Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...



New Year*New Beginnings*New Directions*Still Me!

Talk about scary steps - but I am taking them.

What on earth am I talking about? 

I am talking about actually believing in myself and taking those steps I wish I had taken years ago ... so here goes!

....erhem, first nervous shuffling of feet then the sound of  chair being pushed back, clears throat and says ...

Hello, I am Kate, I am an artist


Enough procrastination, I have an unfinished hare painting,
stock to build up
webpages to finish building.

But first - kettle on, 
I have a mug of tea to make!

Why don't you have a look here too - http://bit.ly/2iKngAF


  1. Oh Wow! Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous

    Julie xxxxxxx

  2. Wooow, fantastic!! I especially love the cats and the blue tit, great works. Happy 2017!! Nata xxx

  3. You're a brilliant artist. Keep up the good work. Hope the enterprise goes well for you.

  4. Brilliant! You are on the right path .... I'd join you if I could draw or paint! More hares please!

  5. Well done on taking that step- life is short and can be snatched away in a second. It's so important to do what makes your soul sing....it took me 12 years until my son was old enough for me to start Morris dancing and even then I nearly bottled it. I am so glad that I managed to muster the courage to do it in the end!

  6. Stunning! Especially the cats and hare. Blessings

  7. Beautiful work - I hope 2017 is a fabulous year for you.

  8. Those are so beautiful! I especially loved the moon. x

  9. Hello Kate! I will introduce myself, I am Carol, Kate's mother aka Jak and I am very proud of her work. Keep it up. xx

  10. Lovely work! Glad you have your priorities with a cuppa on the horizon!

  11. Hi "Kate" ! You mean, I now don't have to scrub out the name & replace it with Hawthorn? Having met you & your Mum & seen some of your work, I can tell everyone it is "stunning". All the best in your new direction & if I had a pet I'd commission a painting. You are one talented lady. I love the hare & fox, but have you ever painted an owl? Well done, take care & huggles.

  12. MANY CONGRATULATIONS., Oops, didn't mean to have the caps lock on but guess the Universe thought it should be!

    If you say you are an artist then you ARE. And looking at your beautiful painting then there can be no doubt.
    "Create your own reality" ? Very best of luck, xx

  13. Well done Kate, I've never doubted that you're an artist, it's time to own it x

  14. Kate your work is beautiful, be proud and loud about your talents. More foxes please xx

  15. And what an artist! I think that's such a beautiful perfect thing; 'my name is Kate. I am an artist'! I am SOOOOO proud of you and excited and all sort of jiggy and feel privileged to be able to watch you fly! xx

  16. Beautiful! I love all of them. You are an amazing lady!
