Living with cats and living with COVID 20-21

 At long last creativity and art events are beginning to blossom again. The last 2 years gave me time to try out something new, and think about what is important. I have explored and appreciate my relationship with my environment expressed in terms of living with cats as pets and as free living creatures. This has resulted in a body of work in collage and a set of poems.

My work is shown at Wirral Open Studios Tour, and at 2 Wirral churches trail and pop-up poetry festival as a part of 10 years of Wirral Festival of Firsts
