Latest Painting

September 22, 2018
Just a short post to show my latest painting.  I'm not totally sure what it's about or how it became this, but I like it.  It's just colourful and different to my normal painting, a bit more abstract.

I'm also working on two other paintings, a blue lady and a strange self portrait which is me from the inside of my head outwards.  It's kind of a picture of my inner world and all the things which I like. The first, which is in it's very early stages is kind of related to trauma and trying to manage those feelings when you know are going to come up when you need to do something . 

I'll try and get round to finishing them both next week.  

Today's Sketch

July 29, 2018
I've been enjoying the cooler weather today and, for the first time in a few weeks, felt in the mood for some art.  I did this sketch of Mike Patton (singer from Faith No More, Mr Bungle, Lovage, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, etc).  He's one of my favourite singers and he's been one of my favourite celeb men since my teens.  I had a poster of him on the side of my wardrobe and love Faith No More.  He's still hot in my eyes, even though we've both aged a bit since the days of having him pinned on m...

My Latest Creations

July 2, 2018
It's been a while (to put it mildly) since I've posted anything here and I recently got talking to someone about my art and my website and thought I should give it a tidy.  Once I started tidying things up I realised I didn't really stop blogging for any particular reason.  I just got out of the habit.  If I can get out of the habit then I can get back in the habit, so here I am.

I thought I'd share some of my latest creations.  I've been having some hormone issues and that's really inspired m...

Goth Summer Clothes

May 7, 2016
I have quite mixed feelings when it comes to the summer.  I rationally know that the sunlight is really good for my mood and depression but I find it really hard to find things to wear and feel comfortable.  Part of this is that I'm not particularly comfortable in my skin and would like to drop a couple of dress sizes.  I'm kind of okay with this during the winter months as I can be covered but as the weather warms up I feel really uncomfortable. 

I decided to have a look on polyvore and see ...

Wire and Felt

April 12, 2016
I've not done a blog post for quite a few weeks as I've been quite busy work-wise and have been feeling really creative.  I've been playing around with a few different mediums; I've made a few new items for both shops, been needle felting and experimenting with making cold porcelain (an easy to make air drying clay) and I've made a little sculpture of a blue woman.  I've also had a commission to make a piece of jewellery for someone and have been working on this too.

Here's the new items I've ...

David Bowie and His Influence on Goth Music

January 24, 2016
Like many music fans across the globe, I was really saddened by the news that David Bowie had passed away.  Although I didn't own tons of his music, just a couple of best of compilations, his influence can be heard throughout my music collection and the bands I listened to growing up and today.  I think the theatrical approach he took to his to performances and the way he challenged the gender norms, wore make up and was never afraid to experiment made him a great influence on the whole goth ...

Happy New Year

January 1, 2016
I don't really get into the whole New Year thing or go out and make a whole load of resolutions.  I prefer setting myself goals on my birthday and tend to stay in or just see friends on New Years Eve.  This year was especially low key but I really loved it.  I'm having a bit of a spring clean and declutter and have made myself a list, room by room, which I have broken down into sections for each area of each room and have been crossing bit's off as I go through the areas ditching things I don...

Bright Colours

December 19, 2015
I was having a bit of play around last night and made this picture.  It's done with a variety of materials including inks, acrylic, glitter, salt and marker pens.


Its much brighter than my usual art but I had fun making a bit of a mess and playing around with this.  I especially like how the salt has reacted with the water and inks to create an interesting spotty pattern in the background.

November 30, 2015
I've brought myself some fab new jewellery making glue so that I can now make rings and stud earrings and things like that.  It's great :)  I've already made myself a bat ring and it's standing up well so I've made some new items for my shop, including another ring and some cool spider earrings.

First up, these razor blade and flower earrings;

A floury cross ring;

Spider stud earrings;

Bat stud earrings :)

And this glow-in-the-dark bat brooch, which was a bit of silliness and made for me ^v^

I have...
