Today, I Will Be Wearing Purple Boots...

Posted on


This painting was the first one I had in my mind when I decided to take my love of celebrating ordinary joy as the defining direction in my work. It seemed such a simple statement to make, but because of this, it also seemed to be a good example of what my future work will be about. Finding joy in the little things.

We can all make the choice to find joy in the ordinary and the everyday, and something as simple as wearing purple shoes, a yellow coat or a nice bright scarf can be a really easy but very effective way of doing it. I love wearing colour. Even as a rather introverted character (who certainly hasn't got a figure that deserves attention - due to my love of not only joy but also wine and cake!) most of my wardrobe features bright colours and funky prints and I rarely leave the house without a splash of colour. 

Colour really does brighten up the world around us and can have a massive impact on mood, so I encourage you all to choose that orange dress, pick the lime green tie or even just wear some bright socks to the office. I mean, it's really hard to be grumpy all day when you're wearing shiny purple boots...
