Sharing Talent

Art by Jullia 
"The beauty of things exist in the soul of those who admire them"

I must admit in this world of art I am constantly meeting the most wonderful of artists. Some have no idea just how talented they are. I recently gave a demonstration of my watercolour techniques at the Mall Galleries in London during the SWA Society for Women Artists 150th Annual Exhibition.  At the close of day I shared coffee with artists who had come to watch me in action.

I could write a very long blog entry but instead I would  like to refer you to Jullias blog. But please don't just read her description of her day at the Mall Galleries. Please view her amazing  collection of portraits. This morning I forwarded her art to "Derwent Pencils" who were equally impressed.

Thank you Jullia, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and thank you so much for such a wonderful  entry on your blog about me. I am really  touched by your words.


I have many emails and messages to respond to at the moment so please bear with me if you are waiting for a reply. Working on my book and next years schedule is my main focus but I will  be in touch soon!


For those who are interested I am now on Twitter!

I had the great pleasure of being with Jullia and Jean at the Mall Gallery, whata superb day. I totally agree with your assessment of Jullia's work. She deserves more recognition and making Derwent aware of her was very kind.
