reCOLLETTEtions

   ART Advice, Upcycle, Revamp, Recreate, lets just get creating!!

        reCOLLettetions is a blog about anything art related but also making things, recycling, up-cycling, recreating, whatever you want to call it. There is advice on how do just about anything with art, including how to deal with galleries, creating bread & butter lines, blank canvas syndrome and much much more.

I am a practising artist with many years of experience both in a practical hands on and teaching aspect, having worked with many artists helping them learn business skills from an artists perspective.
