My name is Cathryn and I’m a blogger, photographer and artist originally from Yorkshire and now living in London.

I’ve been drawing, painting and taking photos for most of my life and this blog is where I share my work.

My posts include drawings, collections of photographs and articles about life and creativity.

The name Concrete Moomin comes simply from my deep love of the Moomin characters and the fact that the building I live in is constructed almost entirely from concrete. Nothing deeper or more complicated than that!

    It’s great to find your blog, from this little ‘about me’ section I think we have many similar interests, as well as both having ME/CFS so I look forward to going through your posts. Recently my partner wrote a blog post about the effects of the government cuts to disabled benefits. I am trying to raise as much awareness as possible so check it out at: http://coffeehousediscussions.wordpress.com/2011/07/29/the-state-is-disabling-the-disabled/ and if you agree with it then please spread the word!

      Hi, thanks for commenting. I hope you enjoy what I write. The blog’s still very new to me so I’m still learning. I’ll head over and read your boyfriend’s article in a sec too. Take care, x

    Hiya, absolutely love your blog name and your Moomin tray (you’ll find from my blog that I’m a complete Moomin fanatic). :) We’re trying to move toward a gluten/dairy free diet (we were influenced by a book called Wheat Belly) so look forward to your nutrition/food tips as well!

      I started writing a reply and then somehow lost it so I’ll start again :). Thanks for saying hello – it’s always good to ‘meet’ a fellow Moomin obsessive! I’ve not posted much about nutrition in a while but no doubt there will be a few bits and bobs dotted around as they come to mind so I hope you enjoy them and whatever else I post on here. I’ve just had a quick nosey at your blog too so I’ll be heading back there in a second to look around a bit more. :).x

    Thanks for helping me to find your blog. I’ve enjoyed poking around. Two people this week have mentioned the name Danny Gregory. You and another blog friend. So, as someone very interested in pen & ink drawing I think I have to take a trip to the library soon. Your bread drawing was great. Keep up the good work! And, thanks for the “likes” on Marian’s Art Studio.

      Ah, thanks for visiting! I’ve actually now bought the book I mention here, along with 2 other books by DG so I think they’ll keep me busy for a while. It’s nice to get back into doing some drawing so thanks for the kind words :).
