Since taking redundancy from my Adult Education employment, I've been building my own private classes and demonstration / workshop provision to Art Societies. I don't miss the paperwork that threatens to sink public bodies nowadays and it's great to be in a job that sometimes doesn't feel like going to work.
I've also been providing life classes to forward looking 6th form groups looking to create qualty work for potfolios in support of college applications. Great to encounter a range of students who are looking to do wide ranging options like game design, theatre/ costume design etc.
I also really enjoy demonstrating to traditional "women's groups" as you get most excellent cake!

“Spatial awareness is to know yourself in relationship to the universe – overcome the vertigo, shut your eyes and fly. There is no up or down, only relativity” - Marcus 2010

Using acrylics is like oil painting in a time warp - "IT'S JUST A JUMP TO THE LEFT ......... "

Hi my friend! Well, I've just had a single malt to chill out a bit after a very taxing few days. I am trying to keep on top of the major house extension we are having and I am dreaming plans and wiring diagrams and kind of living the project manager role. It will be great when it's done but this week is when the staircase is put in and the new heating system. THAT means an invasion of contractors on the ground floor and NO room to move. Also put my back out completely running wiring for the sparky. Better now after acupuncture!!!

WELL YOU DID ASK!!!!!!

Seriously ------ nice to hear from you. More art soon as I have some ceramic commissions to get to.

Yeah! We moved out of our house a few years back to "gut it". Best thing we ever did! Looking forward to hearing about the ups and downs. Rest your back! Hugs!
