I've spoken before about my love of art. Art class was the only place I really felt comfortable when I was at school. When I left school I painted portraits in the evenings which is what lead to me working as a photographer. When I became a mum I stopped painting, it was a place I used to lose myself in for hours and hours and having that uninterrupted time when you've got a baby is not really possible. I have really missed it though and recently I began to think about it more and more. Oil paints were my weapon of choice back then but after a few years away from the brush diving straight back in with the oils and a canvas felt a step too far so I dusted off my water colours and sketch pad. Even though my first painting is turning out to be a bit of a disaster it feels like home and I vow to paint some more!!
