Painting In The Time Of Lockdown

This week on the blog, I calm down and get reflective after a month or two of slightly frenzied painting output.
And actually get around to writing on my blog.
I know. It’s been a while.

All in the best possible taste!

How to be an empathetic human?

I was clearing out the bindweed from my garden this weekend when it occured to me that, in a way, it is like a virus. By that I mean that it is a form of nature which, in seeking to […]

I can’t imagine a future without creativity

In this time of crisis, when normal life has been so uprooted, it’s important to be able to adapt to the changing situation. The same is true for us artists as anyone. For example, when the Williamson Art Gallery’s Open […]

How do we live without each other?

Here in the UK, we are enduring the second week of self-isolation (aka lockdown). I struggle with anxiety and depression even in normal life and this pandemic has just made it so much worse. I really miss my freedom of […]

Water saves lives

In this time of the coronavirus crisis, we’re being asked to regularly wash our hands to curb infection. If people are anything like me, this will increase our water usage just when we’re meant to be preserving it to save […]

It is entirely impossible for me to ignore the coronavirus crisis this week… As I type, I’m self-isolating, as advised by the UK government, due to having flu symptoms. I don’t know what it was but it passed on Sunday […]

Good Artists Walk

Last week, I came to the conclusion that no matter what I do, I’ll end up hurting someone. This left me feeling stuck; I felt I had to do something but I also felt I could do nothing that helped. […]

Whip Whip Hooray!

It struck me last week that, whatever way I look at it, I will derive pleasure from hurting others. On the one hand, as I have already acknowledged, my art practice – which I rely on for good mental health […]
