We took the summer off. Simple as that!
Having taken the time I realise how vital it was to STOP! I had been firefighting for far too long, and had disconnected from my own needs. I was acting like a machine — neglecting myself, but doing everything for everyone else. Eventually that way of being takes its toll. I was on the verge of meltdown, but because I am ME I refused to drop any of my responsibilities.
I literally crawled into July. Then we packed up the car and took off for a month. We made few plans and I did no drawing.
It was wonderful!

Hi there! I realise it is March and
I have been doing a fabulous course in PICTUREBOOK illustration with Adrienne Geoghegan since January. I am loving the course, but the added bonus is all the lovely people that I have met! I think that most of us work in isolation, and it is just so wonderful to sit and chat with like-minded creatives. I have also been re-united with an old friend from college, Ingrid, who just happened to sign up to the Tuesday night ILLUSTRATION course. It has been brilliant to catch up with her too!
We are working away, illustrating and writing! We will be putting up a show in June at Studio 10 just off Grafton Street. I am looking forward to seeing all that we can achieve.
