Planning workshops very soon.  Felt, ceramics, art, decorative painting, mandalas, textiles.... maybe a mandala with all these things!
Inspirations are from nature folklaw, surrounding, sacred countryside.

We can only, truly know each other with our hearts not our minds. To follow  your heart will lead you to dreams that thought can have no dominance.....the mind is image making unfounded, and limiting.  The heart is the true master of your beautiful world. We can be in our hearts always and truly love.......

Here comes the dawn. 4am mid summer last year. This is such a magical time of day, when the blackbirds are the first to sing and then theres a huge chorus of  bird song. No other sound at all!   I love the soft light waking up the flowers and diamonds of dew on the grass. This is when I walk bare foot in the garden to feel the energy renew all around with the coolness of the morning air.
Celebrating the morning

The colour contrast of the gold light of the candles with the indigo light of the dawn

After a few hours of dream time.      The brightest orange opens its petals to the sun.  Californian Poppy.
Where Bamba goes at night, I do not know........

The weekend before I had to leave this place for a new home, a rainbow (it was so close!) gave me a cheery farewell.   The sweet doves, that are always sitting there, so content.

I'm having an open studio this Sunday - 11 April and  Sunday .18 April.  Working hard changing the hallway and living room into an exhibition space. Its so much more relaxing when you can show your work at home, with all creature comforts around you.

Painting at Dawn in June last year.

A little company while I'm painting in the Garden!
Magical colours just as the sun begins to rise, the deep blues and purples glowing in the mid summer sky. This is my best time to paint. Everything is awakening from the starry sleep.

I've been teaching a little girl called Issy. Painting with some amazing swirly, moving watercolour paints. She is so creative.  Making a magical space in one of the rooms to inspire me and all the people who join the workshops. This is my favorite place in the house, to dream, to connect and to be creative with every moment.
