I love this photograph of my cat, which is why I decided to include it in the initial range of greetings cards. I was adjusting and testing some settings on the camera, and she wanted to get in on the action. I did manage to narrowly avoid having her nose print on the lens! But … Continue reading Reflection in a Cat’s eye
It’s almost the end of term, the end of the first year of this 2 year diploma in digital media. We’ve done some bits of image manipulation, a lot of website building – go on, take a look around, you’re browsing the results – and a lot of behind the scenes web work too. There … Continue reading Assignment time.
For years I’d been aware of the Hay Festival, and always thought I’d like to go. You know, one day, just to say I’d been. Oh, yes, I went to Hay, once… But I lived too far away, and the distance, the expense, and 2 young children… It just didn’t happen. Then we moved to … Continue reading Hay Festival 2017 – Twice.

This past week has seen a new idea begin to take shape. It all started last Christmas, when I was given a camera, my first DSLR – Thanks Dad! The beauty of digital is that you can take literally thousands of pictures, and then delete them all when they’re completely rubbish. But now and then, … Continue reading Greeting cards
My Mum was diagnosed with emphysema about 12 years ago, and she was determined she would not let it affect her or slow her down. Of course, it did eventually, conditions like that do in the end.

After completing a study module on website creation, and achieving a distinction, I am now awaiting the mark for the latest project – the podcast and video created before Easter. I’m reasonably happy with both end results, although there is plenty of room to improve if I want to go and make more of them. … Continue reading Shop in progress
I am honoured, and so proud, to have been asked to once again act as a judge for the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize. I love this – the people, the concept, the process, the whole thing. They plant trees, lots of trees, and they are creating a forest with every word submitted. Seventy-one acres so … Continue reading Magic Oxygen – Breathing Life into words
