A Work in Progress
I was sat with a steaming cup of blackcurrant tea, looking out of my window at the sun rolling westwards and a flock of gulls winging their way across a powder blue sky - for a minute I wasn't in Yorkshire but at the coast.  I watched their silhouettes, the...

The Magic of Using a Sketch Book
(Sketch book magic unfolding) I must confess, I am not a person who uses a sketch book on a daily basis.  I am not one of those artists who creates amazing visual keepsakes within the hard bound pages although I very much wish I was.  I am a random sketch b...

When Solitude Turns to Isolation and What I Do When it Happens
So today, I wanted to write about my experience of what it's like to work on your own, for yourself.  I used to have this rose tinted vision that working for yourself would be this 100% amazing dream job, and don't get me wrong, in many ways it absolutely i...

A long overdue Hello...
(The Magical Garden) Is it really May?  Has it really been this long since I wrote a blog post?  It seems so.  This year is meandering and winding along in its own sweet way, it seems a time of growing and learning and slowing down to appreciate and accept ...

Loving Summer
The summer holidays are well underway here; warm and pleasant days interspersed with monsoonal downpours which leave a fresh, lingering scent that is irresistible and draws you outside to take big, happy lung-fulls.  I have been to Majorca for a week with m...

Something Different
     Hello   It's been a bit of a while since I last did a post, but new things have been unfolding, something new which I'm finding oh so very exciting and I'm going to tell you all about it today.   An email plopped into my inbox a few weeks ago, from Li...

January
A new year I think, brings it's own special sort of magic, it is a space for miracles and secrets and as the short days give way to the darkness that winter slumbers in, I sense anticipation, inspiration and new ideas being born. A new moon and a new beginn...

Labour of Love
(Padstow - new painting) Great news!  After several weeks of a full on love hate relationship with this painting, I'm happy to say that it is finally finished. I did this piece as a commission for Milkwood Publishing, and it will be making it's way down to ...

How Autumn Inspires Me
So it's the end of September, already.  I'm feeling Autumn in my bones, and inhaling the scent of it as I walk my daughter to school.  The morning air is damp and cool and there are small yellow and orange leaves in the gutter, like leftover confetti from a...

Ten Things
1. Bluebell woods in Spring are the most happy, smile inducing places to be. 2.  Letting our newly hatched Painted Ladies into the wild one early morning...well, trying to.  This one hung about for ages sitting on my daughter's hand.  3.  The sea.  In parti...

Something tasty for supper? A brand new recipe over on the blog xxx
I love cooking.  It's a fact that I have more cookery books than I could ever possibly need, but there is something about providing good, home cooked food from simple fresh ingredients that really appeals to me.  Just as I'm ...

100 Happy Days
   Just before Christmas, I decided I'd like to choose a word for 2014.  This word would be significant in that it would illuminate my path throughout the year ahead.  The word had to be something to aspire to, something I could truly believe in, something...
