An Easter treat for you

Happy Easter!

Hey there,

How’s your Easter going? I hope you’re enjoying some spring sunshine wherever in this beautiful world, you are.

I’ve been doing a little spring cleaning myself, in particular on my email newsletter.

Don’t you hate annoying emails that don’t relate to what you love? Sending everything out in one newsletter I know I run the risk of bothering you with stuff that doesn’t really interest you. And as the lady said

‘Ain’t nobody got time for that”

So from now on, just tell me your interests and where you are and I’ll only send you what you want to see.

There are three options. You can tick one, two or all three.

I usually send my general newsletter out about once a week or whenever I’ve got something I really want to share with you. The creative entrepreneur and painting newsletters will arrive much less often.

If you haven’t already signed up then you can do so at the bottom of the page.

Thank you so much for joining on this newsletter. Be sure to keep in touch, anytime, just by hitting reply to any email.

I can’t wait the share more good stuff with you.

All the best

As a thank you for taking the time to sign up (at the bottom of the page) I will enter you into a draw for this mounted, special edition print, ‘Feels like rain’ valued at €75. (Draw closes April 2nd)

That’s it, Simples.



And I have another treat for you. I know, you can thank me later :-)

I listen to a lot of podcasts while I paint or work. Interviews with artists, writers and makers from all around the world who inspire and fire me up. I also listen to lots of creative entrepreneurs, self employed business owners and bloggers and I’m constantly learning so much from them.

Here’s an interview that I think is a special one.

Krista Tippet from the On being podcast series (well worth checking out) interviews one of my heroes, Mary Oliver.

If you haven’t met Mary Oliver let me introduce her.

“Often quoted, but rarely interviewed, Mary Oliver is one of America’s greatest and most beloved poets. In this rare interview she’s speaks on the wisdom of the world, the salvation of poetry, and the life behind her writing.”
Really, this is worth listening to.

Listen here.
