For the Love of Craftsmanship
We all have passions and creativity and magic happens when we put all our skills into our work. There is so much beauty around us. I love discovering craft and design around me and when travelling. This is my diary.
My fascination with craftsmanship has been like a red thread throughout, linking together my hobbies and pursuits and led me to choose art history as a career. Wherever I go I am always on the watch for the work of creatives, in cultural quarters or back alleys, in market stalls or workshops, on travels or in the homes of my friends. When in a new place I love to aimlessly wander around throught the streets and see what kind of shops I can find. In 2016 and 2017 I stayed in Italy for some months and spent days exploring the quarters and found some truly stunning artisans and businesses. Now, I live in the UK and continue my discoveries. This is my notebook.
