New flat, new art space and new work started. Finally out of the old flat that I loved into the new basement flat with just the three of us, two artists and a baby. There are conversations flying in the air about getting a cat, but it's still a handful looking after Efa and trying to get on with my art so I may ponder on that for a while longer. New art space is actually the corridor but where there is a wall and a desk, it magically changes into a art space for me.

I wish I had another arm or maybe two more! One would be drawing and doodling ideas, another would be hammering nails into walls to install art, another would be creating stunningly scrumptious food for my tum and the last one would be moping up baby puke and poo!! Not very attractive the last one! Perhaps I should have a fifth arm with a glass of vino in it. Either way what I’m trying to say is I’m a balancing act, between being a visual artist, being myself, being a lover and a mother to a 4 month baby!!
Between the giggles and the tantrums my mind is ticking away with ideas and creations that finally I have the opportunity to produce. In April next year I’m showcasing a cross-section of my work and a couple of new pieces in a contemporary gallery in Caernarfon,
I’ve started to scribble ideas, developing and working on old ones and collect materials for a sculpture/installation I want to create for next year. Using previous subject matter for a series of works inspired by the painting created by the Italian renaissance artist Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/4 – 1579). His painting ‘The Vestal Virgin Tuccia’ (about 1555) has influenced me to create new pieces of work in 3D form, working in a mix media approach contradicting the intention of the painting. Will be interesting to see how it pans out.
One more thing, if you fancy doing something different or visiting a new area of

Title: tictoc 2010
Sunday, 25 April 2010
These drawings/watercolour paintings are the beginnings of a on-going project I wish to work on and produce through -out the year. Refering back to mediums I used at the very beginning of developing my practice (funnywomen) I'm using these methods again, the loose vibrant watercolours with linear black lines and text. These drawings will be very personal to me, an autobiographical expression of me dealing with loosing my Nain (Grandma) who past away this year in February.

This piece of artwork/sculpture/installation is a new development in my practice. I have been playing with using the idea of labels for two years but this piece is the first finished and exhibited. I have had some mixed response, non-negative which is good but I am hoping to continue in experimenting with this medium and develope my ideas further. Title of the piece was 100,000 and the medium was mixed media (labels, paint, ink and collage).

Presenting REPEAT & REPRISE, an ecletic showcase of artwork including painting, illustration, photography, print, mixed media and sculpture, inspired by the subject of repetition. This can be taken as an acknowledgment of the endless series of repeated and recurring patterns of behaviour and events that we all consciously and subconsciously observe and involve ourselves in each day.
All of the participating artists presently work as daytime staff at the National Gallery in London. This is their second independent exhibition, following on from their well-received first show 'In A State Of Flux' in Whitechapel last July (which was curated by Rebecca F. Hardy).
