I have dabbled in art my entire life.  My professional career began painting for Rosie Fisher at Dragons of Walton Street.  I then painted canvases, drew with pastels and collected works by other artists.  I have already run out of wall space!

After setting up a successful interior design company and working privately for a princess, I developed an interest in neuroscience. In fact, I found it so fascinating that I decided to train as a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, working in Harley Street, London. It became clear to me in my work that art is a great healer. People suffering anxiety, depression, dementia etc. relax and feel better, calmer and happier when using their hands to create.

With this in mind, and given our current circumstances of lockdown and loneliness, I saw a need for simple projects that everyone could do at home to relax and create serotonin in their brains with the added bonus of something lovely to keep or share.  The idea of a painting kit evolved as a fantastic way to reach out to our loved ones, either as a simple way to create our own artworks to send as gifts or to give the kit as a gift for them to create their own art. And then the possibilities of how to use the kit began to flood in.

I wish I had thought of it while my parents were still alive as I would treasure their paintings. Hopefully, future generations will enjoy their families’ creations for years to come.
