A WARM WELCOME INDEED TO MY BRAND NEW BLOG!
I’ll regularly be adding loads of new imagery, news and videos to this page, as my life and work spiral upwards to new heights!

The old stable space downstairs in the arthouse is being transformed again, now that the installation (see above) is finished.
Now I’m prepping my pop-up shop for Guardia Sanframondi’s big wine festival Vinalia, which begins on the 4th of August- yey!
The small drawings on brick which made up the ‘congregation’ of La Chiesa Dentro Di Me (The Church Inside Me) installation are now being handed over to new owners… one by one they’re being bought, and taken off to different corners of Italy.
The shop will have some new large canvases which I’ve been working on this year, as well as a selection of paintings from the WHAT PUMPKINS DREAM children’s book, which is VERY soon going to the printers’!!
You can follow the SHOP @ the ARTHOUSE event via Facebook.
And finally: this is what the stable looked like when I first saw it: three large sacks of dust from a century or two of chicken and donkey waste, one extremely heavy mezzanine of insect-infested wood, a ton o’ junk and useful old stuffs, and a home-made lumpy cement floor!
Four years later, the old stable is finally clean, dry, with a delicious new mezzanine in fresh wood- it serves as my summer bedroom and studio, and an occasional pop-up shop and event space: keep and eye on this blog to see what I’m doing with it next!
Speak to you all soon- and thanks for your patience with my first steps in WordPress!
