April Book Inspiration - Just Kids by Patti Smith

Image Source
I have just finished reading Just Kids by Patti Smith and it was the most amazing book I have read in ages. I couldn't stop crying in the end one because it was so sad and two because the book was over and now I don't have it around to escape into every day!

It's look at artistic and musical life in New York City in the 60's and 70's was fascinating as well as the story of Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe's friendship. I can't recommend it enough - so inspiring!

Elizabeth Process Shots

As mentioned AGES ago - here are some process images from one of the works from my solo show 'Elizabeth'. It was very much one of my earlier portrait experiments and have learnt alot with this piece so am excited to take some of the ideas further in future work. Looking back on these images makes me realise how many little changes happen along the way while trying to put the image together and it's always so far from what I initially imagine.

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter!

Interview with Dell Stewart

It's been a while since I've done an interview over at The Creative Haven so it was awesome that Dell Stewart wanted to have a chat to us about her stop-motion animation work. Dell is currently doing a residency at Harvest Workroom and the animation that she has been working on there will be showing in the window at Harvest Workroom while she is there.

Please pop over to have a read if your interested to find out more about Dell's animation work.
