Moving On Up

116

I have sat down to write this post at various times over the past two years ten months and there has never seemed a right time. I have always written from the heart and have lost my voice ( make that chosen not to write) a lot over the past couple of years.

In February of this year I got divorced.

There …said it.

It’s been a difficult time, and that’s all I’ll really say on the matter, but I felt like I wanted to get it off my chest. It’s had a huge impact on my life and is part of my story.

In a few weeks I will be moving out of the home where I have lived for the past sixteen years, and into a new house.

New beginnings…new stories to tell.

I’m in the midst of sorting through my belongings at the moment, and it’s taking ages to wade through all my junk. My artwork alone is a huge task. I am trying to be ruthless, but felt inspired by some little scraps which I found and they are the beginnings of a new piece of art. It began with this tag which I made a while ago…

Creating something will help me I think, and I wanted to celebrate all the lovely positives in my life, and the amazing friends I have around me.

Onwards and upwards!

20:20 Print Exchange 2014

It’s that time of year again when I’m getting ready to submit my work for the 20:20 Print Exchange run by Hot Bed Press. I have been working
under the ever watchful eye of Denis at neoartists.

Rather than do solar plate etching again I opted to do a screen print on fabric, and experimented printing onto lots of different types of fabric. I ended up choosing to work with linen. You can read about my other 20;20 projects here and here.
