I live in 'Windy' Wellington in the 'Land of the Long White Cloud', also known as New Zealand, or Aotearoa. I also lived in Australia for many years.
I began this blog as a way to keep my creative side alive. I am a high school Art and English teacher of 10 years, and I have also taught English in Korea,which was a great experience. At the moment I am a stay-at-home Mum, homeschooling my three small children. When everyone is fed, changed, asleep, and I have a moment to myself, I enjoy creating new artwork and learning/brushing up on different techniques. Mostly, I started this blog to have some fun.
I love working in a range of different materials, and trying new ones. Living in a small place with small children around it is difficult to get out the inks or the watercolours, so I decided to get myself a drawing tablet, and I can do a lot of the same things on the computer, even more, in fact! When I am drawing with my tablet, it is usually with one hand, while feeding the baby with the other. If I don't answer your comments or questions straight away, it is usually because I don't have two hands free to type...or maybe you will only get a very short answer, typed with one finger. I love receiving your comments and ideas, though, and I read every one.
I enjoy connecting with other arty people on the internet from all over the world, it is very inspiring, and I never run out of ideas. I hope you enjoy reading my blogged adventures in art! I always love to hear from my subscribers, so do drop me a line in the comments every now and again. Better yet, try one of my tutorials, and post your video response under one of my You Tube videos, that would be amazing!
