Welcome to my new blog!

After months of procrastinating, here I am starting a blog! I’m quite a technophobe so hope I will get the hang of things once I’m up and running!

Lots of exciting things happening at the moment…       I’m currently working on a new body of work for Devon Open Studios 2014,  7 – 22 September at       The Cafe, Topsham (great coffee and food!)                    My theme this year will be ‘Words from Literature and Song’ – I’m planning to show 9 new works             (5 completed, 1 in progress and 3 to go!) I will also be showing my new Limited Edition Prints, which can be seen on my Jane Perkins website  A literary-themed quiz will accompany the exhibition with the prize of a print of the winner’s choice.

I’m also currently re-making some of the favourite ‘Old Masters’ with a view to Art Licensing –  since Christmas, I’ve been approached by 4 different companies in the USA with a view to putting my images on various merchandise. I’m aiming to start with 4 popular images for a company which makes jigsaw puzzles  – they want to add an extra puzzle to find objects in the picture, once the jigsaw is made.

Last week, I received this image from Cindy Morris, a retired art teacher from San Fransisco. Each year she organises an art project with children at her granddaughter’s school to raise money for the school. Their Sunflower picture from found materials is so wonderfully naive and vibrant – I love it!
