About me

Location Bristol, South-West, United Kingdom
Introduction Hello there, I'm a bit of an eclectic person, and a magpie when it comes to hobbies and interests - I collect them. art, music, writing, swimming, walking, sewing, reading, poetry, photography, history.....you name it. I only need nature and my imagination to inspire me, I'm lucky enough to live close to the Severn Estuary, and the green areas nearby, which I love to explore with my husband and our dog. Where creativity is concerned, I bring the outdoors indoors. I'm an all weather girl, there is no bad weather - just the wrong clothes. One thing I love about England is the ever-changing weather system and it's effect on our landscape. There really is something beautiful/startling/stunning outside our window every single day. And it's good to look for it.....
