Resurrecting this ol’ blog

EdinburghvistaminiIt must be well over a year since I’ve tapped out an update on this here blog.  With the advent of motherhood, a move and trying to re-establish a work pattern again, it’s been difficult to find time to write.  However.  This is my first attempt to get this going again as I very much feel writing this blog is part of my creative outlet.  It helps me to keep track of what I’ve done which helps to plot out where I’m going or want to go.

The above work is the latest, having found its way to Curiouser and Curiouser on Broughton Street.  I will be making a small diversion from this usual way of artmaking and hope to show that progress through these pages.

This year a favourite work of mine, Geocockenzie, will be exhibiting at the RSA Open Exhibition, Lower Galleries, Edinburgh.  This is the third time I’ve been lucky enough to have had my artwork selected to exhibit in the RSA.  I say ‘luck’ here as it is so very much dependent on someone in that panel of judges liking what I do.  Bizarrely, the last time I entered that artwork, it was rejected.  So.  There you go.  Some luck.  And thanks.

Also, this year I have been invited by Ro Diaz, an artist in Dallas, Texas, to be a part of his annual exhibition.  This all came about through a meeting of my brother and this artist whilst they were working on a volunteering project.  I would have never have guessed I would find a connection into the artworld of Dallas, Texas, but there you go.  Life is strange.

And finally, I have a postcard sized artwork trying to earn money for charity through the Mini-Masterpieces hosted by Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland.  There are dozens and dozens of fantastic pieces on there and I hope to be making my own bid very soon.

Seems like a lot all in one go, but after a year of quietly working in the background, well, it’s been a busy life.  And of course, the most exciting thing is that I have a little sidekick to share it with.

I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. I also work as a primary school art teacher. I feel lucky that I can divide my time between the two activities.
