making and doing




oh my ....I am not sure that this book making lark is a reasonable or a sensible pursuit.

It takes forever and there is still loads more to do and only one day left as we are travelling up to the big smoke this friday by train !
I simply loved having my solo and other gallery shows but there is a huge gap to fill afterwards and this is why I decided to make artist books/zines of my drawings ,the first of many I made as part of my degree show in 2009.
artist books/zines are egalaterian , affordable , intimate and a complimentary medium to my original works.
My drawings get to have fun,to be turned into different contexts and be with lots of people....it makes me feel more connected as an artist.
If you are able to come on saturday , do drop by our stall and say hi .
I will be exhibiting with Richael but also helping out on the tinderbox stall too(conveniently next to mine so I can make a fuss of Elidas new baby :) and catch up with the lovely lady herself :)
