I am on Patreon - Come and Join me

I took the plunge and started a Patreon Page a while back, as I move forward in my bid to create free content for those interested in the use of creativity and the effect on our health and well-being.

My passion is creating and sharing how the Arts and Creativity can impact our health and well-being and in the process help you spend more time using creativity to unlock your creative talents.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a place where you can support artists who create content you love, so they can make more content. It's kind of like a membership with different tiers, the cool thing is that you get rewards for each month you support, whether that is just once or on an ongoing basis. 

I have been an artist for over 15 years, a mother, a carer and a creative soul.  I looked after my mother for over 17 years and have seen first hand the changes that take place in a loved one living with dementia and the impact on the family.  I was not longer able to care for my mother and a few years ago and had to put her in a nursing home which was devastating.

Art Heals

I used art and creativity as a tool to help me through the 17 years and saw first hand the positive impact that it had for me as well as my mother and I went on to share my art and creativity with men and women who attended a day care center specializing in dementia care.

I believe everyone should have access to the arts across the board. Creating and sharing what I am doing, encouraging participation and hopefully being inspiring means so much to me, especially when you can create important resources for free. The importance of the arts to our lives really came to the forefront of what I was doing when my mum started showing signs of Alzheimer’s which is now in the severe stages and while the effects were devastating, Art and Creativity and improving both of our nutrition helped us navigate the uncharted territory, and there has and continues to be so many treasured moments. 

The Arts gave us the space to express ourselves in ways that words could not. I have been creating and developing resources for everyone and anyone who just wants to be able to create and find themselves in the midst of their situation too, I also started a free Arts and Health network sharing and curating information about Arts and Health events globally. If I can make a positive impact on just one person that would be a blessing.

Subscribe to a Tier on Patreon

My goal is to help you find ways to incorporate art and creativity into your life and to find those pockets of time.  My art and workshops are designed to inspire you to dream, to remind you of all that you already know, and to help you discover the best parts of yourself.

I want to create community; a space where we can all share and spread our creative wings together. I want to share the ins an the outs of this imperfect, messy and beautiful journey and I want inspire you on your own journey.  The ability to create isn't reserved for the special. It is for ALL of us.

Your soul knows there is more,  Your mind has forgotten. My work aims to remind you while you increase your creativity and unlock your hidden talents, Join me.”

Arts and Wellness Café - Relaxed


Come and join me as we look at ways we can use our creativity to relax.  Also how can you break down your creative tasks and use them in those moments where you are forced to wait in a que, or an appointment.  These small tasks are ideal to slot into your day.

I also share ways in which you can get your art journal started by creating a series of background.  If you only have a short time to create you can prepare the background by adding colour then going back when you have more time.

Let me know how you use your creativity as a tool to bring more relaxation into your life.
