Ludlow 7 Exhibition

So How Did I Get Here?

One day I was looking through the local paper and I noticed a small article about a competition looking for local photographers and to enter.  They were looking for people who do not normally exhibit, who were local to Ludlow, for someone who had been taking photos for a while.  In fact they were looking for 7 people.  The idea being that there were 7 walls in the gallery and so each exhibitor would have a wall.  The selection process was that the 7 would be picked by a panel and randomly too.  So, my thought was OK, would I be silly in entering into this competition I better give them a call to check.  That is what I did, I gave the gallery a call and said you know I have never (the truth and honest way is the best) done anything like this, I don’t even know if my photos are worth a consideration, as I normally use my camera on my Sony xperion 3 phone as it is handy.

The reply I got was why not come to the gallery have a look around and I can chat to you about it.  There really isn’t all that much time left to enter though.  That is what I did.  In going to the gallery, and finding wonderful pictures, my thoughts were that I was kidding myself.  And yet there a part of me saying “yes, but you never know, if you don’t give it a try you just wont know, and if they say no is it going to kill me am I going to die?  NO.”  I showed Peter (gallery owner) a couple of images from my phone and he was not discouraging at all, in fact he was saying how I get hold of a form fill it in with one image and then send in another e-mail with a few more images.  I was not being turned away – he wanted me to enter, really could I be in with a chance?

So I went home filled in the form submitted about 6 photographs and then waited.  And waited, for the all important email telling me if I was in or not.  But I was in which was great news, and so daunting at the same time.  I now had to chose between 4 to 6 images these had to be framed and given the dimensions of the images too and then think how much do I want to sell them for.  What I had not accounted for being a total armature in this was the resolution of the image is not great.  This means that I could not do great big prints I could only go up to an A4 size anything bigger looked wrong.  Small was great but not when you had to take into account the wall space you had as well.

I went to the local printers and got the printing done as well as the framing although not much time was left for the framing.  It was done and now was the fact that I had to hang them.  None of the frames are the same size so I decided on an abstract way of hanging the prints.  Totally different to everyone else but that is OK as it reflected more about me and who I am.  The exhibition started on the 11th February 2017 and will run till the 11th March 2017, they are there for you to have a look at, please do.  I am overwhelmed that I got through but proud that I had a go and how far it got me.  

I say this to all out there, if you don’t have a go how do you know if you can’t do something or how far you will go?  Have a go, for me I knew the worst they could say was “no thank you not out kind of thing, thank you”.  Is that going to kill me – NO.  So why not have a go!

Here is what my set of photos looked like on the day

Reflections – updated 2016

Please note that Reflections in Ludlow has now closed.  I am still available for treatments in Aromatherapy and Reflexology, and if you would like any further information please contact me or drop me a note using the form at the bottom of the page.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Some of you may have met me at Reflections, Ludlow on a Friday.  I was there from October 2014 through to February 2015. If you would like to know more about Reflexology and Tuning Forks please contact me.

I have been there since the start of October after the Ludlow Food festival in September when I held Reflexology taster sessions, which were well received. I am pleased to have found a place in Ludlow town centre where I could hire a room and which I feel the energies are just right. Reflections is hair dressers, but they have now branched out to incorporate holistic practices, so there are meditation evenings, Reiki, crystal healing taking place though out the week, which is great as it is a place where you can purchase them too. This is a place which has it’s own style and energies which is great.

To add to this I have also been on a workshop about tuning forks (not the piano ones), these are for sound therapy. Well I was so taken with the Ohm forks that I have now got some, and I will be incorporating them into my treatments. I have to say that I am excited about using them and getting feedback about them as well which would be great.

Overall I have had some great feedback about the treatments my clients have received such as “I was surprised that I got to smell the oils before hand” J of Ludlow, and “really, really lovely” JB of Ludlow.

About Me

100_3523
I have been working as a Spiritual Medium for over 12 years, working in churches, and centres as well as on a one to one basis. I have also graduated from Derby University as a Complementary Therapist working with Aromatherapy and Reflexology. These aspects of my life roll over to the everyday, using the oils to enhance each day and I use the Reflexology to note the changes in my body. The mediumship I use to gain a better understanding of myself and of those around me. As we always on the search of why are we here and for what purpose.

From this website you will be able to see that I enjoy working with my mediumship which is always expanding, why not look at the label of Mediumship and Psychic Art.  Psychic Art is something that I enjoy doing very much and one that I feel I am able to give something physical back to the ones who have a reading.  I have and do the following; church events (such as services, suppers and speicals), one to one readings either face to face or through Skype, events, one to one psychic art readings, and party bookings.  If you would like to find out more or would like to ask me any questions why not drop me a line using the form below or call me.

As for the complementary therapies that I carry out, I too enjoy them working with clients and seeing them develop and see the empowerment that they can attain.  If you have not come across either Aromatherapy or Reflexology theny why not try a taster session.  For more information please contact me and I will be happy to answer any queries.
