A special thank you to all of the contributors in this weeks' episode:

❤️Catherine for naming the painting “Maisy Bee"
Working with the Labels team and learning about the big launch of “The Attic” I've been thinking a wee bit differently about how to create cow art that works within their 4 design themes:
Traditional, think country house meets elaborate
Quirky Colour, think something unique and fun (this could be me!)
Shabby chic meets luxe, think creams progressing to luxurious golds
Rustic, think of something unique from years gone by
As well as painting, I love to refurbish old furniture, put the love back into it and I felt inspired to create cow art that matched that furniture. On face value that might sound a little odd but I’ve just got an instinct that this will work. I hope you enjoy watching the process and in future vlogs I will take you to see the display at Labels.
Every Sunday I will publish a short film that will take you with me on my ‘who knows where’ adventures finding inspiration and then back to the studio taking you through the stages of creating a finished piece of art.

I've always been inspired by the INXS lyrics "we all have wings but some of us don't know how to fly" so much so it's sneaked into many of my paintings, sketches and illustrations
Sit with me
I often think it's a phrase, a lyric or a well crafted sentiment that inspires my work. I keep a journal of snippets of sentences or overheard conversations. These often work as prompts for work to begin
