Walk in the garden

When I was home in the Highlands recently i went for a walk round Calder Castle Gardens, with my mummy. It was such a lovely hot day and the flowers were beautiful and the bees were busy at work. I found this very inspirational and just plain beautiful!

Highland Hospice

My friend has just told me she and her boy friend will be running theBaxter's 10k on behalf of the Highland Hospice. I wanted to spread the word about this but also reveal some thing i am very proud of. My mother was the original founder of the Highland Hospice and it was 21 last year. I am so proud of her for achievements with this charity. A charity that i know has helped many families get through very hard times and has let the terminally ill pass with dignity. Here is a link to the Highland Hospice.

I just wanted to vocalise the pride i have in my mother and tell the world about this amazingly supportive charity.

new half years resolution.

I can't remember if i made any new years resolutions in january but if i did i REALY didn't try to keep to them at all. SO... i am making one that will begin on the 1st of june. I am going to practice guitar properly again! I have been listening to a lot of new music recently and it has inspired me to get practicing again. Once when i was younger i was kinda good and i want to be good again.

This is my guitar. She isn't my favourite guitar i own. My favourite guitar is at home being kept safe from student life but once i move into my new flat i'm going to bring her down to Glasgow and play her again. I'm actually really excited about this. Lets just hope i can remember what to do!

artist i'm loving right now.

I have been a fan of Joetta Maue's blog, Little Yellow Bird for a while now but silly old be only discovered her website last week.

I discovered her when i started using embroidery hoops in my own work. Which is kinda odd but i live it when you find artist's using similar media.


i just found this picture on this blog and it has made me crave those oily hand made donuts our baker at home sells. I don't realy like sweet things but they are GOOD!

So my third year at the Glasgow school of Art has come to and end. Now all i ave to do is get my final year gread back! Actually quite excited about this as i feel my work has taken a great leap in the right direction. Here are a few bits and bobs from my assessment.

I have to admit i'm very glad this year is over. It felt like a bit of a struggle at the end but i am so excited abut my final year at art school beginning. Lets just hope the summer is nice and doesn't drag on too much!

crazy stuff

Ok so i have made a sensible list. Now i am going to make a list of all the crazy things i want to do before i die.

1. learn to fire dance
2. learn to fire breath
3. swim with whales/dolphins
4. sky dive
5. run a marathon
6. go sphere-ing
7. shoot a gun
8. travel the world (this should be on both lists)

Ok i used to have a list the length of my arm for this one but i can't remember half of them.

Again... i will change this and add to it over time.

This is fun!

Growing up!

I am moving flat soon for a wee change of scenery and i am having to do a very grown up thing and buy my first bed. I have decided that i am going to make a list of all the grown up things i am excited about doing/buying and see how many i have done/purchased when i turn 30. (in 8 years) I'm going to need a big list but i think i might do this in sections. It takes a lot of thinking.

1. buy a bed
2. redecorate my home
3. change my nephew's nappy (he's one and i've got out of it so far.)
4. rent a one bedroom apartment
5. buy a book shelf
6. fill book shelf
7. read books in book shelf
8. buy a crockery set
9. learn to sew/knit/embroider
10. learn to drive.
11. baby sit
12. buy a car
13. buy a good pair of boots that WILL last the winter
14. tell some one a am in love with them.
15. sell a painting.
16. have a solo exhibition.
17. go on a holiday with just my mummy
18. think about babies.
19. have a meaningful chat with my big brother
20. graduate

So these are not in any order and some of them are very random but its nice to think about these things.

i should probably add
21. decided what i'm doing after i leave university.

silly girly floral art.

My work this year at scholl has been focusing on feminine imagery, such as flowers, floral fabrics, lace and general girly things. I will go into more when i knwo why. I think i just like girly things in general. One thing i have been using id a flower loom. I love the delicate little flowers.

cup cakes

i have found a new love for baking. I think it has some thing to do with the love heart shaped cake tin my friend got for her birthday. Its so cute!

phillip toledano's piece days with my father is a beautiful journey. I never thought i would feel so moved by photographs. these photos have made me realise what i lost when my father passed and have made me realise how important looking after my beautiful mother is.

i love you both more than you can know.


It's April 1st and i haven't been putting things up on here as much as i wanted. Been procrastinating an awful lot but also busy with university stuff. I will sort out some photos of work soon.

I'm on my Easter holidays right now and want to sort things out on my computer and i'll post my finds on here. My photos are in a mess! it'll be a big job but i really should do it. ah!

Ignoring you...

I haven't done anything on this in a while mainly due to the fact i haven't done any work i like that much recently and I've be ill so i just thought I'd let any one who comes on here know. I will put some new work up soon and some more old stuff. I like to compare work from different years so I'm doing it for all to see. 

Hope you still like the blog :)

Trip to New York

Went on a wee trip to New York, NY to visit a friend on exchange. Had such an amazing time. Love every minute of it. It snowed which was lovely, bit of a nuisance to walk through, but very beautiful! I did far to much shopping but I was in New York, what else is a girl to do.
