I'm tri-vocational; I'm an artist, copy editor, and Christian.I've always been creative, using watercolours, calligraphy, textiles, gilding and crochet to name a few. Nothing like experimenting!
I have a passion for oil painting and this is what I'll be doing to raise funds for our church project.In my spare time I try to keep up with my family, walk Harry the dog and fit in karate where I can.

Event details

24 hour Paint-a-thon

This is a bit bonkers, but...I start with a blank canvas at 10am and complete an oil painting over the next 24 hours.

People tend to think that painting is a relaxing, gentle sort of hobby for women in floaty dresses or blokes in colour-smeared rustic aprons. It's not. It's blooming hard work - even more so when there's a deadline and high expectation. I'm normally shattered after 8 hours, so this is a massive challenge!

The painting will be a portrait, set in the chancel of the church, where I'll be completing the work. Please feel free to come along and bring your own artwork just for fun, or a mug of strong coffee to keep me going!
The final painting will be auctioned and prints will be available for sale.
