My daily life is looking after my son, he is now 9 months old.


9:30 AM

For breakfast, I had noodles and salted duck egg.

11:30 AM

Alex has a nap, this is my reading time.


2:30 -5:30 PM

I love to have a walk along the seafront, winning some soft toys on the pier, shopping around the Lanes and meeting my friends at restaurants for dinner. Now I always try to get back home by 8:00 PM because of the little one.


8:30 PM

I get to work after Alex goes to sleep. This is the only time I can do my painting, in the night, it is very peaceful. I am painting at home at the moment, taking commissions and preparing work for my dealer to take to the shows.
