Making the most of a sunny day in-between the rainy ones for a day out with Mark to one of our favourite places. Always going back to simple pencil in my sketchbooks. Out for breakfast, fresh air and trees and some sketching. A perfect day.

I am delighted to share my first guest appearance on a podcast. We had a really enjoyable conversation about creative mentoring which is a part of my practice that I don't often talk about other than with the artists I mentor! Thank you so much to @ruthsingertextiles for inviting me You can find all the info in the link in Ruth's bio. And if you are interested in mentoring with me, DM me for more information.

It's the end of the current series of Making Meaning podcast today! In this episode, I am talking to Gillian Lee Smith @gillianleesmithartist, a Scottish painter based in Northumberland. Gillian and I first met as members of a designer-makers group in the English midlands but we reconnected over Zoom during the pandemic and have had some wonderful conversations about our practices, our mentoring work and our creative ideas. In this podcast we focus on mentoring and talk about how both supporting others and being supported ourselves helps our practice. We talk about the zigzag journey of creative practice and how reflection and talking things through with others really helps to clarify things, to open new doors and to inspire. It's a really lovely reflective conversation to end the series with. I hope you enjoy it! #ruthsingertextiles #ruthsinger #makingmeaning #makingmeaningpodcast #textileartist #artiststalking #artistpodcast #ukpodcasts #gillianleesmith #gillianleesmithartist

Autumn and winter are usually my most productive months in the studio in spite of the cold. It feels like a fresh start after being in the doldrums for longer than I care to admit. ...
