What a week! If further clarification was needed that I’d made the right decision, then it well and truly came. This past week I’ve been so happy and busy. I’ve sold more paintings and confirmed commissions that were in the wings. I feel like it’s all happening and I’m loving it.
It’s also been a strange week. I had so much admin to catch up on last week that not a lot of painting happened. This week I’ve been back in the studio starting some new works and finishing off some others.
Here’s one I’m currently working on.
This brings me to an important point. As subscribers to my blog you receive my updates every time I post a new one. You also receive my newsletter. I’m the first to admit I’ve been very quiet on both fronts! Now that I’m full-time as an artist, I’m have committed to doing both regularly. I am going to give you options for your subscription now so you get to see what interests you most. The ways you can keep in touch are by:
- Weekly email notification of new blog posts and/or
- Monthly newsletter
- Fortnightly available art update
What to expect
Blog posts will come out weekly, around Wednesdays. These will be a mix of interesting studio news and insights, and creative encouragement. They will also include the Studio Sunday video.
The newsletter will go out monthly (!) and will be a good one to sign up for if you enjoy my art.
The available art update will go out fortnightly (on a different week to the newsletter) and is for collectors, galleries, designers and anyone interested in buying my work. It will have all the details of where paintings are exhibited, their price and how to purchase.
The purpose of all these different ways of staying in touch with my art journey and paintings is so you can choose your level of involvement. Select all three if you like! You won’t actually be getting much more than you have up to now. (The fortnightly available art update is the only new offering.)
A big part of the reason I’m doing this is because of the GDPR privacy laws that were enacted in Europe. While I’m a long way away, I still have some readers in Europe, therefore I need to comply.
What to do next
If you want to keep receiving content from me in all three categories above, there is nothing you need to do! I will continue sending you blog posts, newsletters and you will receive the fortnightly available art update.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I apologise for the dry content of this post, but it had to be done. Have a happy week!
