In December I submitted the final drafts to the first two modules on the MA.
I navigated and battled my way through feminist artists in history and women who have presented work relating to the relationships they hold with their children.
I painted and scribbled and found a cross over from my jewellery business, in to my art – something which I had initially kept separate.
I went with it and created a small exhibition with a portfolio of work created in the past few months.
Something which I have distinctly lacked in recording here.
There were numerous overlaps, mother, artist, wife, worker, academic student. At the end of it all, I was really appreciative of the Christmas Break and time for my family.
The effort and hard work at University has been duly credited and I am happy to have passed Art Theory and receive a distinction for my portfolio and work presented.
I had envisaged January being a hive of creative activity.
I met with external examiners and Professors at the University.
I have connected with mother artists.
I attended Derby City Arts Summit.
I have just received further instruction for the next modules of the MA.
I haven’t really spent much time with my paint brushes.
I haven’t read as much as I would have liked.
I am still moving forward.
