As artists, our creativity and inspiration stem from an interplay of our experiences, our personalities and our individual perception of the world. We are surrounded by people so different from ourselves who can open our eyes and inspire us to create something unique.
As creatives in two very different fields, this is a place for things we find and do that inspire us, a place to invite and connect with other artists from any creative walk of life. We hope you are entertained, excited and inspired by something you find here.

Helen is a writer and broadcaster who is drawn to the life aquatic. She loves sewing dresses, growing veg, and those surprising things you only find by looking carefully. Her artwork combines intricacies of the natural world with a delight in scene-setting and storytelling.
