My Happy 50th

(Written 1 year later!) I had an absolutely glorious 50th. With all the social media outlets, I neglected writing a post about my special occasion on my own website. With this freshen up of the website, it is an optimum excuse to create the post now. This event is a significant one – not just because I marked my 50 years of [...]

Hello, welcome back! My art site is back and firstly I must apologise to those of you who have had some strange feeds land in your inbox during testing time.
