Blue Boots

My blue boots from today, ink and watercolour. First drawing for a bit, tried drawing them the other day but didn’t work. I’ve been tired after the show and curating etc So glad to get back into stuff again!

Self and Other preview shots!

Here are some photos taken by me inbetween talking to folk and giving out wine and juice. So glad I managed to take some! Had some wonderful and very special conversations with artists and visitors. I felt blessed indeed, still going over it all in my memory as you do! Thanks to everyone who came it means so much. To those who haven’t seen it I will be invigilating Thurs and Friday for the next five weeks 11-4ish(have to get my train) Would love to see you there and chat.

Self and Other show at Neoartists Bolton

It’s the preview of our collaborative show this Saturday 18th August so do come along if you can! 2-4 pm at Neoartists gallery in Bolton on the upper level of the shopping centre near Debenhams. It’s really gone up well even though I say so myself. Jasmine Renold and me curated it. A great mix of old artist friends who are painters, and new friends found on twitter surprisingly enough, as well as some met at Neoartists. There are painters, sculptors, installation artists, textile and stitch artists and poets. A great mix all exploring the Self and Other starting point. Not to be missed! Huge thanks to Jason and Thalia from Neo for hanging and Richard and Susan for all their support and advice. Here are some shots of the prep for your delectation…
