Come and see me work!

I have been quiet for a while as I have been developing my business (The Arts School), raising a toddler boy, and making some work, but I am now back! I have (for my sins) organised another group exhibition as part of the Hailsham Festival artists trail and I would love you to come and…

Starting new projects- having reflective weeks

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!)…

Saturday Addition 9: Bringing drawing back

Today’s addition again comes from the Paper exhibition at Saatchi, although it is now ended. Today we look at a Dawn Clements work “Movie”. Dawm Celement creates large scale drawings of scenes, this one a movie. This work makes me think about our fascination with others, with living vicariously through films, and TV, through magazines…
