Crossing over from Watercolours to Acrylics

I had spent numerous years doing landscapes in watercolours and I loved the detail that you could include and their delicate nature. However, I then began searching for a means to paint in a freer style, but whatever I tried with watercolours didnít really make the grade for me. Fortunately, at the end of the year, I became aware of what people were doing with acrylics when you didnít really set out with a fixed picture in mind Ė ...

A floral escape

I have been obsessed with flowers for as long as I can remember. As a little girl, I was fascinated by any garden I was in, wanting to know what every plant was and (when I was allowed) I would excitedly pick and examine the flowers. Now in my late twenties, I have gathered an increasingly large collection of botanical books and have developed a hobby of collaging. In this process, having photographed my favourite images from my flower ...

The challenges of developing your own business

As the festive season once again comes upon us and the planning begins, I find myself deliberating whether Card inspirationz should continue.

The card business is indeed a competitive market and I receive wonderful feedback ...

The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth.

The talent of makers and artists needs a release, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers to exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more.

Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor and purchaser, helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.
