My dreams and desires.
inspired by Olivio Neto
I am a mother of three and grandmother of three girls. My family has always been important and making secure foundations has been a priority. Then I can paint. On the outside I am quite ordinary and people are quite surprised by the unique paintings and imaginative storytelling. I am shy and prefer to be in the background. All group photographs tend to show me on the middle to back row, often to the left and slightly hidden by the person in front. Although I organised a French/UK exchange recently and I was firmly centre stage in a group photo. I was OK about it. I established studios comprising of 18 spaces over eleven years ago. They are closing next month for a number of reasons. Many of the artists have been there for the duration so it will be sad. But I know I have given it my absolute best so I’m OK. As long as my conscience is good I’m OK. My career is going well but this also makes me nervous. I don’t handle the pressure well and tend to return to my shell. Also i don’t make the best work under pressure.
A few years ago I made the decision to slow down the process and the work has more tedious, decorative elements combined with gestural marks. This process isn’t good when galleries want more of your work when you are producing less! I have lots of different groups of friends but I’m also happy with my own company. I have a shed at the bottom of my garden where I paint. This is my oasis. I will miss my studio in Long Eaton but I think I will cope. I will get another space in Nottingham eventually as I will miss those conversations you can only have with other artists

This is what I think makes me me: laughter, sadness, careful looking, specificity, care.
inspired by Hayley Feldstein
I wrote about me being me because of my heritage and of the many experiences I’ve had. Experiences that have come to me either by choice or by random events. I live both by the fear and the love of the unexpected. I thrive, at times, by stepping outside of myself and then to gaze back within myself and to marvel at worlds that I hadn’t entirely engaged with. I scan through old family photographs and regret how short each and all our lives are. Evidence of which show how illogical parts of my psyche all appear to be.

We think the rules we set ourselves internally define us, mostly moral linked but along with this and the myriad of small influences there is some indefinable spark in a person that sets them apart from everyone else.

Music, love and affectionate relationships teach me a lot and inspire me to do something. Poetry and cinema also play a big role in finding me myself. Also, great artists that I have interacted with, the way they think has registered somewhere in mind. All this could be me as far as I am feeling at the moment.

I feel related to the philosopher Santayana who said: “Why should things not be highly absurd, futile and impermanent? They are and so do we – and those things and we go very well together. ” George Santayana

Art, love and peace makes me.
inspired by Raashish India
What makes me, me? My need to stay individual and to create art. When I was 2, I declared I was going to be an artist and I have stayed true to this. I find it impossible to separate my need to create from who I am… even after a major illustration deadline I then pick up a pencil and draw for relaxation! I can’t even imagine who or what I’d be without my art – that’s what makes me, me!
