Dorset Studio Designs

BlogPublished November 27, 2012 at 14:01 No Comments

Well it is official. 2 months ago I become a designer of children’s wall designs. I am working exclusively with a small local start up company and the designs will be available soon from their online shop! It is lovely to be able to design for them as having never used design software before, they really are starting at the beginning of a design process. After years of experience with design, it has been a real joy to turn my skills towards the children’s market. My first design is almost complete, just need to do the cutting plates. So, with this in mind, I am extending my web page presence to include ‘dorsetstudiodesigns.com’ More details and previews to follow soon.

Off to go grab a coffee before completeing the next stage in the design process. My head is so full of ideas sometimes it is hard to get them all out on paper!

I am going to be dropping some work of to a lovely gallery in Blandford that specialise in hand made crafts, and I am taking in some of my fabric pictures for her walls.

It is like a treasure trove in there for really unique gifts for that special person, or just something to treat yourself with. Well worth a visit!

Photos of my new stuff I will post up in a few days, including some in between shots :-)

Been sat this morning making a start on some designs for children’s products, starting with a pirate ship, and I will also be doing some butterflies and fairy ones too. I am looking forward to getting some of these done in watercolour to show the client :-)

I have had an amusing and challenging time lately drawing up an old British Racing Motor for a banner for a lovely man in Tisbury. I am looking forward to how he reacts to the finished article :-)

I have had a wonderful time at this years DACA held at bovington school. it was my first year as the Fine Arts Director, and thourouly enjoyed hanging all the artwork for the exhibition. I was also able to resume my demonstrating while there, and did several topics, including a watercolour poppies painting, and also work done on a Hebridean Ram I am currently painting for myself around my busy portrait painting waiting list.

The local reporter for the Blandford Forum Focus took a lovely photo of me, that she was kind enough to forward on.



I look forward to next years display.

After an extended stay in Essex, we are now home! Much designing for logos, and some commissions for other designs (coming soon!) I also felt I needed to change my twitter background to reflect the calm in the studio.

I have planning to get done for the dorset Art and Craft Association, as I have taken over the Art Director roll for the next 3 years, so will be discussing more at the next committee meeting on Wednesday. I shall find the time to complete a painting of a Hebridean Horned Ram that I can include as work I will have on show there too. All good things, and it is just round the corner now… August will be upon me in a flash!

Dorset Art Weeks is over….

Well, that was a hugely exciting time, and i am so glad hubby and I put all the extra effort in to getting the garden right for the studio warming too. I had an over whelming response for people wanting art lessons, for acrylics, watercolours and fabric work. so, I now have an intense time getting the house straight and working out orders from many of the new canvas prints I am offering. we are off to Essex to house sit for a lovely couple while they go off on honeymoon. I will take work with me, but will take it as a good time to reflect on Art Weeks 2012, and start preparing for 2014!

Many thanks for all those who came and help to make it the success it was!
