Some of you know that as a child I was raised by my mother Maggie at 21 Portland Road SE25 which is located directly across from Elizabeth James Gallery.
If you asked mum she would modestly say she wasn’t very artistic or creative…..I disagree.
I grew up watching my mother create, sew, decorate, cook, knit….that is where I get it from!!
Money was tight and on certain special occasions such as Christmas & Easter mum would (instead of a card) sit up late the night before and paint or draw us a fitting scene.
Isn't it funny how you grow up and evolve as a person you realise the people around you showed you, influenced you and nurtured your creativity without even realising it. Thanks Mumzy x
So this year we have chosen some of our favorite to make into Christmas cards which I am happy to say are now available in the gallery.
I share with you a little piece of my childhood and fond memories with mum.
