I’m writing about my studio, but to be honest, I’ve had no time to work in there these last few months. I have worked…. though at home, whenever I could.

I’ve been trying to raise cash for future projects, so I’ve been doing overtime in my paid job. It leaves less time to do my own work,  but needs must.

I need to find time to at least clean the studio  up a bit for the huge project that is happening there in just two weeks – Translating the street  

Its the second time we have invited artists to work in local businesses and create work  based on their experiences.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to write more  about it after the event.

In the meantime, I’ve been coordinating the work of several artists to send over to Harrington Mills studios, to be part of the Platforms project in Athens. I’ve struggled with my own work for this. Its very small (25 x 25 cms including the mount) and its 2D. Both have been difficult for me. I’m submitting a collage (see below) but I have a couple of days to alter it if I change my mind. That’s probably not going to happen… given the list of things I have to do this weekend, but we’ll see.

While all of this is going on, I’ve been communicating with London based artist Fion Gunn about the workshops we’ll be doing at Tate Exchange in Liverpool this summer. I’ve booked my train ticked to London and once there, I’ll assist on the trial workshops there so that we can bring the project up north.


I am excited to be working on so many diverse projects, but it is a little terrifying too.

On  that note though……I’d better get moving…..
