I am an artist and illustrator, born in Cornwall, now living in Orkney, Scotland, where I paint nature in detail.

I work in watercolour, specialising in fine art miniature paintings and illustration work for commercial clients, as well as the occasional private commission as time allows.

I also sell prints, cards, books, and mugs, alongside the original paintings.

IN MY OPINION!

“A cup of tea, a fancy cake and a good old natter are just the job for our knitting group, they might even get some knitting done!”

After reading, my next greatest passion is woolcraft, whether it be knitting or crocheting, so I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to purchase this jigsaw (my third passion!), when it was donated into the charity shop.

There is always an inherent risk when purchasing a second hand jigsaw, that there may be the odd missing piece or two and whilst this would be very frustrating and more than a little annoying, so far I have been extremely lucky. Although to be fair, I always tend to judge whether the jigsaw has been well loved and taken care of by its previous puzzler family!

The puzzle piece selection is varied, with some traditional shaped interlocking pieces, interspersed with several random shaped interlocking pieces and made all the more difficult and intricate, by the many pieces which have no interlocking at all and simply slide into place, being held intact by their neighbouring pieces and shapes

Beware! Some internal pieces also have straight edges, just to confuse you even more, which means that it is almost impossible to complete the entire outside edge of the jigsaw, in the traditional way.

The overall finished effect of the jigsaw, is a vibrant and colour rich scene, with the added interest of several scaled characters, all intimately detailed and full of personality, almost as though I was looking through the shop window at the gathering inside.

This item was purchased by me from the charity shop where I volunteer, supporting my local hospice.

Whilst I personally do not agree with ‘rating’ a purchase, as the overall experience is all a matter of personal taste, which varies from person to person, some review sites do demand a rating value, so when this review is posted to such a site, it will attract a 5 out of 5.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
