Welcome, let's chat!
So often I hear myself telling a story about an idea I had or a skill I learned. The visuals in my mind are rich with detail. This blog will give me a chance to share them with you all. I hope you have time to share the inspiration & challenges I have so gratefully received.
The blog could become a storybook looking at how we, and why we, do what we do. A conversation about inspiration and motivators that we respond to.
Click into any of the posts for more detail.
You will find a comment field at the bottom where you could can join the conversation. I'm welcoming contributions to the conversation and will tidy up anything off topic, spammy or rude.
Please share these pages to your friends and family who may like to enjoy the subjects and conversation too.
Keep well & keep creating

I am often asked where did I start? In 2007 when enrolled with The Learning Connexion as a distance learner I was able to attend a week long retreat at Yebo Art Studio! It was wonderful!Posted: 25/4/2007
