About

I am a 30 year old woman living in South Yorkshire, England. For four and a half years, I was a full-time carer for my mum who is now unfortunately in the later stages of early onset Alzheimer’s disease dementia; she now resides permanently in residential care..

I thought that a blogging platform would be the best way to share with others online my creative art pursuits.

I am an aspiring artist, hoping to develop my art from amateur and get it back to the level it was at when I completed my A-level Fine Arts (a very long time ago it seems lol). I upload progression photos on my blog of how I went about creating various pieces of art, a beginning to end process. My ambition is to build up a substantial portfolio of work, at a high professional standard, to then go on and sell the prints. I also dream of setting up my own furniture upcycling business, specialising in decoupage.

As well as showcasing my art, I also delight in the opportunity to publish personal travel / theatre blog posts. I have been all over the country with my mum seeing various touring musical theatre, and in the West End. I enjoy European city breaks, sunny holidays abroad, Christmas market getaways, local fun days out, seaside trips, the lot. So please keep a look out for my travel / theatre posts; I enjoy writing them and I do hope you enjoy reading them just as much 🙂 🙂

I would very much appreciate it, if you would please (if you like what you see, of course) ‘like’ and ‘follow’ my official Facebook page (UnicornPostbox), and follow me on Instagram (unicornpostbox) – so I can try to obtain a larger following and support network… thank you very much, love and peace, Lauren xx
