2. Each time I see the pastel stripes and sprayed yellow ends on my book, it really does make me smile!blue-yellow-stripes
3. I felt inspired by this graphic stripe pattern I spotted in a car park.saatchi-gallery
4. A return trip to the Saatchi Gallery proved to be inspiring thanks to this work by Alexander Kosolapov. It was interesting to see the variations in a pop art take on advertising and consumerism that engulfed America and the UK in the 1950s, to that of Russian artists whose lives had been formed in communist regimes. A fascinating exhibition!london-in-winter

8. An afternoon at the Saatchi Gallery introduced me to the work of artist Gary Hume – his ‘Four Doors I’ painting was one of my favourites. Further reading led me to learn about his love of colour in paintings, so it’s no surprise I felt drawn to his work.10-things-9

10. I love those perfectly timed moments when you step out of the Tube and the sun is setting directly down the street in front of you. Golden hour perfection.
