I have been able to extend the time its on to 3rd November. So there are just three days left to see the work. Thursday 1st, Friday the 2nd and Saturday 3rd November. 10am to 4pm. Do come if you can, the installation is something that needs to be experienced rather than looked at. I … More Exhibition extended to 3rd November
Glad the private view is over, no more getting up at 4am to finish off the space, work, blurb etc. Barry’s PV was the night before mine, so I already had a mild hangover before the day started. Managed to finish the price list and organise everything for my normal work, before driving to Brighton … More At my Private View: I cried, made a sale, spooked out the builder and yoga therapist, and we only drank two bottles of wine.
Really pleased with how the installation is looking.I won’t manage to do the family album before the show ends, but will do that afterwards. Had a bit of inspiration from one of the estate agents that was working upstairs. He had used the bedroom to get changed and left his ironed shirt on the bed. … More Some Photos of my exhibition and invitation to private view
Thought I’d post some photos from the Mayday festival “Jack in the Green” A wonderful pagan festival that Hastings puts on, but in its usual “dark style”. They symbolically slay Jack to mark the beginning of summer. Quite often Morris Dancers are dressed in black with top hats and big ravens hovering, instead of the … More Do I have to pay an entrance fee?

I had some very supportive comments from friends and decided … More Official invitation to my exhibition at Brighton Photo Fringe
Bit of a sweeping statement, but thats how I feel right now. A bit of a fool. Spent all this week getting my exhibition ready. Last night, after finishing (really late) , I had a last look at it and thought, “Oh my God, it does look mad.” I’m going to be really embarrassed sitting … More Art makes fools of us all.

Thought I’d post some of the Christmas shots. Christmas being really typical of a family album photo. I still needed a photo of Barry dressed as Father Christmas, which is why, in January, I left the Christmas tree up. As usual life got in the way and I lost momentum, or enthusiasm, for taking the … More Why I have had my Christmas tree up all year.
Just took delivery of my little baby boy from the Post Office. It was strange, I felt quite excited. This whole make-believe thing is quite interesting, as it really can cross over and bring real emotions. His face seems quite realistic, but his head does seem a little small. He is meant to be a … More The Post Office just delivered my baby!
