Welcome to Create & Consult, where conversations occur around business and art, and chats happen discussing the application of art and business.
Communicating, organising, thinking through the doing and enabling arty stuff, playing with serious intent, with head, heart and hands working concurrently.

An idea product or service, communicated with passion is infectious and spreads, gaining followers and supporters on the way. Every person can make a great impact, especially when they recognise the "start / stop settings" for themselves.
Peronel has a quirky approach, using fun and play with serious intent in life and business. Peronel works with micro and small businesses encouraging toddling ideas to grow through adolescence into adulthood, with zest, inspiration and passion, with fun. As an artist she works with fellow creatives to find their why, their passion and the reasons behind their motivation. She has found her passion in paint and combined with her business experience has developed a sustainable and successful business model.

Her paintings are regularly selected for open exhibitions run by RWS ( Royal Watercolour Society) and RI (Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour).

We combine the two different topics from the name on the tin: the creating of art/painting and consulting in business: we talk together and facilitate getting things done, practically simply and systematically, based around marketing, sales and a focussed use of your time.
To comprehend a man's life, it is necessary to know not merely what he does but also what he purposely leaves undone. He is a wise man who wastes no energy on pursuits for which he is not fitted; and he is still wiser who, from among the things he can do well, chooses and resolutely follows the best.
