about my blog

I’ve been blogging for over four years on the creative life here at Head to Head, Heart to Heart


In line with my being a writer as well as a visual artist, I blog about the creative life, the ebb and the flow, how to nurture and sustain it, using my passionate interests in psychology, philosophy, and the natural world but with a real world application, sharing my own observations, thoughts, and snippets from my life. This is also a cathartic process for me which I love, and I’m honoured by followers taking the time to read my posts. I never would have imagined I’d take to blogging as much as I have, so it has been a revelation. So topics include all kinds of things about writing, art and the creative life, matters of the head and matters of the heart.

Here are some posts linked specifically to art and the creative life…
