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.

Trying Out New Styles – Manga Love

Sometimes it happens … you can run out of enthusiasm for your usual way of creating. Then it’s time to shake things up. Why not try a different style? I am doing this currently with a book I have by *** on Manga and have reimagined some of his art, picking up some Manga tips in the process.

Easter Card Bunnies Card Designs

Easter is fast approaching and thoughts are turning to chocolate …… and the Easter bunnies on this year’s card designs are turning to eggs, chocolate or hatching ones.Easter is a great time of year to be art journaling with plenty of inspiration for characters and colour. There’s bunnies, lambs, chicks of all sorts of birds and not to mention all the weird and wonderful ways you could combine them to create unique/unusual characters on your journal pages. What about an Easter dinosaur? Of course children’s characters are great in pastel Easter colours and dinosaurs are great children’s characters. Do you have a child who would enjoy creating an Easter dinosaur with you?

It’s Too Expensive!

Sometimes it really IS too expensive … but there are also other times when something’s value is higher even than its price point. Let me try to explain my thinking ….

Value and Cost are not Always Equal

A great example is Amazon Prime shopping. Although I know the prices are inflated I find the reduced stress of not having to navigate busy shops to maybe find what I’m looking for is often worth it. Sometimes cost might be far too high for the value you might place on an item for example, for me designer shoes cost the earth but do not have as much value as arch supports. 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.
