The last two months have been both extraordinary and mundane. An artist's life is fairly solitary at the best of times and when I am in the studio working it's easy to forget what is going on in the world. Thank goodness I have a garden, the dogs and a husband I love, we are existing in a bubble and are content for now. I ventured out this morning to get the dogs some food and couldn’t stop smiling when I met the owner of the pet shop - it made me realise how long it has been since I’ve talked to someone other than my husband face-to-face, albeit 2m apart.
Work is keeping me occupied and I’ve had a number of very enjoyable commissions. I received word this morning that my exhibition at The Old Coastguard hotel has been postponed until next year, which is a real shame, but not unexpected. With the summer months ahead of me and no exhibition I will concentrate on various projects: I’m working on an illustrated alphabet and a series of small paintings for an online show at the end of the summer.
I've also been playing around with more animations, including this one celebrating the wonderful NHS.
Take care everyone and keep safe,
