Looking forward, looking back

It’s been an unusual winter for me. I’ve had several shifts in my health over the last couple of months which have precipitated long stretches of sitting/laying on the couch. I’ve been doing some drawing, trying to keep up with contracts, but in all honesty it’s been difficult to get it all done.  Anyone who…

Big news!

I’ve been sitting on this since Sunday.  I’ve been accepted to join an artist residency in France in February/March 2017 in Bernay en Ponthieu with Nomadways.eu for a workshop by the name of Stories We Tell:  Stories We Tell will invite artists and youth workers from various corners of Europe to meet and exchange on…

As we commence

It’s high time. I’ve missed blogging a lot. A lot, a lot.
