I've just been looking back over the past year, remembering my journey, and pausing in the moment before I move into autumn, and what in many ways feels like a new year. After five years in education I still think in school years. One of my hopes when I left university a bit over a year ago was to continue working and to get a feel for who I am as an artist now that I have been cut loose. It has often been an act of faith. I am mostly quite broke but I love what I do, and that is priceless. And, all the artists I know are amazing, warm, generous people whatever their skill is. To be a part of that community is similarly priceless.
After I got back from the summer residency in Cumbria I was contacted by Emma from Norwich Resident http://www.norwichresident.co.uk/ which is a high-gloss local lifestyle magazine. She wanted to interview me and to have some photos taken of my home. She said that it would be in the September issue. I was pretty nervous and I tend to talk too much when I'm nervous, but both Emma and the photographer were lovely and this is the gentle article that she wrote about me and my home.
I am on pages 70 and 71 Issue 16 September 2014
