Blogging is a strange thing to do because it is extremely personal and yet accessible to anyone who cares to read it. However I am an artist, I have a business and increasingly I feel I have something to offer. The internet has opened up a whole world to me – I adore facebook, I even learned to quilt on youtube! There are such numbers of people out there it is not hard to imagine someone else who paints, is married with grown up children, has a passion for watercolour and lives with six cats…. So I see this blog as not really about me, but a sharing of a life that seems ordinary and yet is extraordinarily satisfying. It is about the things that make me happy and keep me excited about painting, places and people. It is about the artist part of me – nothing else.
