I got all dressed up for the cold, with layer after layer and then grabbed my camera before heading off down to the park … Continue reading

Mandala Silk Painting Workshops in Bristol

It’s been a while since I last ran a silk painting workshop. And just recently I got that prod again to put out the call and make it happen. I have always taught people within my own home, whether Glastonbury, Malahide or Bristol. But this time I knew it was time to go out and seek a new venue. So imagine my delight when within a very short space of time I had manifested 2 different spaces to hold my … Continue reading

Here Comes the Sun – Bristol in Blossom

We have been truly blessed with beautifully warming, sunny days here in Bristol for well over a week now. It has been a wonderful opportunity to get out and be in nature. A couple of days ago I was out wandering around Vassal’s Park and was amazed at how perfect and peaceful and beautiful everything was. And indeed always is. I decided to simply share a whole load of the photos I took. I found it so inspiring just to … Continue reading

Going to the Art Fairs

Well, I did it again. I attended an art fair over the weekend and it was the first one in quite some time. In fact, it was the first one I’ve attended since we moved away from Ireland so I was dipping my toes into a new area, namely the Bristol arts and crafts market. They always say that you should never participate in any show or fair untiil you’ve been there as a visitor first. And there’s really something … Continue reading
