I'm not one for making resolutions but like a lot of people I get reflective around the new year. Even more so because my birthday is at the end of December and as I edge closer to thirty the passing year hits a little harder each time.
In 2014 I visited New York, Paris, Venice, Croatia, Belgium and India as well as attending lots of festivals and meeting some wonderful new friends. I worked on some great illustration jobs, took part in exhibitions and embarked on a personal project I am very proud of. Last year was brilliant and I want to take a moment to say thanks for all your kindness and support.
Sometimes being an artist feels like one big therapy session, and I think I am just starting to find my feet. There's a big pile of work on my drying rack, made since I finished university, that won't see the light of day but it feels important not to throw it away. The pile represents mistakes, experiments and disappointment and I'm sure a few things will be added to it this year! Along with my experiences those pieces helped refine my style and working practice and I'm grateful. There's a long way to go but lately I've been excited about what I do and less anxious about showing people the stuff I create. There are a few fun things in the works for 2015 and lots of unknowns too. Hope you have a great year!
Here it goes....
