    Inspiring the future - Vlog #4

    I had great synchronicity this week as Emma a young mum of two boys, requested illustrations for her children stories and then Beanstalk the children’s literacy charity invited me to their Gloucestershire launch.   This seemed like a meaningful coincidence of storytelling, reading and inspiration, that I had to share with you - and you might be able to help too.

    As this year draws to a close I’ve been taking a little time to plan the year ahead.   Reflecting on 2017 which included exciting achievements like enjoying the full year of being the Cotswold Artist of the Year and being a Fine Art Awards Finalist for best published artist - sounds so fancy!

    Odette & Pedro's Wedding Painting
