Who says it doesn't get hot here in England? We are currently wilting our way through a record-breaking heatwave. That hasn't stopped me from all manner of making that involves heat: paper burning, hot blown glass, and welding.
March roared in with a heavy workload and travel-wrecking winds, but that didn't thwart efforts to finish and ship eighteen pieces of original artwork, introduce a new series, and participate in a one-week residency in Germany.

If you can believe it, the light is already rising here in the UK with afternoons growing a tiny bit longer each day before it gets dark. I am always heartened by this, even in gloomy February. It reminds me that Spring is coming with the darkest days behind us.
Which was the theme for my installation at last month'sBlue Monday exhibition at 44AD Gallery in Bath, shown above.
In the meantime, things are humming in the studio where we're working on 15 pieces for three separate projects that all will be finished before it's officially Spring next month. For a peek behind the scenes and more, read on!
Looking forward to my 'Open Sandwich' talk at Spike Island on Thurs. 15th Nov. in the Assoc. Space 12-1pm. I'll be discussing new work for my MA Fine Art at Bath Spa Uni, a recent pop-up residency at The Cells in Trowbridge with Angel Greenham, and how this all fits into my commercial practice for the international designed interiors market.

Hard to believe that we're about to wrap up the first year of a 2-year MFA degree! To cap off our trimester and celebrate the end of Year 1 there will be an Interim Exhibition that coincides with the Degree Show for graduates.
