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. :-)

    I just love the way you put these images together, so skilfully and seamlessly. You have such a great way with the textures and I love the dark tones you use, while managing to keep the work from being too dark. Brilliant!!

  • Thank you so much Pete. I love blending them all together and will do a tutoriral on some of the techniques I use soon. :-) xo
