I had an extra Instagram account that I had grand plans for, a daily painting challenge of my dog Thomasina, I was sort of looking forward to it and then I wasn’t as I realised I don’t enjoy a ‘forced’ daily practice (especially if I’ve set it myself!) and whilst I was procrastinating about what to do with the extra IG account, COVID-19 happened.

As with a lot of things like this, several other things started to happen as well, the lease on my studio was coming to an end, Mr. Dean’s latest work contract finished and we started thinking about him not going back…

We’d always talked about getting a motorhome and travelling the UK and Europe, if the pandemic was telling us anything it was not to hang around and ‘wait’ for our dreams to happen so to cut months of planning, budgeting, finding storage for my studio contents and lots of other practicalities short, we’ve done it!

As of July 2020 we are the proud owners of a 2013 Hymer Starline S B690, as of New Years Day 2020 I’d never even heard of the word Hymer!

The IG account has been renamed @hymerdog and you are more than welcome to come and follow us on our adventures, I’m still a full-time artist, now I’m working out of a motorhome, Mr. Dean and I have not stopped smiling since we picked her up!
