I hope you’re all safe and well in these interesting times. I have been coasting along in a daze, wondering what time it is, what day it is, and slowly reverting back to my teenage sleep patters or stay up all night and sleep all day. fortunately, now that we can leave the house as […]
I have an exhibition coming up in March. It’s quite surreal to have my name in such a ‘letters after their name’ line up. The exhibition was organised by Stuart Jones, who invited me to exhibit.
