The works during this residency have developed into a ‘series’ based on Corris and has therefore become a site-specific development of a new body of work. I’ve began to investigate spatial relationships between the organic and industry; using casting processes […]

It’s 3am and can’t sleep. Mind buzzing with ideas so got up to draw in case I forget on waking. Suddenly after nearly 3 years everything’s starting to make perfect sense. So much to do in just 4 weeks – […]
I was just re-reading my blog entry and looking at those images which I’ve been thinking about printing. I suddenly realised what has been the subliminal influence underpinning the way I want to make those images look. Here again is one […]
Trying to focus my work into a sensible, acceptable, believable, academic Research Question on which to hang my current art practice, is an ongoing and largely frustrating task. I’ve dithered about with Landscape, Sense of Place, Time, space and movement, […]
My my, we are well into February aren’t we. Art-wise what have I got to show for it? It certainly has been a patchy month. Having received 2 bits of news, (one bad and one sad), I have to confess […]

I’ve recently been visiting exhibitions and exploring artists work in the flesh, Nairy Baghramian’s Scruff of the Neck at the Marian Goodman Gallery blew me away. The space itself and her material choice was a new encounter to objects that […]
AUDIOBLOG – Please click here I’m in then. New studio at last. (I won’t go into the details of how here, that’s in the bursary blog ) Sarah handed me the keys and in that small, mundane gesture lay the truth. […]
Well, you know how it is? Sometimes, you have to keep things secret until they are all signed and sealed, in case they all go horridy wrong, as a small girl once said… Dan and I spent much time looking […]
