Planning A House Without The Pride

  I love houses that become homes. I love how a building can start to symbolise who lives there and represent the life they are trying to live. This is a bit strange seeing as I was unbelievably bored by architecture in Art History classes. I think this is because the walls, the roofs, the…

Mother God: A Childish Caricature

Recently it was Mother’s Day here in the UK and honestly I’m not sure I feel I’ve been a mother long enough to have much to do with it. Inspired by the holiday, however, I came up with a little amusing way of looking at the characteristics of motherhood shown by God. I believe God has…

Back To The Beginning: Trying To Be What I Am

Life can be terrifying. In life we get pushed to and fro and sometimes we’re brave enough to push back. It is often said that a person is made up from their surroundings and that in itself can be difficult as we don’t have control over what our brains circle round and round, repeat to…

2013: A Year to Continue Good Habits

When thinking about what I might like to take up as a new years resolution I found myself struggling. I am still eating much healthier than I ever did before, and have lost a large amount of weight since the summer. This can only really continue on track and there’s no point putting more pressure…

Caledonians & Creating Websites

Today I once again put on my creative hat and joined my husband in some web design and development. As I tend to be the more artistic of the couple I put together images and layout whilst Bear codes and adjusts and actually does the hard bit. Our aim: firstly to create a site that…

Piece of Mind: Mental Wealth Bursts the Bubble

So we got there! After finally finishing my painting (it went right done to the line) and then getting stuck unable to deliver it, I finally got both my large and small paintings into the exhibition. Then it was all a matter of waiting.

Taking a Leap of Faith: EKM Cronin Art

You will now find me on Facebook advertising my skills, and my pieces, for your critique and commissions if you so desire. I will be taking this on as a part-time job alongside my current work as Tayside YoungLives Administrator  and…
