Orleans House Gallery, 18 artists were asked to select a work from the London Borough of Richmond arts collection. I chose the explorer, ethnographer and translator of Arabian Nights, Richard Burton and his fencing shoe. I made a sculpture of a leg, using a vintage French stocking, embroidering an image of Richard and his wife Isabel engaged in a fencing bout.

After a few years of using facebook and instagram as a platform, I thought it was time to give this space a new lease of life. 5 years ago I graduated from Camberwell School of Art (UAL) with an MA in Visual Art (book arts). After I graduated I met lots of artists through my friend and fellow artist, Jude Cowan Montague and was invited to take part in some really fun group shows in unusual settings (mainly underground!) from car parks to crypts. Facebook and instagram became the preferred platform for connecting with other artists. There was an immediacy in these platforms and with that a lack of input of thought on my part. I had not read any blogs in the last 5 years, and then I stumbled upon Helen McCookerybook's blog which has inspired me to take up the written word and start writing and posting links to my work and also the work of other artists and events that have caught my attention. Welcome back!
