Currently Working On


Firstly suppose I better say sorry about the lack of posts here recently, but Uni has me spread pretty thin. My last deadline is coming up on the 2nd of June and then there is the exhibition to plan for and after that I have a gloriously long summer ahead of me. All the same I thought I would share my most recent work with you in the hope it will make up for the shockingly low amount of posts over the past couple of weeks. But rest assure I have lots planned for the summer for my little space on the interweb. Watch this space.

Life Lately

You may have noticed I've been somewhat M.I.A over the past couple of weeks. That being due to a very important Uni presentation I had on Wednesday morning at my local art gallery, in front of the curator and my lectures. Nerve racking isn't the word. Thankfully everything went to plan and now I have an uncomfortable wait for the feedback. As you can imagine I haven't been up to much just preparing for my presentation. But I do have a couple of snaps to share with you from the past couple of weeks.
1. The Moon: A photograph I  took one evening whilst sitting in the garden. The crescent moon shape always reminds me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. I always expect to see a pair of mischievous eyes and a stripy tail appear.
2. Studio: As you can imagine with Uni deadlines looming I have been spending a lot of time in my studio. Which many of you most likely don't know I have. At the end of last summer my Dad and I built a studio for me at the bottom of our garden. There are still a few things that need finishing off before I do a studio tour, the plan is to get it finished during the summer. I feel incredibly lucky to have a space completely dedicated to my artwork and it also made me realise that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I feel as if I'm that one step closer to reaching my goal.
3. Plants: Mostly likely the result of too many sunny weekends spent helping my Dad in the garden coupled with too many evenings spent scrolling through Pinterest, which has gotten me doodling all things gardening non-stop. In particular succulents and watering cans. (Wait a cotton picking minute, what about succulents... in watering cans? Genius)

4. Dried Flowers: I did some seriously creative procrastination. Drying out flowers in the microwave. Which unfortunately turned out to be a bit of an epic fail I burned most of them and the kitchen didn't smell too great afterwards. I suppose that's what I get why I try to be all Pinteresty.  
What have you been up to lately?

Seven Things Sunday: why i hate being ill

Over the last couple of days a head cold has sneaked up on me and hit me at full force leaving me in bed surrounded by mugs of milk and honey and hugging a hot water bottle. As you can probably guess I feel very attractive right now. So here are seven things I hate about being ill.
1. Generally feeling awful.
2. Knowing about that massive amount of Uni work I have to get done.
3. Having to cancel plans with friends.  
4. No matter how many showers I have, I still feel groggy.
5. Not being able to sleep.
6. Not being able to get comfortable.
7. Reminiscing on times I wasn't ill.
But thank goodness for Netflix.
