February FOs – Love Is Awesome

Progress continues on the to-do list; I had a fruitful day of designing packaging for the sonic tuckshop at Sonic Art Oxford, and my recorder is filling up with sounds for Gentle Fire by Alvin Lucier. I will be performing Gentle Fire in the afternoon on Saturday 27th February at Oxford Brookes University in the […]

Rustles and Cheer…

Today’s morning bought lovely surprises when I switched on my PC and found Colleen’s beautiful Amaryllis, Kate’s gorgeous photo with waxing moon, Liz’s cheery, steaming coffee mugs and Caro’s amazing photos of her garden. Many of my friends are a drive, or a very long drive or sometimes a boat or an aeroplane trip away […]

‘neighbourhood divine-hymn singing’

I was startled this morning when – from just beyond my window – came the joyous sound of drums and chanting. According to the BBC Berkshire website, today is the day that the Sikh community in Reading are celebrating the birth of their faith by having ‘a colourful, celebratory procession called Nagar Kirtan, which means […]

The Summer Wardrobe/what to knit?

The knitting has been rather murky on this blog for a while. I have been revelling in neutrals, mushroom colours and (as is my penchant) many shades of green. A spate of FOs recently gave me much joy, but I suddenly ran into a wall where I wasn’t enthused or organised enough to proceed with […]

Love is Awesome is Open!

Thaddaeus is my brother and there is no way in the world that the show would have opened yesterday without him. Not only did he lug my maple-top table from a car-park into the gallery and up the stairs, not only did he drill into the impossible walls of Gallery 10 for me to be […]

Thanks everyone for your feedback and thoughts on what makes a really great poster; the prize-money will go to printing the Cards that I am making for Love Is Awesome. This poster was […]

Love hurts

‘What is the point in being artists, if we cannot save our lives? ‘ That is the cry that wakes us in our sleep… – Alice Walker, Horses make a landscape more beautiful. I am moving out of Mark’s house and through mutual and blameless consent we have decided to finish our partnership. I have […]

Love Assignment #2: make a flier of your day

I am going to make the flier tonight, but as an exercise to warm me up and give me some illustration ideas, I thought I would get the text up here. Wake up. Lara’s House, 7am. Have overslept. Cold, dark, winter. COFFEE. I leave. Oxford Express to London. Knitting Hourglass sweater until travel-sick at Hillingdon. […]

Much loved.

The other day I got a beautiful, hand-crafted package from one of my really great friends. It was so cheering and lovely that I felt it necessary to share the package and its lovely contents here and to make a public declaration of thanks for all the love. It has certainly filled me with joy. […]
