I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Oh my gosh, Sybille, this just takes my breath away and I’m just overwhelmed with emotion that you would create such a thing of beauty to go with my poem. I’m literally in tears.This is so incredibly beautiful and so perfect – it’s as if you were in my heart! You are certainly in mine!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart xoxox Gloomy??? hmmm.

  • :-) Thank you so much Lianne. Fallow Heart is one of my favourite ever poems and I just had to illustrate it. I am so glad I captured your feelings – seems we felt the same about it. How lovely is that? xo
