittering up a veritable symphony every morning! The dawn chorus is quite something! There’s a particular stencil which always springs to mind, when I think of the birds in the trees in the…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I was up with the lark this morning. The birds were tweeting up a symphony outside the bedroom window, the sun was peeping through the curtains – and I just couldn’t lie still any more!

Dave and I even had a deep conversation about Oscar Wilde, Reading…

A very special TV launch – Tuesday & Wednesday

A very special TV launch – Tuesday & Wednesday

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Bags packed, demos prepped, car filled to the gunnels – and we’re off! Paul and I are heading up to Peterborough to the TV studios as you read this, to set up the set for a worldwide launch. I’m both excited and apprehensive about this one. Perhaps because it’s my artwork, (and one always wonders whether one’s artwork will be well received, doesn’t one), perhaps because I always get nervous before TV – even…
