It was a difficult decision to change the focus of my website from my old arts and crafts site, where I posted every day for over three years. As you can imagine that was a lot of work and I loved the results. Judging from the lovely comments I received and the followers I built up, many of you did too. However, after much thought, I decided I wanted to do something different – and the result is the site you’re on now. You can view a lot of sketches in the Sketchbook section of the website and I will continue to add to these. There won’t be as many blog posts on this version of the site as there used to be but I will update and add new posts as and when I see something that interests me. I’ll also be doing much more on my social media channels and including some of the types of ‘interest pieces’ I used to post on Rag Tag Magpie. So, make sure you follow me on Instagram ) Pinterest and Facebook to see what’s interesting me in the art world at any given time!
The best way is to sign up for my newsletter (link). I won’t send you too much, I’m probably going to send out a monthly email and this is the best way to stay up to date with what’s happening on the site. I also post regularly on Instagram so if you don’t already you can follow me there
Click on any picture image in the main category sections. This will open up the product detail. From there you can mouse over the image for close up detail, click on the magnifying glass to see large image, or click on one of the related gallery pieces underneath to see alternative image versions
I don’t have a general shop available as part of the menu. This is a deliberate choice as I wanted to keep the website simple. However, if you want to see all paintings that are available for sale, simply click on CART in the top menu. Whether you’ve bought anything or not, the cart page will come up. You can then click on the Return to Shop button, and you will see all paintings for sale, and can view them how you want – by price, latest or popularity (as all paintings are originals, this uses some pretty super-duper secret algorithms to show which items are getting most interest)
