The artist defines the artwork in its inception, but once it is released becomes owned by another's imagination. The spider-web of social media has found its way, or been let into, the studio. Tempting us to give up, the perfectionist finishes the artwork but lingers over the social media posts, applications and secondary employment. Insider or outsider, the greatest requirement of being an artist is time. 


White Lies

The white lies we tell ourselves to buoy our egos against the weight of negativity.



Ageing Before Acceptance

Be the Child 

Create without labels, play with others (but remember to share), and bring the noise to get what you need even if you can't find the words to communicate it.
