Designer, illustrator and maker of stuff. I live on a hill in the Stroud valleys with my Son and Partner. Life has turned into a Circus since giving birth a year ago, a daily performance of mess making and raspberry blowing. I'm slowly learning to juggle the many new expectations as a mother and home maker (domestic goddess I am not!). It dawned on me the other day that I keep expecting to somehow organise the mess and suddenly have some time to create and unearth the me that came before the chaos but I now realise this elusive 'time' may not be forthcoming. So we're going to embrace the mess and create around it, in it, next to it, after it and before it and see where we end up.
