My partner and I adopted Mia, a rescue dog, in February which means we’ve walked more and explored local parks. When taking Mia for a walk, we spend a lot of time standing still waiting for her to satisfy her curiosity in all kinds of wildlife and plants, to stop sniffing and continue walking. With a warm spring in the UK my neighbourhood park has looked lovely – full of daffodils, bluebells and crocuses – and I’ve fortunately had the time to absorb it.

After moving to a new house last year, lots of great life changes and a surreal early peak of Spring sun this weekend, I’m getting a bit of a creative pang to, well, create something visual that’s completely different. That’s different as in ‘I’ve never done this before; let’s give it a go,’ not ‘blimey, this is a ground breaking world first artistic idea.’ I’m also keen to do something creative that’s hands-on and offline. Paper, wood, glue and collage on a scale larger than a computer screen.
