Photo Blog: Wildlife of Chile and Patagonia

It's World Wildlife Day, a day that fills me with joy and where I dig out all my favourite Attenborough documentaries. The natural world is extraordinary seen through the lens of a film camera, but it's even more extraordinary when you can witness it first hand. Having been to plenty of zoos and wildlife parks...

Poems Inspired By Nature

Today I felt like sharing a different source of inspiration whilst also connection with my favourite muse: nature of course! Instead of browsing through my travel photos or watching Attenborough yet again, I decided to dig out some old books and some favourite poets. Poets have an extraordinary way of connecting with nature that its... 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.

"Cosmic Blooms" is of course inspired by the fragile beauty of the Japanese... Continue Reading →

A Million Sunrises

It’s not always easy to find time to create. Whether it’s finding time in your head, or time on paper, it’s that often-elusive, never-enough-of-it outlook that holds us back from creating, more than the limited time itself. Taking time out to get creative is important, and it doesn’t necessarily mean painting either. Perhaps it’s planning... Continue Reading →

Five Inspiring Autumn Destinations

We rarely get to travel as much as we’d like, and even rarer still is being at our own liberty to decide on when to travel. 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...
