This weekend has marked a couple of exciting new things; Friday saw the opening night of Journeys & Migrations at Handmade in Bradford, which includes a small group of my work. I usually find private views and openings slightly scary, but in fact it was a lovely chilled out affair. I think it is the pressure of knowing I should be 'networking' that freaks me out, but if I am logical about it I actually do this without thinking about it. So thanks very much to the lovely arty folks I met, and to all the wonderful people at Fabric for putting together the exhibition. There is quite a variety, both in responses to the subject matter and in media and style of execution. I really enjoyed the mix of media, including artists books and zines, film, painting and live art. I highly recommend a visit to Handmade in Bradford, especially as you can even sit and have your lunch there in the picnic parlour...

Also this week, after a few technical setbacks, my website has been updated, re-designed and is now finally live.
If you can visit either I would love to hear what you think.
