Connecting with Local Artists

December 10th, 2016

Lovely Ladies Series

September 19th, 2015

Being a digital artist, I have found that the quality of my work is not only influenced by my level of technical expertise with the software I am using, but also with the quality of the digital models available....  

My husband and I love to visit San Antonio, and a couple of years ago we decided to visit the San Antonio missions. I really enjoyed the trip, enjoyed learning the history of the missions and took literally hundreds of photos. While I had some lovely... 

The Story Behind Here Without You

February 10th, 2015

My husband and I met in an online chat room, back when they were all the rage, and maintained a long distance relationship for five years, before our wedding in 2007. "Here Without You" is one of my earlier digital artworks, created in DAZ 3D, creat... 

The Great American Road Trip

February 10th, 2015

I'm originally from England and last year my husband decided to plan a cross country road trip for us. It really was the trip of a lifetime and we came home with a treasure chest of memories and hundreds of photographs. Read more 

The Hay Field

February 10th, 2015

As I mentioned in a recent blog post, I have recently got back into painting with soft pastels. After several years of no art in my life at all, and then a few years creating art digitally, it's been fun, interesting and therapeutic to put pastel to... 

It's a cold, wet, dreary day in Texas. The sort of day to curl up on the sofa and read a book, or watch a movie! It got me thinking about a 3D digital artwork I created some time ago called "Rainy Day at the Lake." Read more  

It's a chilly, drizzly, bleak day today. Not the sort of day we expect here in Texas in springtime. But while the garden is enjoying the rain, I revisit a digital artwork I did last year, featuring a field of our iconic Texas Bluebonnets. 

Pink Orchid - Fun with Textures

January 26th, 2014

I had fun trying out different textures and blending modes on a photograph I took at the RHS Gardens in Wisley, England. 

On December 21st, I participated in the Fantasy Art Land Show at JoMar Visions in Houston. I really enjoyed the day, met some great artists and learned a lot that I can use at future shows. 

Snap to Grid

December 25th, 2013

Every year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to l... 

Artsy Cats

November 10th, 2013

I've always been an artsy, crafty type. Going back to when I was single and living at home with my parents, I loved painting, sewing and macrame etc. Even when I moved to the U.S., I enjoyed working with my hands and being creative. Through circum... 

Fall is my favorite season. I love fall colors, even though we really don't get much in the way of fall color here in Texas. It seems to me that the leaves stay green until they just drop off the trees here. That could be why I enjoy creating art... 

It was my birthday last week. We won't go in to details, like how old I am, but I wanted to give a shout out to my wonderful husband, Eric, who willingly parted with a hefty chunk of change to replace my three year old iMac with a new 27 inch iMac. ... 

There are a number of online communities for digital artists: Deviant Art, Renderosity, Cornucopia 3D to name but three. Each site has thousands of member artists, many of whom inspire others and give of themselves by creating tutorials for other ... 

When Light, Space and Time Gallery announced their 3rd annual "Figurative" competition, I was hesitant to enter. I wasn't sure that anything in my portfolio would fit the criteria, but then I remembered "Dance with Me", which I did in 2010. 

Throughout the years, many great people have given their thoughts on art, inspiration and creativity and these messages hold true even in this day and age. Here are just a few quotes about art and artists that I hope you will enjoy and find inspir... 

Do You Believe in Fairies?

April 21st, 2013

A few years ago, I came upon the most delightful book at a lunch-hour book fair in the downtown Houston building I worked in. It's called "Fairyopolis, A Flower Fairies Journal." 

Inspiration from Life

Happy Easter

March 31st, 2013

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter. Blessings to you and your families. 

A few weeks ago, I wanted to create a 3D scene in Vue that I could use for Easter products. After struggling to get the exact scene I wanted all in Vue, I ended up doing a mixed media piece. I started out by rendering a scene with a cluster of Ea... 

I'm what is known as a "self taught" artist. That is to say I never attended art school, although I did take art to "0" level at school in England. When I transitioned into digital media, I discovered that digital artists of all types are accusto... 

Finding Time for Art

January 29th, 2013

This post is intended as a bit of a grumble, but I'm fully aware it may turn into a rant! The problem is time - or lack of it. I find myself struggling to find time to do all the things I would like to be doing. There just aren't enough hours in th... 

And the Winner Is...

January 29th, 2013

The whole experience of participating in my first art exhibition was very enjoyable. Everyone I met, from Show Chair, Daniel Brent, to Suzanne Buckland, President of Artists Alive and Well, Patrick Palmer, the Juror for the exhibition, and all the... 

Today was a first for me. One of my artworks was accepted into a Juried Art Exhibition, sponsored by Artists Alive and Well, and today was the installation of the various pieces on the Upper Concourse at 1600 Smith Street, in Houston Texas... 

The Making of Winter Snowscape

December 30th, 2012

I spent a lot of time over the Christmas season on 2007 listening to Jethro Tull's Christmas Album. It's still one of my favorites but then it was even more special as it had been the first Christmas gift Eric had bought for me, before we were marrie... 

What is 3D art?

December 28th, 2012

One of the difficult things I come up against when discussing my art is that many people have no concept of what 3D art is. After all, the end result is a 2D image on a computer screen, or if you have it printed, on paper or canvas -- right? 

This is the time of year when we start making plans for the coming year -- things that we want to start doing, such as being organized, remembering to blog on a regular basis, meeting with clients, work on our art, designs, garden -- whatever our pas... 

Give Thanks for Thanksgiving

October 7th, 2012

Even though it's not even Halloween yet, my mind has moved on to Thanksgiving. (Kind of like in Hobby Lobby where the Halloween stuff gets puts out on the shelves while I'm still trying to find July 4th decorations, and the Christmas decorations are... 

Well here we are in September already. It's hard to believe summer is officially over (this being Labor Day weekend and all). Looking back at my blog, I see I lagged a bit in August with only one post. I'll see what I can do about stepping it up a...
