A happy new year.

I am so excited for the new year! I haven’t made a single new years resolution which is exhilarating! One decision I have already made though is a lifestyle choice which is to be kinder to myself. I can highly recommend it! I’ve been practising the art of mindfulness. And no, it really isn’t a…

Crafting in the new year.

This holiday has been great for getting back my crafting mojo. It went missing back in 2016 and I’ve finally found it hidden in my fabric draw. I’ve been painting again and have really enjoyed being at peace with some canvas and my old brushes. And I’m chuffed to bits with my latest make! Remember…

Block printing on linen

Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve done any crafting but since I’m now hibernating i thought it was about time to tackle some projects I’ve been meaning to do. Back in the summer I bought this beautiful Indian wooden block with the intention of printing some fabric, roll on a few months and I’ve…

Mindfulness & other stuff.

Hello, We are hurtling towards Christmas at an astonishing rate which means a new year is upon us, which means I will soon be turning 40. Well, July actually, but somewhere in your late 30s you enter warp speed and it doesn’t matter what you do it just seems impossible to slow it down, believe…

Winter styling 

Hello, as we’re on the eve of December I thought I’d share a few pics of how I start to sprinkle some festivity through my home. The tree doesn’t go up for another couple of weeks but I like to add tiny touches to get in the mood. Pine cones and colourful dried rose petals…

Colourful September 

Hello, I just love September! It’s one of my favourite months of the year. I was picking flowers last week for my pop-up flower stall and thought I’d share how colourful it was. My allotment is full of dahlias right now and I’ve been visiting gardens and adding other varieties I’d like to my list….

A threatening sky

Inspired by the dramatic sky’s we’ve been having in the uk this month, I’m  enjoying painting skyscapes at the moment. It’s all about the sky!  I’m layering washes to create sky’s with real movement. Yesterday’s inspiration came by my walk over the fields, luckily the rain held off long enough for me to get back…

April showers.

   I’ve been painting a lot of landscapes just lately which is very unlike me. I’m seeing a very strong shift in style that seems to of come upon me, and I’m embracing it with open arms and water laden brushes.  It’s quite something for an artist when ones style changes on its own, without…
