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. :-)

    Lovely work, and the hair is real? Gorgeous rendering of something I think a lot of women could relate to.

  • Thank you so much Fuchsia. :-) The hair is real, I just tidied it up a bit in some places as bits get lost during the ‘masking’. :-)
