do what you love: interview

May 27, 2011  in news

dowhatyouloveI do consider myself very lucky. Since art college I have always done what I love – be creative – and have been fortunate to make a career from it. It’s not always easy and is often hard work, but being creative is very rewarding on a personal level.

Beth Nicholls came along to the Decorate book launch at Liberty last month. Beth runs an e-course and an art and creative enterprise retreat in, guess what, how to do what you love for life. She asked if she could interview me and I said yes.

Beth asked me about professional styling, how I started and about being creative. You can read the full interview with me over on Do What You Love For Life – click here

    How fun! I’m going to head on over and read all about it! I think its so amazing when people get to follow their passion. I am very lucky to now be pursuing my love– painting. I worked for a few years as a journalist and every time I’d interview someone who was following their passion, their simplest word of advice was always: “just start. DO it.” So many times we dont do what we love because we’re afraid its not the right time to start, or we dont think we deserve to try to pursue it. I am so thankful I’ve had the opportunity to follow my dreams, and I want my daughter to do the same. When I was growing up I was told that it was silly to go to art school, so I got a staid degree that I don’t even use 😉 in the end, you just have to be brave 🙂

    I definitely am doing what I love.
    I am a freelance artist. I have an online shop, I work as an artist in residence in schools, and since September of last year I have returned to life drawing (after twenty years) and have started exhibiting my work.
    The last bit is the bit I am so pleased about – it has taken me ages to have the courage to get out there, and stop listening to any negative inner voices.
    My goal is to have a solo show.

    Love your book 🙂
