Mothering Sunday and Women's History Month
Since 1987 March has been a month dedicated to celebrating the (often overlooked) contributions of women to history, society, and culture. Its beginning can be traced as far back as 1909 to the first Women’s History Day in New York, when it commemorated the anniversary of the thousands of women who marched in the garment workers’ strikes against low pay, long work hours, and the lack of voting rights.
For the Love of Dog...
The antics of our canine companions, and the outpouring of love we have for them is a joyous thing to behold, as are the many depictions of our puppy pals the art world has to offer. From Pablo Picasso’s delightful depictions of Lump, a frolicsome Daschund with whom he had a wonderfully fond friendship, to more contemporary compositions, our pampered pooches prove just as popular on canvas as they are in our homes.

Colour Favourites for the Year Ahead
With the globe’s leading brands each recently announcing their ‘color of the year’ for 2023, its looking as though we are going to be seeing a shift away from 2022’s calming green and lilac themes and a move towards a selection of warmer and more invigorating hues. The popularity of the ‘maximalism’ decor trend could have something to do with this. It is set to continue into 2023, and its focus on bold patterns and highly saturated colours seems to have influenced the colour choices for this year ahead: taking a walk on the more wild and vivid side.

Self-expression is an important part of our lives, helping us to understand and access our unique desires and creativity, leading to a more authentic and fulfilling existence.

Awesome Animal Art for World Animal Month
Each year October is observed as World Animal Month. The holiday originated in Italy in 1931 and was started by a group of ecologists at a congress of the world’s animal protection organisations who wanted to raise awareness of animals, their importance, and their needs.
Can Art Promote Relaxation?
With its warmer weather, trees vibrant with leaves, and a bit of time off from theworking week, the summer season has proved to be a great time to practice a bit of self-care. If you’ve relished the opportunity to indulge in a little ‘me time’, why not continue your practice into the cooler months, when we often need it the most.So, what can we do to promote a little tranquillity in our lives, and can ‘art’ help to induce a sense of relaxation? There is certainly some testimony to suggest so.

Looking After Our Green Spaces and Britain's Urban Wildlife
You don't have to live in rural areas to find a wealth of wild animals in the UK. In Britain's towns and cities, it is possible to spot birds of prey, urban foxes, bumblebees, and tufted ducks to name just a few. The Wildlife Trust states, “The green spaces of our towns and gardens bring nature into our daily lives, brightening our mornings with birdsong and the busy buzzing of bees”.
Colour Choices in Our Homes
We spend a lot of time carefully perusing paint swatches and flicking through fabric samples to find the colours that are 'just right' for our homes, even finding ourselves revisiting them and redecorating only a few years later.Not only do we make colour choices to reflect and help communicate the way in which we are currently feeling but we might also choose specific colours to influence how we aspire to feel.
