" Excellent advice" Maggie James

" I went to a very interesting talk by artist duo Annabel Tilley and Rosalind Davis ... What came across was passion, drive and 'can do' attitude. This duo is dynamic and entertaining Rosalind and Annabel seamlessly tore through the alphabet of do's and don'ts a lot of which were good old common sense, but who doesn't need a bucket full of that tipped over their heads now and again? It never ceases to amaze me how I can be thinking of doing something but just never really actually DO it. So I picked up a few salient points....." Felicity Truscott
