Time in the studio working, creating, developing ideas has been invaluable this year. So far I have deliberately not applied for any opportunities or bursaries or exhibitions. I’ve needed the time to think. I cant describe how I value it so much. It has kept me sane. Today is the first time I’ve updated my website or thought about public perceptions of my work for a while. Nurturing that inner artist is I know a deliberate and self conscious act by many artist. But as a person whose has an enormous work ethic and fortunately a lot of drive I have often neglected that soul and assumed it would serve me endlessly. Well I was wrong. Thank you to everyone I’ve interacted with recently as you have helped me.
