Month: February 2014
The event promises to be magical and unforgettable! when else would you be given the opportunity dress up as a Dream Character & join a Costume Parade & contest in the same evening as an Art auction?! and best of all it’s for such a worthy cause! The tickets are selling FAST so don’t delay and purchase yours here: http://www.luciddreamalchemy.com/page/test2
I have taken a more abstract approach to the works I have created for this….my work always has a surreal, dream-like feel and naturally dreams are never clear nor follow any logic (mine certainly don’t) so I’ve allowed them to follow their own path.
‘Dream Abstraction’ – series (2014)
Mixed Media: Acrylic, gesso and ink on canvas 50x40cm
On Friday I taught a one day workshop for 6 -14 year olds at CGP Gallery.
The theme was ‘Urban Wildlife’ – I started by getting the children to draw their school playground in fine-line pens, then make animals/creatures out of coloured paper and magazine imagery which they imagine visit their school during the School holidays and what they might get up to
Tea parties for foxes and squirrels came to mind…
Yes this was my version
This workshop planning is hard work 😉 ………..
This is one reason I love teaching children, they’re so creative and free!
Don’t forget to purchase your tickets for ‘The Dream Ball’ quickly as they’re selling out quickly. The night is set to be unforgettable and all in aid of a highly worth while cause:
Here are two of the Artworks I’ll be exhibiting at the RR Gallery & auctioning on the evening with 50% going to ‘The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education and ‘HELP Counselling Centre’
I’m just waiting for a few layers of paint to dry……….

I’ve been working on a new series for the Dream Ball Auction on behalf of the centre for counselling & phsychotherapy the evening looks set to be truly magical:
My new Artworks which I am creating for the event seem to be taking a new abstract style, I’ve been recording the development as it takes form:
Today I went to CGP Gallery (Canada water) to see the Urban Wildlife exhibition which consisted of works from Primary Schools in Southwark on the theme of inner-city wildlife which children would see in and around their schools:
I found this especially inspirational as on Friday 21st February I will be teaching ‘Urban Wildlife’ drawing classes for 6-14 year olds in the gallery.
The workshops run from 10.30-12.30 and 1-3pm on Friday 21st January or Wednesday 19th with Artist Claire Blundell Jones and are for anyone aged between 6 and 14 years, best of all they are completely free! no need to book just arrive promptly….
