1. What a week last week was! I’m gearing up for another busy one this weekend - watch this space for french transmissions…. 

     
  2. The Other Art Fair is nearly upon me and gracing yourselves with its presence! If you would like a complimentary ticket for two to the fair in Marylebone, London this weekend, please re-blog this post and whisper me your email, but preferably not the chinese way because I would hate to get it wrong… 

     
  3. New finds, new gardens, old walls, old lands…

  4. And in the midst of a few feet of spring time snow I think its time to remind myself of hot dry summer days spent in the magnificent rural NZ countryside.

  5. I’m late I’m late I’m late I know, but exciting prospects are afoot…

    Come April I’ll be exhibiting at The Other Art Fair at Ambika P3 in Marylebone, London; and come May I’ll have all my fingers and toes crossed in hope of my work being picked for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition… 

    Entries and confirmations all stamped and sent, now for the hard work, late nights and burning of the midnight oil to commence.
