Embracing the new.........


It's just gone one in the morning and I can't sleep!! My head keeps whirling around with thoughts and ideas!! On the art front all is quite ;-( no exhibs coming up unfortunatly but I will keep trying and plodding along as always. Created some new work while I was away in Bala at the beginning of the month, it started as a automatic drawing outside in the Welsh landscape (while I waited for my sister and co to wake up from their hangovers!! hehe!) I then finished it back in London but still attempting to keep the automatic mode and feelings I felt while I was in Wales. In the bottom left corner is some wool I found in the field while I was in Bala that I later added on.

I've also started my moving image project, for some time I've wanted to work in film again in a short animation. My aim at the moment is unclear n which path I will take or how it will develope however I am quite excited. Whatch this space!!! I've finally started work on my self-portrait or autobiography piece, it isn't a direct self-portrait but that is also something else I would like to develop in the future.....urgh!! too many ideas and not enough time!!

On the career show! (I am currently looking for a new job, allthough all my efforts are squandered at the moment....I am hopefull in the future someone will give me a chance!!) onwards & upwards as a good friend said lately.

Anyhow that's me for now, will keep you posted,
Keep it real, keep it arty

Hi to all,

Now life is back to normal, and how sad it is to be so. I had a amazing time planning and organising the show (not to sound too gooey and sickly sweet but) I had such a great laugh and emotional roller coaster putting it all on. Some fantastic pieces of artwork and truly intriguing work was on display. I think my favourite moments were when the work started to come into the gallery, when we finally got started with the curating and the last bit of artwork was hung! Plus singing motown tunes while scrubing the floor, eating tasty pizzas from the kewl pub down the road 'Indo' and shouting "oi, oi, oi, OI!!" to get everyones attention for my ickle opening speech!! Was very scary, atleast over hundred people came to the opening night!! Thank you so much for everyone that helped, participated and supported us......muchas gracias x
