This year will, fortunately, full of making – unlike last year which was full of funding applications! I have two big exhibitions to make new work for, one at the end of the year and one in a couple of months.
I will be sharing my daily makes for 2015 on Instagram, hopefully every day for the rest of the year. Here is my first week.
