enjoying the journey…

I’ve been a bit quiet lately, that’s because I haven’t been spending much time in the studio and therefore haven’t really had much to tell you. When I gave up my job last year the idea was to spend three days a week in the studio and work two days at my new ‘temporary’ job. […]

am i too literal for abstract?

Does my art define who I am or does who I am define my art – identity crisis??!! If you’ve been following my progress through my ecourse on the blog and social media you will see that I have restarted my lessons of the Unearth Gather Create ecourse again with renewed enthusiasm. Being one of those people who likes to work […]

morning walk

I’m getting into the habit of taking my phone out with me to capture images on my morning walk most days and recording them on Instagram. Today I knew my phone battery wouldn’t hold out so I grabbed my camera as it was a bright beautiful frosty morning - here are some of the images I took. I don’t […]

sustenance/sustain-ance

sustenance/sustain-ance

my word for the year, the meaning of which this week was questioned by my dear husband – his understanding of it was food or drink when the reason I had chosen it was for its other meaning – the ability to sustain something, in particular the forward motion of my creative and business. This […]

My word for 2015

Last year instead of writing New Years resolutions or wish lists a friend of mine suggested I choose a word for the year. I did it last year and loved how it worked for me, and sticking to my word brought me a long way. I was patient, it paid off! I’ve thought long and […]

The winter effect?

So it’s now December and I feel as if we are the depths of winter, temperatures have dropped and I’m finding myself very reluctant to leave the warmth of my house to venture outside to walk the dog. I don’t know where the time has gone yet again, I find nearly another month has passed […]

I can’t believe how fast time is flying by and that it’s nearly the end of November already. I’ve been left my job a month now, and I can’t believe how fast time has flown. I’ve been keeping very busy finishing off my allotted time with Aspire Business Support, working out my plans for the […]

I’ve really enjoyed the first week of my new ‘changed’ life - for those of you who don’t know I’ve just left my job of 13 years and am now pursuing a less stressful existence, working less hours in paid employment and more in paid self-employment. It was a big step for me to make but I’m […]
