Hi and welcome to my very first blog post!
I thought for my first post I would give a little background of myself.
I have been a creative person all my life, I think I was about 10 when I decided the dream job for me was a Botanical Illustrator at Kew gardens (after seeing it on tv). I went to Art college and went down the channels of following this dream to realise I could not specialise in Illustration until my 3rd and final year! So instead of spending 2 years doing what I didn't want to, I chose the path of Fashion and textiles and later Interior Design. After giving up a career in Interior design I opened a craft and dollshouse retail shop in Devon ( from 2003-2005). I sold alot of my own handmade cards and gifts as well as arts and crafts materials.
