Welcome to the Magic Art Cubby... Pot-plants, cuttings and photographs go in, and a fantasy world of curious creatures and unexpected adventures comes out!
There is a flower shaped mirror on the left side of the art cubby door. It is there to reflect upon the amazing diversity of nature outside; the creation of a mind far greater than ours who can pull out a perfect idea from nothing.
But for us, even a weed can look good when you view it closely enough… and so with more than enough inspiration at hand, let the magic begin!
For starters let me emphasise that I am an artist not a paving expert or concrete trades-person! This could very well be a blog on what not to do… if I was to tackle this project again I would do a few things differently…
Who would like a ‘room of requirement’ as in Harry Potter, or for their house to be ‘bigger on the inside’ like the TARDIS?

For the past four years I have worked as a casual sales assistant in a fabric store. When I got this job I was in my late 40’s with no recent experience in retail but I did have skills in dressmaking and costuming and a degree in Fashion and Textile design.
For a long time I’ve had a fascination for old items that are imaginatively ‘re-purposed’ for new uses; especially in regards to garden decor. After all, just about anything looks better when combined with greenery!
When my father passed away last year he left us with thousands of books. Most of them were sold and given away but I kept some of the old Penguin and Pelican covers and used them to wallpaper the toilet room walls.
