I'm a very recent and new mummy, I have been blessed with a beautiful little boy who means the world to me. It was when I was pregnant that I really began drawing and came up with so many wonderful ideas in illustration.

So I had my little boy, Xander, and it was truly a miracle. Suffering with PND and cervical scarring wasn't easy. In fact due to medical complications I'm being screened again for cervical cancer after my loop bio in July.
Being a parent has made me more aware of building a secure future for my son. However, in reality being a parent and trying to juggle ALL the bills is a very difficult task in this day and age. I was forced to put Obsidian photography on hold due to that and had some really hard times with housing in 2015/2016. After staying with Scott's parents when I was pregnant we were lucky enough to find our current home just 2 weeks before I gave birth

I would like to start my own business and turn a new leaf. I am doing a workshop with Princes trust at the end of November 2016. These initial funds will help me kick start the Art Business I have always wanted with some materials. I want to create the art work that I imagined and truly embrace what I can do. Any help whatsoever would be appreciated.
