Artist's Access to Art Colleges (AA2A)
I have just heard that I have been selected
for the AA2A
scheme at the University of Cumbria based
in Carlisle (formerly Cumbria Institute of the Arts).
This project offers chosen artists the opportunity
to use art college facilities to develop their work. It is designed
to assist in career development by enabling them to undertake research,
development and realisation of their work. The scheme runs between
October '07 and April '08.
I am extremely excited at this prospect and I anticipate
a new direction in my work as I explore techniques in this new and
lively environment. It will be an interesting challenge working
alongside students and quite different to my more usual working

I will be documenting my progress and experiences
in Carlisle on my forthcoming blog "Cakes and Art" coming
Next month from the 28th November to the 8th
December I am having a solo exhibition entitled "Flow"
at the Tolbooth
Art Centre in Kirkcudbright. I am presently
working hard to produce new pieces for this. In next month's newsletter
I will preview some of the work I intend to exhibit.
Green & Blue
This month I have created a video to show the inspiration
I gain from the multiple shades and tones of greens and blues.
Sit back, press play and enjoy.

I love sea-glass, smoothed and mellowed by the motion
of the water, and have incorporated pieces in several of my artworks.
This month's image shows how I have used sea-glass placed on dyed
silks and covered with frayed muslin. Feel free to download it for
your own non-commercial use. Right-click on the image below
