Child’s Play

Added a new page today for my nephew. 

Thought it’d be fun to display the work he gives me as he grows and see him develop his (current apathy for) creativity! 

Age 4

Don’t have any pics of my own from my childhood 😔 except for a few scribbles over my mom’s recipe books and maybe a couple of oils in the loft I did when I was 10, a rose (with help from my dad) and a cheetah.

Ornament Restoration

I’ve been given some old garden ornaments to spruce up. They are the Garden Creatures set I made in the mid 90’s so they’ve been out in the elements for about 20 years now, fingers crossed they still look like the same garden creatures by the time I’ve finished.

I’d quite like to make some new garden ornaments sometime, I keep getting design ideas… Hmm, now remembering my cement burnt, skin stripped, finger tips. Now there are protective gloves, I know this… but I don’t like them, so will continue to complain about sore, chemically burnt, finger tips.
