'Make Your Mark' creativity play day

Inspired by nature, 'Make Your Mark' is a play day where you can try mixed media techniques in a fun and creative, supportive environment. I am a collage artist and use textured and patterned papers that I create in my studio. We will create a mood board of your inspiration. Using paint, mono print, lino cut and print with handmade tools you can create a stash of papers to take home to use in your creative work be that collage, journalling or as backdrops for your product shots and media shoots. I provide all the materials as well as refreshments so you can have a hands on day. Here's some feedback from last time: #makeyourmark #workshop #art #markmaking #oneday #trysomethingnew #textiles #p

January - new beginnings and soul nourishment

I'm good at new beginnings. I love a list and a plan. I love the letting go of the old and the potential of the new. But then there's sticking to the plan, keeping on keeping on. I'm learning to do that. I can end up setting myself high goals and being disappointed if I fail. I am learning to set more realistic goals, and to check back in and celebrate my achievements. I love my creative life so much I sometimes forget to work hard at the other areas of me. Last year I learnt that I need balance. So I recommitted to yoga and found an amazing teacher of Dru yoga. It's fun and grounds me back in the moment and in my physical space. It's leading me to take better care of myself and I am explor
