The Future beckons The Albert NW6

I'm really excited to be starting my residency at The Albert in 2013. The studio is painted, the trestle table laid out and materials assembled! Developing the theme of transition and focusing specifically on the areas of breaking through and transformation i hope to make sculpture again now i have a place to experiment and make some mess!!

Glimpse of A Space In-Between the land and sea

This late winter day was full of brilliant sunshine and the sea receded to reveal land which beckoned.....

Post death.... line them up!

What happens when you die? where does your soul rest if indeed we have one? Well in Hampstead you get to have a bench and other people sit on it and possibly reflect on your life or not. And the flux and flow of life indeed does the line of benches

Halloween at The Albert

Had an amazing night at The Albert last night getting children to write spells then dip their arms into a bucket of cold jelly brains.....then the horror of the unknown really came into play. The choice .. settle for an eyeball or plunge deeper to find a worm?... the excitement versus the unknown? The liminal....never easy.

A blaze of glory

For two days a year this bush transforms and looks like it appears on fire with vivid color then dies off! Its a spectacular way to live life I think.

The Albert Transforms


Transformation starts to take place at the Old British Legion club in Kilburn. It will be a meanwhile space for artists and performers for the next ten months. First the flags, poppies  darts and carpets have to go to make way for new possibilities. Meanwhile its rolling sleeves up time and gutting the interior!

Hanging around...

Feeling uncertain and in suspension, which way will things fall? Do I keep open to possibilities or do i make a decision ... many things are in the balance ... staying with the feeling and trust something will fall into place or flood with unseen possibilitys?

The Space In-Between

I visited Yarnmouth by yacht and before we sailed the next crisp February  morning i found this pier stretching out into the foggy sea. Still and quiet taking my gaze out to the unknown, no-one to be seen. I sailed 10 minutes later into that sea and looked around and found the unknown to be tranquil and quite extraordinary. I could have been anywhere and knew i was in the space in -between.
