Pancreatic Cancer Ribbon

A purple cancer ribbon represents Pancreatic Cancer.

Last year my husband, Simon, was Diagnosed with cancer in his pancreas.  He had major surgery and spent a long time in hospital.  The second half of the year Simon spent on chemotherapy.  For his last chemo session, I made this resin-art version of the purple cancer ribbon.

We presented the art piece to the staff in the cancer ward on Simon’s last day, hopeful that we wouldn’t need to return. 

Simon’s first couple of check-ups this year were clear.  We thought he had made a full recovery, but his June check-up showed the cancer had returned, so after a few more tests, it was back onto chemotherapy from August. 

Because of the Covid restrictions, I haven’t been able to go with Simon to chemo this time around.  Simon hasn’t seen my art piece on display, but whether it’s hanging somewhere, or in a storeroom, I’m still proud of my resin art cancer ribbon, and gratefull to the staff of the hospital cancer wards.

This will be a Lazy-Susan

I’ve done plenty of circular resin-pour pieces before.

This one is a little different though.  A friend asked me to make this with colours she chose, which is not that unusual, except she plans to turn this into a lazy-susan!

I’m looking forward to being invited over for dinner (after lockdown of course) and spinning this around in the centre of their dinning table.

Pyramid Lights

Carefully placing fairy lights into the pyramid resin mould can produce amazing results. As each coloured layer of resin goes in, I lay the lights around so they will be visible from each side of the finished pyramid.

Resin Art Video with my Daughter

In January 2019, my husband Simon was stupid enough to take on a YouTube challenge to make a video every day for 30 days.  One day, my daughter Karla was helping me with a resin art pour, when Simon started filming us to make his video that day.

Seeing as this new website is all about my art work, I thought I’d share that video here.  
Check it out…

Video chat leads to resin art

Stuart was quick to mention how much he liked the resin-art I had put on social media. As we video chatted, I spotted some nice art on his walls. One thing led to another, and it wasn’t long before I offered to create a piece of art especially for him.

Lets take the time to talk about clocks. I've made a few of these now, and they all start out with a cheap wooden serving platter.  Just like any other piece of resin art, different colours are then poured onto the platter and spread around until I'm happy with the...

Resin Rabbits

I wrote recently about my little critters, made from resin.  Various colours of resin, poured into different shaped moulds.  When the resin hardens, the mould is peeled back to reveal a little critter that sits in the palm of your hand.

While we are trying to create content for this brand new website, I thought I’d show-off these little rabbit critters.  I especially like the bright pink rabbit.

Serving Platters and Resin

A round wooden serving platter can be many things…

Of course it can be a wooden serving platter, but if you’re creative with colourful resin, it can also become a piece of art to hang on the wall.  With a drill and a mechanism from eBay, your serving platter could even become a clock – but I’ll have to tell you about that in a future post.

The beach look

Take a look at this blue resin art serving platter.  I’ve tried to make the mix of blues and white look like the ocean, and left a gap at one section of the edge for the timber to represent the beach.
