News Update ….. July 2018
All other projects complete. I have had a fabulous time working with some wonderful women but I am now finally able to begin some work on the next series of paintings and will be using the rest of the summer to put together a small collection. I am currently inspired by photo’s I took whilst visiting the Orkneys and as always my local landscape. I have been experimenting over the past few weeks regards colour palette and hope to put some of this into my practice. I will be continuing my gilded collection too. Finally I am pondering on creating a body of work that links my interest in folklore and art – not there yet but putting a few ideas together and letting them sit awhile.
I’ve been asked by Boundary Way Project (Wolverhampton area) – a community growing space – gardens, minds and spirit to run a couple of workshops one of which is related to the Processions project (Saturday May 19th)- to make a banner for the women of the area but with an emphasis on the connection of women and growing spaces. The other is about Celebrating Spring – through folklore and creativity. (Saturday March 17th) take a look on Boundary Way facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BoundaryWayArts/ or on Eventbrite to book a place.
Really looking forward to working with this super organisation.
I’m the Lead artist (Shropshire) in the nationwide Processions Project taking place as a women’s community project to mark 100 years of women getting the vote. Artichoke is the lead organisation and has commissioned DASH as one of its partner organisations to run a series of creative workshops to make a banner that will be paraded through the streets of Cardiff on Sunday 10th June as a part of what is hoped to be the largest collaborative art-piece in this country. Many Thank’s to DASH for asking me to be a part of this very exciting project.
