Looking forwards


The What & The Where

Throughout 2017 I’ve been running an online program called TWELVTY in which we explore the color wheel one month and one color at a time. It’s been a fantastic journey (which isn’t over yet: we still have orange-yellow left to explore)

What’s really beautiful, is within the group of creatives brought together by TWELVTY, there’s such a diversity of talent & range of expression. 

From painters to weavers, textile artists, photographers, mixed media creatives and writers. Between us we are much more than the sum of our parts.

When you take a subject like color which can be applied to most every medium, it translates such variety of techniques and media and manifests a constant source of inspiration:

I see that embroidery and it inspires an idea for a photo series; I see this painting and the idea for a video starts to come to life. The drawing which tells a story, inspires a song or a poem.

Ideas are cross-pollinating all over the place!!

When I set out on this adventure at the beginning of the year, I really thought it would be a one-off. But so much has surprised me along the way. TWELVTY soon began to gather momentum, to take on an energy of its own, and it seems like it doesn’t want to end here.

So I’ve made a couple of little tweaks, and I’m excited to present: 

TWELVTY 2018: What’s new?

The structure has shifted:  Instead of each month dedicated solely to one color, we are quickening the pace of the color steps in order to spend a little more time exploring the territory for our color adventure.

This gives us time at the start of the year to get to take a bird’s eye view, get to know the the color wheel, and gather our colors together.

Then we’ll take each segment of the color wheel in a three week block.

At the end of our journey there will be space to consolidate what we’ve learned, and bring it all together.

As well as all the resources I’ve gathered and curated for each color through this first year of TWELVTY, I’m also planning something new!

Something colorful and fun! Something that will bring joy to your inner kid (or actual kids – this could be a family project)

Each color segment will have a step-by-step illustrated guide where I show you ways I like to play with mixed media. You can use these for inspiration, or your own techniques, as in each color we are going to add to our year long project: To create a 3-D Color Wheel!

This will be a resource you can come back to again and again when you ‘re looking for ideas in your creative practice.

We begin the journey in the new year, but registration is open now

I think it speaks for itself that some of this year’s Twelveteers have already joined up for a second trip around the color wheel in 2018!

 I’ve reduced the price this year to make it accessible to as many folks as possible. The cost for the year long adventure is just £97.00 GBP

Flashback: Color, Color, Color!


IMG_9429Last year I had the great pleasure of producing an online class for 21 Secrets all about color. (If you know my art – you’ll know this is my thing!)

In the class I teach you how to make a really fun variation on a color wheel, using collage and mixed media painting techniques, to inspire new ways of combining colors in your mixed media art. This would be fab as a school holiday project for creative little ones!

And another 23 teachers (yes – this time there are more than the usual 21) share how they use color in their art.

This week there’s a Flashback Sale!

I don’t want you to miss out: today is the last day you can join TWELVTY!

What is TWELVTY?

  • It’s an adventure in color that runs throughout 2017.
  • It’s an enormous feast of resources to inspire your creative practice.
  • It’s an insight into my creative practice with weekly newsletters and videos.
  • It’s a community of like minded artists and creatives.
  • It’s an exploration into working with a single color at a time.
  • It’s an opportunity to build a body of work through the year.
  • Exclusive TWELVTY discounts in my Etsy store (where the fruits of my one-color arting appear at the end of each month)

………………….and so much more!

I’ve made the decision to close new registrations at the end of February because  TWELVTY has really taken on a momentum far bigger than I expected! It would simply be too much to catch up on beyond this point.

Will TWELVTY run again next year? 

Right now, I really don’t think so, it’s taken over so much of my time and become all-encompassing. I love it – but next year I have other adventures lined up so it certainly won’t repeat this same format. It’s a real now or never!

Sign up today and you’ll get instant access to everything we’ve done so far. I really look forward to exploring the rest of the color wheel with you!


If TWELVTY isn’t your thing, but you’d like to be first to hear about my colorful doings and things, hop on my mailing list here

(Your email is absolutely safe with me, I’ll just pop by and check up on it time to time, feed it raisins & chocolate, maybe sing to it for a while, that sort of thing.)
