Hi there folks I hope that this Blog post finds you all happy healthy and enjoying the beginning of the school holidays.
After three years of verbal nudging from family and friends the time has finally arrived – yes my new YouTube channel has finally gone live with my first video now showing!!! Thank you all for your patience and encouragement it truly has made a difference and is appreciated more than you know.
So here goes:
I’ve also added a brand new page to my website too that is linked to my YouTube channel:
If you’d like to see a video covering a specific subject or medium just let me know by dropping me an email at:
And I’ll do my best to oblige
Moving on I’d like to announce that I have been invited to exhibit at this years EWA (Exhibition of Wildlife Art) due to run next weekend Friday 28th July – Sunday 30th July at Gordale Garden Centre, Burton, S Wirral, CH648TF. Here I’ll be not only exhibiting my work but demonstrating too. I’d love to see you over there, don’t forget to drop by and say hi if you can 🙂
Moving onwards into August – usually one of the busiest months in my calendar and yep this year’s August is no exception, and as if I’m not busy enough already I’ve added, in conjunction with ‘Wildlife Art Experiences’, a series of ‘Tuesday Taster ART Workshops’ commencing on Tuesday (there’s a surprise lol) 8th August! These taster workshops are primarily for those of you wishing to dip your toe into the waters of the art world without having to take on a whole day or weekend workshop (although they’re not as testing as you might think). Due to run from the Shropshire Falconry centre set in the glorious surrounds of the Shropshire countryside these workshops have something to offer everyone. A 4 hr timetable will enable you to really get to grips with the materials and subject, the tuition and materials needed are supplied so that all you will need to bring with you is a smile and a willingness to learn. It’s here that I hope to ignite, encourage and inspire you creative flame 😉
If you’d like to know more or reserve a place on this ‘Tuesday Taster’ or one or more of the subsequent dates please drop me an email and I’ll be more than happy to help: firstname.lastname@example.org

Moving on to the highlight of my year every year (and actually the place where I met my aforementioned Mr Wonderful lol) – the biggest date for my diary the BIRDFAIR in Rutland! ‘Birdfair’ is one of it’s kind and attracts in excess of 124,000 people over three days, now that amount of visitors can’t be wrong. It boasts art marquees, photography marquees, optics marquees (binoculars and telescopes not the alcoholic kind lol) but before you say argh! There is a marquee with a full licensed bar and restaurant lol, as well as lecture marquees, marquees hosting wildlife and birding holiday stands, books, collectables, yep it goes on and on …. There’s even a huge charity auction …..
Last year Birdfair raised a colossal £350,000 for conservation via Birdlife International (and no I haven’t put the decimal point in the wrong place lol) proving that when people stand together things can really happen! This year ‘Saving Paradise in the Pacific’ is the project for Birdlife International and I’m so proud to be a part of this event again.
If you’ve never been then please check out the Birdfair website: www.birdfair.org.uk

Okay I think that’s enough for you all to be getting on with for today.
So it’s over and out from me for now
Be blessed and thank you once again for following my endeavours.
Looking forward to chatting with you all again soon, love & hugs Kerry x
