Australia is on fire. The world is on fire. Unless you have been living on a different planet over the last few days, you will know about the crisis on the other side of the world. This is something that I feel very strongly about. So many people think that because this is happening on […]

This is a project that has been bubbling under for a few weeks. I’ve held off launching it fully until after the Open Studio here at Wayside House on 7th December, but I’ve already had a lot of interest so I think I will explain the reasoning behind it. Some of you will know me […]

From an early age – well about 12 – I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a beauty therapist. Not a beautician, that’s different. I wanted this so badly, but teachers told me that I should go into catering because I was very good at cookery. There weren’t courses in beauty […]

At school I would wish so hard that we would run out of time and the lesson would end so I wouldn’t have to read out loud. I thought about this today as I was driving to The Kitchen at The Wharf in Langport –  my hosting venue for Somerset Art Weeks. As a child […]

Something different is emerging. It may not be everyones taste, but I was recently asked to create a piece of art for a client using a small amount of her fathers ashes. This felt such a normal thing to do, that I jumped at the chance. It was such a beautiful idea, and just seemed […]

Now, don’t get me wrong, some people are very happy in their jobs and live their whole life doing what they do never wanting or needing to change. I know I was. I always wanted to be a beauty therapist. From the age of 13 when I had to choose options at school, I knew […]

“…and all because it snowed!” a client said this week. Things seem to be moving very quickly, but that’s me all over. I’ve learnt a lot about manifesting and gratitude over the years. Dream boards, setting intentions, releasing your expectations and allowing the universe to do its thing. Little did I know the non-ski holiday […]

Since I’ve been working more within the art field, I’ve come across people who have no idea what a ‘commission’ really means. It’s either something they have never thought about, as they have never bought an original piece of art or, they have no art on their walls at all. Is it the word that […]

I’ve always been pretty consistent with my blog writing, but I’ve recently lapsed. It’s been too long between posts, and for those who only follow me here, I apologise! I’ve been spreading myself across a selection of social media to find which avenue works best. It seems they all do! Not everyone uses every platform, […]

It’s been a long time coming, but we have finally had the ski holiday we missed out on last year, when the Beast From The East scuppered our flight. If you are new to this blog, then read about the turning point here. I’m not a natural born skier. You know this. I didn’t learn […]
