I procrastinated for years about creating a website. I wanted it to showcase my work attractively and in a way that reflected me, but didn’t know where to start. Too much of a Luddite to do the whole thing myself but wanting to have an input and to be able to add photos and edit without too much of a palaver (and without spending 1000s), Becky Sumpster from Design Somerset was the answer to my prayers. She has made the whole process so easy, enjoyable even, and not as expensive as I feared. I can’t recommend Becky more highly.


I have several of Clare Ellwood’s bronzes and could not love them more. She captures all the beauty, movement and character of her subjects in traditional bronze but with a contemporary edge. She has a number of limited edition bronzes for sale and is also available for commissions. Do have a look, they’re stunning! Clare is based in Wincanton and London.


Any artist needs access to a good framer. I am incredibly lucky to live very close to the Martock Gallery in Martock, Somerset, who have done all our personal framing for the past decade and also for a large number of my clients. They print off the photographs from which I paint, dry mount my work (essential to prevent watercolour paper from warping) and frame all my paintings. What’s more they are such a lovely team and always go the extra mile.

Less art related but I wanted to share with you…


There are occasionally times in life when we could use a bit of extra help, whether it’s a child with exam anxiety, coping with bereavement or you need help to stop smoking, improve your public speaking, boost your self-motivation etc. I can think of no better person to turn to than Trevor Bedford. Based in Sherborne, Dorset, he is a former Chartered Accountant and Financial Director, so is fully aware of the pressures and effects of modern life. With a string of qualifications, Trevor combines hypnotherapy with coaching and is incredibly approachable and easy to talk to. If your motivation and energy need a boost or you have concerns you’d like to address, Trevor is your man.
