Okay. I admit it. I am a fine artist. One of my projects is my blog on tumblr, please follow me by copying and pasting the link: http://howbenefitgalworks.tumblr.com Being creative, innovative, informative, aesthetic, approachable and fun. Design follows function, art defines and innovates. Yes, I have had a rather full and fluid career in creativity, with only until graduation from University of Suffolk realising my direction. "If you get dealt lemons, make lemonade" - Joan Collins. "Enthusiasm is magic, it spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment" - Norman Vincent Peale. Proudly, I am well known locally in the creative circles for my high standard of presentation skills, I was voted by ALL the lecturers at University of Suffolk to write a speech and deliver a Thank You speech on behalf of the Graduates. Amongst my creative skills and administration skills, I have great writing skills, image-making, social media and my collection of historically relevant local arts information. Currently amongst many projects I am working on I am collating information and subjects relevant to the Arts Building of University of Suffolk to develop into an art book. As an Auntie I am proud to be engaged completely in the role with my niece Gracie. In my studies and onwards I have read about the mirror stage by Lacan, being able to witness the developments of my niece in this crucial development is particularly interesting. I regularly take her to art galleries and engage with her in painting, playing and learning through practice. I am confident with working with children I am a Governor, a Girl Guide Leader (in training) and I give talks to schools through Inspiring The Future. I confess, yes, I have been on benefits and being able to make the progress I have, I could not have achieved had I not received such vital support.Locked Pro Plan feature
