Art makes fools of us all.

Bit of a sweeping statement, but thats how I feel right now. A bit of a fool.

Spent all this week getting my exhibition ready. Last night, after finishing (really late) , I had a last look at it and thought, “Oh my God, it does look mad.” I’m going to be really embarrassed sitting in this mock up of a children’s bedroom. People are going to think I am wierd. Also why did I decide to be in an estate agents? What on earth do the young lads upstairs think of a middle aged lady playing with a doll?

Then, I got no visitors all weekend! Feel quite disillusioned. I don’t know what’s better, feeling embarrassed about showing the work, or nobody seeing it.

I am an artist working with photography. I like to work by using performance and then photographing the performance. I seem to be increasingly using the moving image alongside the photographs. I spent over 15 years working in mental health, whilst also practising art in a studio in Spitalfields market. I then became involved in regeneration projects and was one of the team who won a lottery grant for Hastings Pier to be rebuilt. I am now concentrating more on my art practice.
