About

about usLet me introduce myself, my name is Nic and I love to spend my free time drawing, painting, sewing, knitting, in fact trying anything that lets me experiment and explore my creativity.

My love of all things arty started when I was a child, my dad was a printer so there was always lots of paper in the house and things took off from there.  I stopped drawing when I went to university and didn’t feel I had time when my career took over but rediscovered my love of all things creative about 5 years ago and I haven’t looked back.

Since then I’ve taken life drawing classes and started painting again and then a couple of years ago I took an evening class in pottery.  This re-sparked my passion for  trying new things.

My husband and I set Rag Tag Magpie up to share ideas and inspiration with like minded souls.  Our mission is to get people to do something that makes them happy.

THIS BLOG IS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT SOME INSPIRATION AND TO BE PART OF A COMMUNITY OF CREATIVES – AFTER ALL A CREATIVE MESS IS BETTER THAN IDLE TIDINESS!
