As much as we often have a favourite craft or creative project that we always go back to, us creative types tend to be multi-passionate, curious individuals. I’ve tried lots of different crafts over the years but painting seems to be my happy place.

But that’s not to say I never do anything different, and I love playing around with a new craft. Just last night I made a hanging planter for a trailing plant that had been living on the windowsill.
