Filming in the Studio

I am collaborating with Chocolate Films to create a short documentary as part of the 1000 Londoners project.  This exciting program creates a unique digital portrait of our city.  It offers an insight into the lives of 1000 people who consider themselves to be Londoners, taking in all ages, religions, race, income, interests and opinions.  Each week, a profile of a Londoner is posted on the home page.  The profile contains a 3 minute film that gives an insight into the life of the Londoner, as well as their own personal photos of London and some answers to crucial questions …

Exhibition: Inspired by the Flower Market

I have just delivered artworks to the framers to be ready for Artist Open House – one month today.  I have chosen box frames and opted for pins to hold the paper in place rather than glue.  I like the honesty of seeing how something is put together.  I am exhibiting artworks inspired by New Covent Garden Flower Market during the first two weekend of October – all very welcome. Dates: 1-2 & 8-9 October, 11am – 6pm Venue: Zinc White, Arch 8, Railway Arches, 150 Putney Bridge Road SW15 2NG

Private View of Layered Drawing Exhibition at NLCS

It was great to share artwork completed during my Artist Residency at NLCS with a new audience. I enjoyed meeting old NLCS girls who recognised the locations of where I took rubbings that were incorporated in my work from around the school.  I had many lively conversations about the titles of the artwork, the history of Canons Estate and the role art plays in education.  Huge thanks to all at NLCS.
