First time blogger…

I have decided to write a blog. I’m not even sure what a ‘blog’ is and I don’t like the word ‘BLOG’ but that’s besides the point.

I have ventured into Twitter, Pinterest and Etsy just vaguely but I really need somewhere I can really natter on about my art practice to my heart’s content without invading anyone’s ‘timeline’. I get so many questions asked about my work on Facebook and I need somewhere I can direct people with a genuine interest in what I do. Where to start? Where to start? I fear if I start at the beginning I will never catch up with myself so I have decided to start right here at the present with the work I am creating right now. This way I can dip in and out of the past recollecting past influences and inspirations describing how they have affected my present work and how they might be used in future work. I should give a brief explanation of my art practice to start with though. Here goes………
