My personal website via Strikingly

My life is full. There are so many things I have yet to try, so many mountains real and metaphorical that remain unconquered. When I was looking for a webpage platform, my first priority was that it should be easy to use. 

I have used other platforms in the past, and they have worked fine. But they took several days sitting in front of the computer to learn how to use, and by the time I needed to update them, several more days to relearn everything again. I have tried working with a web designer, but that just became more complicated as I needed to get in touch, explain the desired changes and wait for a reply. It was also expensive!

Strikingly became my platform of choice because it is so simple and straightforward. I am an artist so I need my site to look clean and uncomplicated. It just needs to work, without fuss and without needing a lot of supervision. Strikingly has built a platform that fulfills this need. Their templates look sophisticated and clean, the site is easy to set up, changing images is a breeze and I can do it all myself in a very short period of time. More importantly, the site looks great on the desktop as well as on the mobile.

This summer, I went on holiday and wanted to add a quick page to say there would be some works related to the holiday coming up in the next month or so. I added what I needed in less than 5 minutes on my mobile! The time saved from designing and maintaining a website is time I can use in the studio or on another adventure! Thanks very much to the Strikingly team for creating such a fabulous platform.

Caught a hummingbird on the lawn last week, he was so cold, he had lost the will to fly. Picked him up and held him in my hand until he warned up enough to fly away!

Our old dog, Prince. We all expected him to move on to the next world ages ago but he is still kicking around.

2. Use a red sharpie to colour in the lines. 

Voila!
