Artist Trudy Baker said she had to alter her practices after having children, but she loved what she did. ‘To be able to continue making with my restless creative brain and hands I began making cards, which were something small enough to make on the kitchen table while the kids ate their fish fingers,’ she said.

‘I get the kids involved as much as possible and they love creating things in our small studio.

‘The world would be a very dull place without creativity and being involved with a local arts centre allows all members of the community to be involved.’
