Posted on Tue, 26 Jun 2018

You are a true artist. The way you've painted roses in words is just perfect, you didn't push too hard with the brush but the colours of your thoughts are still bold. A summer's day brought to life.

Posted on Mon, 25 Jun 2018

Lovely Rhiannon, leafy filters, what more could you wish for. There is no better place than the shade to watch nature play out on a hot day. Unfortunately I was working in the sun today and felt quite sick in Reading, it was baking!

One of those times when as

Posted on Sat, 16 Jun 2018

One of those times when as children we experience internal volcanos of emotion, shock at how parents treat us, the audacity of their failure to listen. It's builds indepence and resilience but it's also an awakening, as a human you're often alone...

You've illustrated the terror

Posted on Fri, 02 Mar 2018

You've illustrated the terror of losing control of your faculties here, like files all stored neatly in your head suddenly scattered in disarray. The frustrating thing is you know it's there but you cannot access it. I've no experience of...
