I am an artist, photographer and art teacher blogging about the world as I experience it and sharing what I find interesting. A selection of my work is available from www.saatchionline.com/Sophiemayersart, or directly from me. Please contact me with any queries. Thanks for your time.
The inspiration word for The Arts School‘s 52 week challenge this week is SELF. I am using it to reflect on where I am with my own art practise and what I want to do this year.
It’s great to spend some time stopping to look both in and out.
So far (it’s day one!) I am seeing a renewed interest in how “we” are effecting the environment around us (my BA final project was on this), story telling (which my MA thesis considered), and lots of exploring materials.
Whatever you think of the royal family, surely you have to appreciate that the events this past weekend were fantastic. Like many others I celebrated the Queens 90th birthday with my family and neighbours; In the rain, in a field, eating, playing games. Wherever you were the idea was the same – celebrate the Queen, have fun with our local community. I love being British!
I also curated a little exhibtion of old photographs and documents from the village.
