This week I am still enjoying the afterglow of my residency at Cove Park. I’ve been back in the studio working on some bigger pieces.

This week we celebrated International Womens Day.  I am so thankful for all the women who have, and continue to support me in my work and life.  Over the last couple of years,  I’ve  also really enjoying getting to know so many fantastic women artists – so this week I’m taking a bit of time to celebrate that. I also got the keys to a new studio space – how exciting.

This week I reflect on some endings and beginnings. Like so many others I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, and so I couldn’t not mention that sad news. Her legacy will last for many, many years to come. On the beginnings side, my life drawing classes started again this week and I share how they have inspired some landscape work. So in the video I share how a couple of pieces are beginning.

No Comments

This week I share a more about a couple of exhibitions I have been able to go to IRL (in real life). Firstly the Karla Black, sculptures (2002- 2021) details for a retrospective, currently on at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, and the RGI Summer Reflections at the Kelly Gallery in Glasgow. Seeing other artists work is always a thrill and and does help to broaden my own perspective and practice.
