I am so excited to be heading to Cel Del Nord Artist residency in Barcelona tomorrow!
I cannot wait to see what comes out of my brain!
I feel so incredibly proud to be Social Buzz Magazines 2nd cover gal!! And to have been interviewed and had the chance to pour my heart out a little! I sit amongst so many unbelievably talented people and business boss's that I feel like its a little bit unreal still and I am in a little bit of shock haha Thank you www.socialbuzz.com for the amazing opportunity. They will be littered around the North West so pick up your free copy and enjoy the amazing content the magazine has to offer! It is a celebration of everything that is wonderful about our region and I will be forever grateful to be a part of something so special!
My all time favorite time is to lock myself up in my studio and develop a new series of paintings. I have been working on my new body of work since January and I cant wait to see where I'll end up.
For the past 6 months I have been branding a new Japanese street food concept called Sutikku! The launch coincided with the finale of Chinese New Year so it has been an extra exciting February for me!!!
Thank you Liverpool local TV for interviewing me about my commission! I sound so strange on telly and waffle on a bit but hope everyone got the gist! haha And to all the other press reports too! A massive thank you!
What a journey this has been! I want to thank culture Liverpool for bringing my animals to life! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Chinese new year and you continue to enjoy finding these 12 beauties around the city centre!!!
At the beginning of January I was commissioned by Culture Liverpool to under take the massive job of doing the Art work for this years Chinese New Year festival. This year is the year of the pig and the theme for the festival was the storey of the Chinese great race. My job was to create the 12 Chinese zodiac animals and each one would be presented in some form around the city centre for the public to find. They were each assigned a building so I wanted to give each animal its own personality so they would come alive from each of the buildings! They are being released 1 a day apart from Sundays they release 2, from the 1st Feb culminating on Sunday the 10th with the grand finale of the Festival and the revealing of the Pig Artwork! Its been a thrilling journey and challenge and I am loving watching each animal come to life on the buildings!

This summer, eleven of Liverpool’s leading visual artists will exhibit in a show for the Independents Biennial 2018 (IB18) exploring current practice in contemporary painting in the city.
From 14-29 July 2018 the former George Henry Lees department store will be transformed into a temporary exhibition space to offer a unique snapshot of modern figurative and abstract painting in Liverpool.
Taking its title from the first and last lines of James Joyce’s novel Finnegans Wake in which the first and last lines join the end to the beginning to start again, a long the riverrun joins together artists with different forms of practice but a common sense of endeavour that is both playful and serious.
The exhibition will occupy the ground floor of the historic store building which first opened in 1897.
The Independents Biennial 2018 (IB18) is the fringe event for the 10th Liverpool Biennial, the UK’s Biennial of contemporary art. The Independents Biennial is led by Art in Liverpool, the city’s leading independent art news website and magazine. The Liverpool Biennial and Independents Biennial will run from 14 July – 28 October 2018
