I've always considered starting a blog, primarily to showcase my artwork, along with thoughts, comments and insights into why I create my work and what it has been inspired by. I also thought of it as a good place to share the work and theories of artists that inspire me and help to inform my practice. I shall be doing all of these, but the reason I have started this blog is mainly because of a new project that I have been doing since I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for the second time, due to severe OCD. (That's another thing that I will regularly discuss in my blog, my on going battle with mental illness. As you can already see from my website, my fine art work is based around my own experiences with mental illness so this is a great place to share my struggles and how they inform my work). As I was saying, my newest project began fairly recently, and involves work that I am currently making daily in response to how I am feeling and what had happened during the day. So this is where I shall be sharing my works each day, explaining a bit more about them and allowing people to view the work as I make it. I'll explain in more detail when they blog is properly up and running, but for now, keep your eyes on my twitter feed as I shall be tweeting there about this project too! I look forward to sharing this new project with everyone!
