Bumbling New Beginnings

Hey everyone,

My bricks and mortar gallery has been closed for over a month now, and I have been bored to say the least. Bored. Out. Of. My. Mind. All of my art supplies are in storage, my new studio space just a glimmer in my minds eye, the long list of things I could be doing a little overwhelming, out of work, money dwindling faster than the Roadrunner being chased by Wile E. Coyote...

Okay. Focus.

  • 1. Get a job with a steady, reliable income. Talented kids travelling around the world for sport does not come cheap. Nor does feeding and clothing them.

  • 2. Renovate a studio space and get painting. Masterpieces do not create themselves.

Thankfully November came along with some success... I've scored myself a day job (Plan 1. tick) and my very generous, merciful parents have my new studio being constructed as we speak (Plan 2. in progress) and I am back on the road to smashing this thing called life.

I hear your big question... Are you going to have enough time to paint while working full time? Answer: Oh my god yes! I was running and fronting my own business solo remember? I'll probably have more time now (wonderful uninterrupted time) than I ever had before, and I'll only have to walk out of my back door to do it. I won't say I would rather be doing it this way. I'd rather be creating full time, yes for sure! And one day, I plan on doing exactly that. But for now this is what I need to do. For myself, for my work and most importantly, for my children, for us to move forward and make change.

I have some exciting new ideas running rampant in my head for new artwork... some of which I haven't done before, lots of concepts using mixed media with fabric (which I know you all LOVE so much). And many plans for Art Fairs and pop up exhibitions in the coming years.

I know I've been very quiet... but you haven't heard the last of me yet!
