Spring Cleaning - Interior Styling Tips
Spring is a perfect time for some interior design revamping.  This doesn't have to be expensive and may not even been that obvious when friends come to visit.  Cushions - colours and textures - are a great place to start. ...
The Challenges of Working at Home
Now that I’m working from home the challenge has been making a place for my art practice that fits, without jarring, into my home and family life. I love my home, my husband and my family – and my garden.
Hidden Gems
I’m having my wedding band and engagement ring redesigned, a tangible reflection of my life journey, memories, creativity. Be brave, find soul mates, step out – take risks.  Life is wonderful.  Expect the unexpected.
Pushing the Boundaries
Gardens feed the soul, helping create a balance and inspiration for my art. Time away from painting is therapeutic resulting in new ideas, renewed energy and a clearer mind. 
Moving Home
2023 my studio is now at home.  The great habits and routines I learnt in 2022 are helping me stay focused on my artwork even with the distractions of being at home. When I paint I do enjoy quietness as painting does require a lot of concentration.
My New Studio
Having a beautiful, quiet place to work allows me to focus, without interruption, on my art.
There are always flowers
I don’t live in one of the most beautiful suburbs of Melbourne but flowers don’t discriminate – they are beautiful wherever they bloom.
Changing Directions
Over the next few months, since that initial fleeting idea of, ‘maybe I could paint full time’, I received a couple of very encouraging comments from artist friends which served to jog my memory and remind me of that thought.
Journey With Me
For me, at this time, I find this resonance with flowers.  When I take time and space to calm my mind – to go for a walk, turn off my phone, stop looking at what other people are doing – this is what rises to the surface.
