My work + other colour stories

My love of colour started when I was little, I would always be changing the colour of my childhood bedroom, from my perfect lime green to having half pink, half purple walls.

I used to dive head first into my Gran Susie's embroidery threads. She had the most magical array of colours!

Sometimes as a child I liked to lie on the grass and watch the clouds go by and be totally engrossed in its blue.

My Gran and Granda's garden was always full of beautiful flowers and the colours were always a feast for my eyes. I loved to see the every changing colour of my Granda's tomatoes in his greenhouse. I still smell tomato stalks today and think of my Granda Jackie.

My Granda Jackie was a miner but he also was an artist, he loved watercolour and I still use his watercolour palette today. My Mam is also a very creative bee, she would always make drawings for me and my school friends to colour in.

I am a part of an Artist card collective - www.greylingpost.com
