We all hit watersheds in our lives, and goodness knows, COVID19 has thrown quite a few of them up in the air.


I’ve always enjoyed craft and art, and have dipped in and out of doing them for more years than I like to say.
So, with that in mind, I am going to change the focus of Charley Speakes now. I started CharleySoeakes when I was very frustrated where my life was in connection to work mainly. That has now all changed, and I am not working in a day job anymore. Since last summer we have been ‘resting’ to see what comes up next. I have had time to refocus my thoughts onto visual creativity, and so, although I’m no expert, master or even especially good at most, that is what I find is giving me most peace and pleasure now.
I love quilling, painting, drawing, doodling and calligraphy. So, this is very much a paper-based project.

I think I will change the website’s layout and put all the old blurbs into one place.
That’s all. Just thought I’d say, as if you had been following for rants and now found doodles, you might have been a little confused. 😉
