It’s official – I am one exhibition away from completing my MA. “Handing-in” an exhibition online felt very strange. I had no sense of relief or accomplishment in sending over a presentation online. There was no sense of team-spirit in the curation and set-up of creating the School of Art Degree show. In an attempt […]Read more "creating in isolation"

After 4 years, I finally put together a video of the underwater life I captured in Gozo, snorkelling. It’s quite hard to film and swim at the same time so apologies for the shakiness, haha. This was before the time of the GoPro-gyro! Anyway, I hope you enjoy some footage of this wonderful place that […]Read more "Video: Gozo, Malta 2016"

With the e-exhibition looming (one month and a week to go!) I am still working constantly in my sketchbook … although I am having so much fun, I feel as though I need to be dedicating more time to my final pieces (series of 9) rather than doing exploratory work in my sketchbook. Perhaps, due […]Read more "Sketchbook Experiments"
Over the past few weeks, I have been reading more about Chinese art. More specifically the Chinese diaspora and how their transexperience effects intent and the resulting “product” of an artwork. Notions of transexperience often create a liminal space. A space in which there are two main characteristics but those characteristics are the antithesis (or […]Read more "language and image"
My current work is evolving constantly. And so, I find it very important to take photos of my progress (especially because I have a bad habit of painting over an entire piece…). As I was photographing my work, I discovered that the detail I put into my pieces is highlighted in the macro setting on […]Read more "watching paint dry"
