I've just had a visit in the shop from a lady called who drove all the way down from Northumberland to Radiance see me. She was inspired by my last 'Art of Asking' blogpost and thought she would 'ask' if she could pay me a visit. We sat and drank tea and had an inspiring chat about life and creativity which was very pleasant on this wet and dreary Friday.
Jan Baxandall is in her final year of Textile Surface Design at Newcastle Uni and wondering where to go next with her work. She is pursuing her creative career later in life, after working in education for many years and raising her now grown up children. It's time to 'just do it' she says. This is her being brave and taking some work out into the wide world.
I took a quick snap and I hope she doesn't mind me sharing it. It's lovely work. Needs to be seen don't you think?!
I love it when blogging brings people together. When we can help each other along with nudges of encouragement.
