Welcome

Hi and welcome, I’m Ceri.

I help people who want to be more creative find ways to make art that they enjoy. I am especially keen to work with people who are recovering from mental illness and help them to start living their life again. My clients enjoy spending a couple of hours at a time not thinking about their troubles while they are learning ways to use paints, pencils, paper and other supplies.

I also make paintings for people who love bold, colourful art and want to be reminded of nature’s beauty. I particularly want to help brighten up any dull space and think you might be redecorating or moving home. Or maybe you are ill or grieving and some colourful art would help lift your spirits.

Another example is the cost of a good holiday. If it rejuvenates you and helps you cope better with your day to day then its value is probably higher than its cost to you. Travel insurance is another good case in point.

Why You Should Buy Art …

Years ago I lived in Africa with my family for a few years. My dad loved the country and the wildlife with a special interest in the birds, having always been a keen birdwatcher. As a result we spent a fait amount of time visiting nature reserves. A peculiar feature of business there was that artists would sell their crafts and art at the side of the road. This is how my dad acquired a few nice pieces depicting birds and the landscape that still remind him of the things he loved about the area to this day.[br][br]

Turning Your Art Journal Pages into Xmas Cards

Art journaling is a great way to explore your creativity largely because it can be very private: you make a page and then close your journal and no one else can judge you worthy or unworthy. But what if you want to share your art? I know I enjoy showing friends and family my art […]
