We’ve had the best Summer settling into our new home and town by the sea in Cornwall. We’ve spent every spare moment either on, in or watching the ocean and I am so grateful for the time I’ve been able to share with my family and friends at the beach this Summer. I arrived back at work today like a new person, with a sketchbook brimming with fresh ideas, feeling motivated and inspired by our time spent together by the ocean.
This isn't a blog post to talk about why living coastally has changed our lives, but there’s no denying that it has had a massive impact on all three of us. It’s a post about what do you do when you have fulfilled your dream. What when you have a great whacking hole where your ambition and drive used to flourish are you supposed to do?
A recent trip to the St Ives Barbara Hepworth museum and gardens of sculpture. I took so many amazing photo's I wanted to share them in a blog post. I found it such an inspirational place and hope you can get a sense of that. I feel so lucky to have such a place on our doorstep. It is hard to explain but visiting is almost like stepping back in time, whilst being thrust forward. The modern, commanding sculptures are beautifully dramatic, but there is still a sense of the artist still being here. There are her tools in the workshop and plants in the greenhouse, there's even a cat asleep on the window ledge.
