The Big Chill Swim

10th & 11th December 2016 I shall have a stand with artwork in the marquee this year! The Big Chill Swim is Chillswim’s fantastic winter swimming gala, held at Low Wood Bay, on Windermere, Cumbria. This year I shall have a stand with artwork – prints, cards, ‘Swimflakes’ wrapping paper – and I have also designed the event image that is printed on the t-shirts and event goody bags. If you’re attending the event, I shall also have commemorative postcards, free to everyone who comes and finds me to claim them. I’ll be in the marquee. I shall also be…

Christmas Cards… for swimmers!

Yesterday I did something I’ve never done before – I drew a picture especially as a Christmas card that I’m not going to be sending to people. This isn’t because I don’t like it, but the only Christmas cards I’ve ever done have been for my own use and strictly not to be revealed until Christmas, and then any surplus I’ve put up for sale the following year. This year I rashly though I’d offer a card design done especially because a couple of people had been asking if I would be selling Christmas cards on a swimming theme. This…

2016 swimming calendar under construction 1

Calendars! Already!

Apologies for mentioning next year now we are barely past midsummer, but these things take time. I am planning next years calendars. It’s about time that the Cat-of-the-Day pictures got a look in – there have been over 180 posts on that site and hardly any of the pictures have ever been printed, and I have been pleased to keep an occasional diary of both my cats’ activities and my swimming activities. So next year I am thinking of getting two separate calendars printed – cats and swimming. No swimming cats. Those of you who prefer the fairies and their…

Somerset Arts Weeks: 3rd – 18th October, 2015

“Swept Away” I shall be taking part once more in Somerset Arts weeks, however  there will be a change to the usual nature of things… “Normal service is interrupted: Nancy has gone swimming, and returned with sketches and scribbles both humorous and evocative, of a year spent jumping into cold water, through summer and winter. In anticipation of SAW’s theme of Momentum, she didn’t stop, even in February. Digital drawings created from memory and imagination, without the aid of a waterproof camera. Fairies will also be available, but this is the year of the mermaid.” Opening times: Wednesdays – Sundays,…
