You need rain to make a rainbow

Monday, 16 October 2017
As I sit here trying to find the words to write this blog post, a part of me wonders if I need to share so much of my personal life in the first place.

It's true, I don't need to say anything at all - but I've been trying to deal with so much recently that it's pretty much all I have to write about.

Where to begin...

A season of change

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Hello October... how did you sneak up on me so quickly?

Honestly, where does all the time go? A month ago we were on the beach basking in an end of summer mini-heatwave and now I'm looking out on trees that are starting to shed their yellowed leaves.

Since coming back to work after the summer holidays so much has been happening - there have been so many changes and it's been quite a lot to deal with, to be honest.

Making memories

For once I'm not going to apologize for my absence from posting here and on my Instagram account. Okay, I lost some followers - something I really can't afford to do when I'm still trying to build an online presence - but my long annual summer vacation will always take priority over everything else.

A growing confidence

Well... I opened my Instagram last Friday morning and found it had gone crazy overnight. My submission to the Draw a Dot Instagram Open Call had been picked as a favourite by Marcus Kan, the curator of the site.

Finding my style

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Today is the day that the Draw a Dot. Instagram Open Call results are announced, so I can finally share the image I submitted. If you'd like to see the full scan, it's on my Instagram.

The illustration had to be an interpretation of an outfit from the Miu Miu S/S 2017 collection. I took a look at the photos and instantly loved the vintage style. Even though I had no idea how I was going to approach this, I knew I had to try.
