I don’t need to tell you what a difficult year 2020 was. We all know it. We got through it. And although today doesn’t look too different from yesterday, we needed a “New Year” right now, more than ever. For me 2021 brings big changes. This is a brief update for those interested. What’s old.… Continue reading 2021 – A Welcome Change
Earlier in the year, during lockdown I made a painting that I felt was a turning point. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but something unlocked in me – a joy in the act of painting that I don’t think I have really known before.

At the moment the majority of works are for sale through an arts publishing house (Creative Fine Arts), but I have also made one special one in a slightly different style (“Look… Continue reading Caz Art
“Weird and Wonderful” the local newspaper called it. This is the exhibition that sneaked up on a small town and helped launch its annual arts festival in style.

Unused to the limelight… Continue reading STAFF ONLY Exhibition Review – Stroud
I’ve been looking through old sketchbooks and notebooks lately. I’m sad that I don’t really keep an active sketchbook these days, but I’m very pleased that I did in the past – especially as a young woman.
