Stargazing In Dwejra, Gozo

Dwejra is a small bay on the tiny island of Gozo (Malta’s smaller sister island) made famous by its now extinct Azure Window, made even more famous by it’s role in the first season of Game of Thrones. I’d visited this Mediterranean landmark a number of times, hopping on the ferry and keeping an eye... Continue Reading →

Top 5 Spotify Playlists For Painting

Music, like art, is a universal language. We all use music to get us through those hard times, to trigger childhood memories, and what are those milestones in our lives without the songs we choose to celebrate them? Which is why I think it’s just as important to have the right music to accompany your... Continue Reading →

A Splash of Colour

June in Malta, and with temperatures suddenly hitting 34 degrees overnight, it can be quite exhausting and hard to appreciate the colours around you. If you like the shimmering turquoise of the Mediterranean Sea, then you can do no better! I love seeing the balls of sunlight dance and break up the waves into thousands... Continue Reading →

Affordable flights, availability of accommodation, working hours and other commitments can all us from being able to travel where and when we want. I’ve typically travelled during the summer...

Autumn Is Good For The Artist

Autumn is definitely my favourite season. There's so much potential in the colours, and everything's so fleeting. There's that beautiful moment of calm before Winter sets in.

The Universal Language Of Flowers

To me, flowers have always been the underling to wildlife. Whilst I love all aspects of nature, it's the animate, complex animal kingdom that usually holds my attention. That, and mountains. I guess I never really had much more than a passing interest for flowers. Sure, they're pretty and they smell great, but they don't... Continue Reading →
