  • Fresh Art

    05 May 2017 / Art Tips, Design

    Lovely watercolour pieces have been leaving my studio since my last blog!   Watercolour is a medium I do enjoy and have a great appreciation for.  This is, in part, because its process can be unpredictable.  The wonderful mystery of how a few brush strokes creates an awesome effect is also the same mystery which can result in a simple brushstroke…

  • What comes from the heart

    12 August 2016 / Art, Design

    Some charitable acts are driven by love.  A beautiful person made a request to help a friend for a good cause with no other stipulation than that she liked the Happily-Ever-After-Hearts that I had recently completed for a wedding.

    16 November 2015 / Art Tips, Design

    Knowing which primary colour is behind your colour selection is an important step when choosing colour for your home.

  • When Space is a Premium… mind over matter!

    12 October 2015 / Design

    Living in a small home I know what it is like to have no room to unleash your creative passions!  One of the places I often work is in our main living area over the dining table where I can spread out and enjoy the natural light from the garden. However, at the end of the…

  • Can Art Change You?

    12 August 2015 / Art, Design

    When a person creates art, or when they experience other people’s art, they are making a connection. More than just about the making of art or the simple seeing of something new, art is about the meaning we seek both in ourselves as well as in our connection with the world. Sometimes we would like…
