I haven't updated my blog for a while because I have been so busy!
Unfortunately, due to 2000 people applying for the Shaun in the City Sculpture Trail, I was unsuccessful this time. However, they have said they will announce another round of successful artist in October, so fingers crossed!
This month, I volunteered on a project, assisting Artist Will Rosie in the creation of the largest coin mosaic in the world! It was so useful to speak to another artist and see how he approached the project. Thanks and well done Will!
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been focusing on submissions for art exhibitions, community projects and residencies.
I have submitted some work for the South Central Exhibition at Aspex Art in Portsmouth and for the Grand Bauble Hunt at The Hillier Gardens, in collaboration with the Mayflower Theatre. It is just a waiting game now, to see if I am successful!
Now that I have been teaching for 3 years and have volunteered on a number of projects, I feel confident that I can lead my own! I found out today I have an interview for the Grand Bauble Hunt project and am so excited!! I really hope I am successful on this one, because it would be an amazing opportunity for me to prove the skills I know I have and to create a fantastic Cinderella themed trail! I have also been in communication with a local school about a project involving making mosaic coasters. I am just waiting to here back from them about timings, so let's hope it works out and can go ahead!
Over the last couple of weeks, I have started my mosaic sphere, with a little interruption from other commitments! But, I hope to finish it this week! As well as this, I have been sorting my tiles into jars! Thanks you everyone who donated their old Yankee Candle, Douwe Egbert and other coffee jars. I am still after more, so feel free to keep donating!
I have decided to start a blog for several reasons. To help me remember all the things that inspire me, to share these with others and to keep a record of everything that I am doing. I will update my blog regularly. Feel free to share and comment on posts!
