Well 2015 disappeared in a flash. If you're a parent, you may know what it's like being PA to two school age small people. Trips, Homework, Clubs, Sports Days, Performances, Social Engagements, the long list goes on. You have to be on call and engaged 24/7, whilst proactively pre-empting possible future crisis points. How I managed to create and get new work into three major exhibitions last year, is beyond miraculous!
Spring 2015 saw work on display in the impressive Mansion House on the historic Shugborough Hall Estate and the exhibition was seen by a record number visitors. Summer 2015 saw a return to Lichfield Cathedral, somewhere I'd exhibited previously and is a wonderful landmark to show work in. The Autumn exhibition was at The New Vic Theatre, in a wonderful newly refurbished gallery space and cafe. The exhibitions were very successful and received loads of positive feedback. Thanks must go to the team from Staffordshire Enjoy Art for all their help with organising logistics and the promotion of the exhibition schedule.
The new year brings new challenges as ever, but I'm feeling pretty positive about the tasks that lay ahead. I have loads of new work in progress and several creative projects underway. I'm going to try hard to keep this blog updated and streamline my social media presence. I should be exhibiting again at the Shugborough Estate Mansion House in the spring and the Wedgewood Museum & Gallery over summer. I'll get more details on dates and entry times up here when things are more formally confirmed.
Here's to a peaceful, productive and prosperous 2016!
