A fresh start for 2023
I've had so many good ideas rolling around in my head lately that I decided to take the time this year to make some space, both physically and mentally, for realising these dreams and encouraging those creative promises to come true.

How Nicholas Wilton and ART2LIFE changed my life
Sometimes when we are at you are at your most lost, the Universe answers your question with an opportunity. Browsing facebook, I came across Nicholas Wilton from ART2LIFE who was running a free week long course as a taster for his yearly abstract painting course called Creative Visionary process (or CVP for short). I watched the videos on design, value and colour and followed the live calls and suddenly I started to see the world through new eyes.

Looking back and going forwards
Everywhere I look I see mantras about how we should live our lives. Don't look back, have no regrets, you can't change the past, be in the present, follow your dreams, look to the future! I say you should look back. Look back at your failures and successes and use them positively to help develop a style of working that reflects your current ideas.

So a couple of days ago I was really excited to be invited to take part in the Art2Life Kitchen Table Art Project online discussion! The theme of the 90 minute episode was all about Slowing Down and was about our relationship with gardening and how we notice and live with nature in our daily lives

Chatting with Nicholas Wilton on Art 2 Life Kitchen Table Art Project
Last night was an exciting evening for me, as I had been invited to appear as a guest artist on the ART2LIFE weekly Kitchen Table Art Project video call. The theme was Slowing Down and was all about our relationship with gardening and how we notice and live with nature in our daily lives. More specifically we spoke about ways in which we could use these things as inspiration for our new art works.
