The phrase - Stop the world I want to get off came to me this morning. Is that what the world wants us to do? Has Mother Nature decided, right you lot, you just aren't getting it are you? I've warned you, I've rocked you, and you just haven't quite got it. Has she decided that she needs us all…

I've been away for a week and away from the local news, only seeing posts on social media that were an escalating frenzy of vicious supermarket fights over toilet rolls, and conflicting news about who should self-isolate from potential coronavirus and who shouldn't. I woke up this morning in a bit of a flat spin! Should I go and shop…

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 the opposite side of the…

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 my work with clients,…

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 therapy in every college, and…

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 I was SO scared of…

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 so right. I was surprised…

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 what I wanted to do…

"...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 last year due to the…

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 puts people off? I do…
