Funny Old Life

It has been such a long time since I touched this blog or anything else to do with my art practice.  I was given a diagnosis of MS after having severe sight problems for months.  This seemed particularly cruel for anyone creative.

However, now that the dust has settled and I can see once more (a bit dodgy round the edges maybe), I am ready to pick up where I left off with a greater respect for myself, my health and going with the flow.  It certainly gives you a new perspective on life.

I am currently in Australia and picked up a sketch book and some crayons the other day to 'play' with whilst I am here and have gained inspiration from gallery visits and the beautiful landscape and colours.  For the first time in ages, I am looking forward to getting back into the studio and working.

Thanks for your kind thoughts Jen. Just visited some of your work - lovely stuff and more inspiration for me.
