Since the weekend, I have been intending to share a motherhood type post. My daughter got tonsillitis unexpectedly with a raging 40-degree temperature and my son got concussed in the last play of a rugby match. These two things completely out of the blue have sent me into a mini spiral of worry and stress….

I found this Marilyn Monroe quote and I had to share. I have spent the last couple of months looking at visuals of myself and picking myself apart. My team and I have focussed on the reality of who I am as an artist and tried to bring out the different facets of my personality…

For as long as I can remember I have had problems with my skin – physically and metaphorically speaking. I think I may have mentioned this before but I had really bad eczema head to toe, from about 5 years old to 15. It was unsightly, sore; it used to sting and was uncontrollably itchy….

  “Money makes the world go around”, sang Liza Minnelli famously in Cabaret…and The Beatles sang, “All you need is love”. I don’t think we can argue with either of these points.

When I was younger – I’m thinking of my school and university years here, I used to feel waiting was a sign of weakness. Surely it meant I was indecisive and I didn’t know what I wanted. I have always trusted my instincts but often didn’t take the time to follow them through to the…

When I have very full busy weeks like this one, my brain can go into a bit of a tailspin and I often find it hard to focus on one thing at a time as I have so much to do. I’m not sure if this is a quirk of me, or the same for…
