Collections


I love sets of things, I love arrangements & collections. When I hear a song I love, I have to scurry off as soon as I can to find the album it's from, find the artist, track down the other tracks. Fall in love again. When my eyes are magnetised by a piece of art, I race to seek … Continue reading Collections

Mermaids & Peacocks


I've just spent a month dwelling in a color I love so much: blue-green, and I have to admit it wasn't easy to move on! In this year full of color, as I journey around the color wheel, I'm devoting each month to a single color, and April was all about teal, turquoise and sea-shades … Continue reading Mermaids & Peacocks

Evolution of a Ideas


I love the dance between the digital and the analog. Set the pixels in place, print and then set to with the tools of a previous age: Actual cutting with actual scissors Actual mess  with actual paste.

I loved the way they … Continue reading “The Creative Flow”

So to Sewing


Inspired by the enormously talented Morwenna Catt and her wonderful quirky stoles, I felt compelled to make something similar... I have all this fabric and trimmings and whatnot, sitting around waiting to be purposed. And what better purpose than a mad turquoise friend. I was aiming for a cat shaped face, but looks a little … Continue reading So to Sewing

More Focus & Trust 1/52


So last night I polished off the first week of my 2015 week by week art journal. Little tweaks and changes.... more emphasis on Trust - I gotta trust in this process, and more focus on the word Focus. Got me thinking about focusing on what this week has meant to me. The big silvery … Continue reading More Focus & Trust 1/52

week by week 1/52


There's something so deliciously enlivening about the start of a new thing ...a new year ...a new book ...a new project In past years I've played with different art journaling projects, from page a day to a page a month.  This time around it's a page a week. So, 2015, here we go! Week 1 … Continue reading week by week 1/52
