Previous Life Counting £££’s!

A long time ago in another life I was an accountant. Not in a firm but in commercial enterprises working in open offices with teams and departments and deadlines. I traded in my career for family life and became a jack of all trades from managing two children to wiring the telephone in, fixing broken things, redecorating, cleaning drains, doing stuff to save paying anyone else and building lego.  Remember this…


Creative Backdrop

My children grew up, my husband had a radical job change and it transpired that the vision we had as yuppies in the 1990’s would not come to pass. However I feel blessed to have been driven to be creative as it has sustained me throughout years where I have not been academically challenged. Along the way I have learned many new things in connection with my craft and gained an Illustration Degree. Having a creative interest I have found that there are always too many ideas and too little time. I finally found my feet this year after what felt like a long evolution to a technique of making images that I am really happy with. I hope it shows in my animal characters and other paintings that I am so fond of creating.
