I loved the class. Thank you so much for the tips, ideas, and inspiration. Also, I love the different ways you used the art, for pillows, shirts, and bags; great ideas, and it looked wonderful that way. I look forward to getting my hands into some paint.

Finger painting! I love it! I might have to give this a try with some acrylic paints I have on hand. I loved seeing the techniques you use and how the finished painting can be use on pillows, clothes, etc.

'The Meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose is to give it away' - Pablo Picasso

I love this saying because it expresses who I am!

I love to create and see the outcome of my work, then to give that to someone, what do I get from it? satisfaction, joy, happiness and the gift back of a smile or joy from the receiver that they can take pleasure in it or learn from it....that is why I am here, to teach and pass on the great joy of discovering a new you, experience or technique!..... in giving, we receive and for me that is a two way journey as a student and as a teacher.

My background...well I am a Surface Pattern Designer/Illustrator and Artist, Accredited Art Therapist and qualified Adult Further Education Teacher and I am also a qualified Interior Designer and lover of new beginnings, crafts, adventures, my family, little friends in fur coats (my cats) the countryside, travel and I am a savoury-tooth! (I think I just made that up, as opposite to sweet-tooth!)

I am passionate in creating a living space with colour, texture, shape and using patterns to express who I am and to create a positive emotional effect on the environment; that's why exploring and being inspired by my surrounding enthuses me to create and express my love of design in surface pattern designing and Artworks and in Art Therapy, taking the natural and simplistic details of life to the extraordinary creative expressions in becoming something that expresses my inner-self and to create a piece for someone to love and cherish. I want to help you do the same! 

Please do say Hi, I would love to hear from you and I hope you get as excited, enthused and expressive with my inspiring Classes as I do and I would love to walk with you in your skillshare journey together in my classes! :0)
