Taking Full Responsiblity for Your Life

I love taking the opportunity to look honestly at my experiences and see what is really below the surface. Not get stuck in what is happening but see what the ‘message’ is, what I know is true underneath it all.

This first one I’m showcasing here on my blog is … Continue reading

Silk Painting: Refilling Gold Liner from the Tubes to the Bottles

We all have our habits and one of mine in silk painting is always to use the little plastic bottles with nibs for drawing my resist lines. I’ve never liked the tubes. It’s just one of those things. But a few days ago I realised I was going to have to order some more gold resist as I have a silk painting workshop coming up and saw that I didn’t have enough for the participants. So I went online and … Continue reading

And it’s with great joy that I often browse through the photos, picking pictures out here and there to illustrate writings and newsletters.
