About Interruptions -
An artist's scrapbook of inspiration and happenstance.
As an alumna of Blogger from the mid noughties I've been missing the writing and the community I couldn't naturally capture on Instagram or via a Mailchimp newsletter. Being an unapologetic introvert, subscribers scared me, but this feels like the right place. I do love comments and interaction, so feel free to add your two-pennies’ worth, or just lurk and nod sagely.
Going against all advice I don't publish regularly - I don't need another streak to break.
When I do write it'll be about things that inspire my creative practice, from art exhibitions to a word, a colour, a photograph, when I have a new collection or just when I notice something, like I did today. I might even send a poem now and then or I might mention Columbo.
I’m generally not a fan of interruptions at all, like my friend Reynolds here. But if you're an artist of any kind, or interested in the life of an artist/woman/mother, you might enjoy it occasionally.
I'm an artist and illustrator from London, designing cards and prints which I sell, license and wholesale to lovely shops all over the world from small indies to high street shops.
My love of ceramics means I draw a lot of them, their curvy shapes and myriad of handles. When I’m making a new print I feel like an interior stylist in a way, arranging shapes and objects. It gives me a lot of joy.
I also create abstract collages on paper, playing with composition, butting shapes up to one another until I feel the perfect aesthetic resolution. My mixed media paintings take this further, adding more interest. I like to build layers with paint, crayon and scribbles, then add papers as glazes to create bigger shapes. The juxtaposition of delicacy and strength interests me.
