Phew…back after a busy day of hanging and curating at Free Space Gallery..the space looks Fantastic…..so bright and vibrant!
Accurately measuring & painting this board for my mini Illustrations was the tricky part but it was worth the time….I think this board will be a regular feature at shows & exhibitions……
Just six days until I start putting the work for my Solo Exhibition up!! super busy…..don’t forget the Private View for my show is Friday 6th Feb (6.30-9pm) & I’m also holding a ‘Vintage Tea Party’ in aid of Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer to start the show (3.30-5pm)

Following the hugely successful ‘Human Suffering’ Exhibition at Debut Contemporary Gallery (curated by Artist Barry Martin), the show has been extended with additional theme: ‘Boys To Men’.
A brief which has no doubt taken me out of my comfort zone as I’m used to focusing my work around female themes.
I always ensure that how I interpret a set brief can relate back to my personal outlook & experiences and so wanted to ensure that what I created reflects the ethos of my work and a subject which fascinates me; in this case child development and how childhood experiences can stay and affect us into adulthood.
As you will be aware a recurring muse in my work are dolls, so I felt it would be exciting to create an Artwork based around seemingly innocent, ‘charming’ toys which a great deal of little boys like to play with and what they could represent in an adult context:
Wooden Soldiers: War
Toy Guns: Violence
Vintage Toys holding hands: Relationships & Heartbreak
Robots: Technology taking over
