A week or so back (yes this post is a little belated) I received a package from Poppy Porter, my Contemporary Jewellery Exchange partner. After discussing our plans on how to approach this project we decided on a studio swap of sorts: sending one another three items which would give the other person some insight into their practice.
Poppy's package contained the original strings from her Bass; some drawings from a muse track (Poppy has Synesthesia); and some Muse tracks (her favourite band and the reason she started to play Bass), all contained within a lovely little box which was originally for a Bass pedal.
So, it's been a fairly long time since last posting anything, and this pretty much reflects the creative output from me over this period. Not that I feel I need to explain my absence, but for context I'll let you in on the secret: I've had a baby. His name is Oswald... or Ozzie or Oz for short.
Thrilled to be heading over to The Banff Arts Centre this July for the Thematic Residency entitled "Blueprint for Happiness". Delighted further by the fact I've been awarded the Mary. E. Hofstetter Legacy Award for Visual Arts.
