This is a blog to chart my progress in returning to work as a studio artist and freelance arts educator. In 2005 I gave up my studio practice in Hackney (Glebe Road Studios E8) following the birth and subsequent loss of my second child, and just before my third child came along (I now have three daughters).
In February 2013 my three children, husband and I moved from London UK, to Nairobi, Kenya. The progress of which is a charted here. We had a truely amazing experience. In 2016 we moved back again. I hope I managed to bring me back too.
To get back into teaching and thinking about art I undertook a Masters in Art and Design in Education at The Institute of Education UCL. The course was absolutely fantastic and I loved every minute of it(Click here for course details). I passed! (just waiting for final mark) You can find some of my research projects on these pages and my films can be seen on vimeo.
