A big part of who I am is an artist. Since having children I have had to completely re-assess how I let my creativity out, as having the space and time to do my own thing in my own time is no longer an option! My bigger boy and I have discovered a love of big messy painting and together we create these big beautiful colourful paper backgrounds which I can’t bear to throw out, and so have kept rolled up, gathering dust. One evening I felt inspired and dug out a sharpie marker from Messy Dad’s man-bag and began to draw…. and the result was the “rocking my baby” artwork!
Since then I’ve completely a further five pieces, and branched out into decorating crockery and hand-printed and embellished cards, all in the very distinctive messy mama style. I’ve had the most amazing feedback regarding my paintings and artwork over the last few months, and am slowly breaking into the craft fair scene as well as having my own little Etsy shop.
