You Don’t Know Me?

Hi guys…….so in case you’re new to my blog, here is a few bits about me. How do I spend my time? Well I have 4 kids and I always find myself running around either picking up one of them or dropping one of them somewhere. I also run a Leadership Development Business with my husband so most of my day is spent coaching Executives. Then at the end of the day I go walking with a friend for exercise or I will go home and paint. I also do the gym in the morning with the huzzy……yeh gotta do what yuh gotta do to stay healthy. I have to admit though that I’m going to take a break from exercising and try dealing with the weight via what I eat. Let’s see if changing the diet will change the weight.

I paint whenever I get any free time which is normally in the evenings or on weekends. I also book and do a few upmarkets on the weekends. My art is my second business so I spend a lot of free time trying to become more visible to my customers. I also plan my own Personal Exhibition at least once every 2 years or I join group exhibitions as well. I’ve done about 2 group exhibitions the year before so far and I had my own small exhibition in May last year. I haven’t done any this year but I am doing a few markets

When we start approaching the Carnival season which is around March, then I spend time attending company parties and my husband and I play Jouvert. On Carnival Monday and Tuesday we tend to relax.

Christmas is a favourite tine for me. Although my kids are big I still love putting out gifts under the tree for everyone and I love when they open them after breakfast and sit around laughing and teasing each other. Best time ever. 

This is the upmarket venue……..NAPA

A view of my table at the most recent upmarket I attended. Actually some of those pieces were sold and I had to go create some new pieces, like the one below.

My 4 kids. Their ages go from 27 to 23.

A piece completed for an upcoming market in a few weeks.

Some other details …I love colour, but my favourite colour this year is teal. Last year it was coral and pink. I love to dance, I love music and I really enjoy good Indian or Indonesian food. As I get older I enjoy my home more than anything. I spend most of my time either painting, watching netflix, going to Church on Sundays and either going to the movies or surfing on my laptop…youtube or pinterest. Love to surf. My poor husband kinda gets lonely because I’m always on my laptop but…i’m kidding we spend a lot of time together. Guess that’s why we’ve been married 29years this year.

I enjoyed sharing with you all and I hope you go check out my art at or go check out my Etsy shop Teaprint. where I sell Printable Planners that can assist you in your business with your team . Check you later…

Hi, I'm a mother of four, one boy and three girls ranging in ages from 26yrs to 22yrs. I own my own business that I run with my husband and we have no pets. We've had a variety of pets from dogs, cats fish etc, but things go wrong when we have pets so we decided that we are not pet people. I'm a creative person and I love to learn and share what I learn. Watercolour painting is my great love. I dream of having my art appreciated and hung on the walls of homes, offices, churches, anywhere that people can view them and start up a conversation about them. So that's a little about me, come peruse more of my site and ENJOY!!!
