Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

Beatriz Milhazes..images from the article "Tropical fusion".



I read about this extraordinary Brazilian painter last year in the New York Times... the colour is so alive! I loved work she was doing with stained glass...or coloured glass...not shown here.

Sophie,

I've been really fascinated lately with the artists' workspaces. I've even done a couple of posts about Where Women Create. If you have pics of your workspace, I would love to feature it in a post or perhaps you can do a post and I'll link to it. E-mail me is you have pics available jmwint@hotmail.com

Love to do that for you!
Isn't it a wonderful thing to get behind the work and the end product...to see where things come from and what inspires the creativity.
Its on my to do list...just took photos this week...need to download!
thanks for the interest..will keep watching to see what is happening over/up there!
Ciao!
