Mulberry Muse 10th Birthday!!!

Ten years ago this month my little online business Mulberry Muse was born.

It has been an amazing journey with so many new skills learned, many struggles

and new and exhilarating opportunities made possible.

It has been an amazing outlet for my creativity as I live with a disabling chronic illness, ME.

These days however I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the ever changing internet, the demands of technology and social media.

All I want to do is create !

I pour my heart into making artwork for my Mulberry Muse shops and I really hope I can continue to bring my ideas to life and bring joy to my wonderful customers and supporters.

Thank you for sharing my passion and for supporting small business, it means a lot to me:)

A time to reflect

A time for decisions, reflections and fresh beginnings as I enter a new decade in my life

A favourite corner in my new attic, loft studio with its vintage typewriter,

dolls house, vintage French mirror, chair, books and eclectic finds.

This is my special place…

It’s time for a change

Hello and thank you for visiting Mulberry Muse.

I have been thinking a lot about my business and how to grow and adapt

despite the restrictions made by having ME/CFS and all of the health issues involved.

So many times I have been asked about digital downloads and I constantly wrestle

with the fear of letting my images into the hands of the unknown.

Too often they have been taken without my permission and it is heartbreaking knowing

how much effort went into their creation to be taken and used by others to make profit.

This year I think is time for a change of heart and I will allow some of my work to be sold digitally.

 I hope to start with something special for Valentine’s day!

More about that another day, have a happy safe one wherever you are  in this world

Indulge yourself Marie Antoinette style!

Marie Antoinette loved to bathe in her beautiful Versailles bathroom with luxurious

long soaks in a fragrant herbal bath.

It is also said that she ate breakfast while bathing, fully dressed for modesty in her chemise!

This is my original artwork, a little amusement, a fantasy,

with Marie Antoinette bathing in a profusion of scented flowers, sharing le petit-déjeuner,

rose raspberry cream macarons of course, with her charming swan.

The Print is available from Mulberrys little Muse
