I started painting small sunny pictures and worked up to bigger pieces when I was stronger. When I was sure I was feeling better I took a small stall at the Brancepeth Castle Summer craft fair and have just had a go at a "Test run" workshop with some familiar faces. It has taken real strength to update my website though - I may need to return to the sofa this afternoon!
I'm planning to take it easy this year but am starting back again with workshops in September 2018 and I'm very excited about the new workshops with Ushaw College in Durham.
Thanks to everyone who has been sending me messages whilst I have been ill - looking forward to seeing you all again soon. I'll try not to sleep through Autumn!...
