seNor fauxhawk

I am thinking of putting these old drawings onto some baby onesies, the one of the horse finger puppet always reminds me of my brother. Spooky thing is that he just called to let me know about a great song 'Lisztomania' by Phoenix....

first baby

This bag of bones kitten in Mexico chose us to be her parents for a while. We thought THAT was exhausting and difficult - then we had a real baby...
The wall work is one that we did for a gallery in Oaxaca, Mexico. We had just had quite a difficult experience involving dead animals and it was really therapeutic to make a work about things we were grateful for. I love Campbell's Schielesque self portrait.
I thought I was glad to see the back of those jeans and top that I lived in for a year, but now I just wish I could fit into them again!!

milk and sleep details

I went into the gallery today to take some pics of my show. It felt good to be able to bring the images back home so I could remember them and start to hatch plans for the next body of work. Even though breastfeeding is time consuming it is an ideal time for plan hatching and daydreaming...:)

When you live and work in a 2 bedroom unit it is important that most of your exhibition is able to fit into one IKEA expedit niche.
Other important things include: mums serving hot chocolate at your exhibition, feedback from beautiful friends, and of course support from an amazing and (surprisingly) organised boyfriend :)

As well as painting, a lot of ice cream eating and baby gazing has been going on.

milk and sleep - what goes on

Here are some pics of works in progress for my 'milk and sleep' show. Yes, I am embarrassed that it has been over 2 years since I attempted to start this 'blog', but, the thing is that my boyfriend is far too good with all this stuff and I have been freeloading off his skills. Stay tuned - I may post again sometime this year :)
