On becoming a painter

On becoming a painter

I started painting earlier this year, as a way of expressing a creative freedom that I don't always find when doing graphic design work for clients. Yes, I'm a freelance graphic designer and that's what takes up most of my time during the week. I work from home, which is fun but comes with its challenges - such as trying to put food on the table for 3 kids + 1 due in 2 weeks!! What have we gotten ourselves in for! 

Anyway, I love painting and hope to do it more than just part-time one day. At the moment, I paint in acrylics because it is more family-friendly and I can paint inside the house! My paintings (so far) are inspired by the natural landscape, they are bright and mostly come from my imagination.
