I discovered decorated cookies at the end of 2009 after my sister returned from a day's class with Peggy Porschen in London. It has become my main creative outlet and a form of night-time meditation for me, after days filled with looking after four kids, home, garden, veg patch and animals. It perfectly combines my interests in art, in skilled handiwork and baking. It's also an activity my kids love doing with me, and we prepare iced cookies as gifts for all possible occasions.
I feel like I still have a lot to learn, but it's the trying that counts. Seeing other people's work is a constant source of inspiration and provides the impetus I need to keep improving.
