I was delighted to be accepted this year to show in the Project section of London Art Fair and was disappointed when it was clear that the show would not running in real life. Luckily the online edition is running and I am so terribly proud to be showing two female artists that have given me the goosebumps in the last couple of years – Sherry Kerlin and Marice Cumber.
Given my excitement I have decided to dedicate a whole page to this show here where you can see some of the artist’s work and crucially, read the curatorial statement.
Two years ago I attended the super Back to Business conference by the Really Helpful Club. What I learnt there filled me with ideas, confidence and questions and pushed me on to what I do now – a fulfilling portfolio career in which I do a bit of everything and love it all. Amazingly I have been asked to host a ‘virtual table’ to talk about portfolio careers and actually in the midst of Covid challenges, I can’t think of a better earning strategy. I am so grateful to the women who helped me and still continue to support me to get to where I am! I couldn’t have got back on my feet post my divorce without you and I remain eternally grateful. Fay at Bright Sky Career Coaching Annabel at Annabel London (bespoke PA and administrative support) Sally at Knightsbridge Recruitment. The conference is on 23rd September and is chock jammed full of brilliant speakers who will certainly inspire and make you think. Book an early bird ticket if you would like to see them, or if you want a laugh book and join my session and laugh at me!
I am so delighted to be curating a small pea pod booth at 100% design this September 18th- 21st 2019. Come and say hello, bring me some photos of your project and I will tell you more about how I work and may even give you one free idea (two if I like you!) for any art consultancy projects that you may have in the pipeline.

I would like to thank Little Greene for providing me with the paint for my stand – it went on beautifully and I got away with only one and a half coats because it was such beautiful quality. The colour used this week was Dark Lead (118) and it has been an absolutely beautiful foil for the artworks presented this week.
Thanks go to the following artists who kindly agreed to show with me: Peter Jones, Dominic Beattie and Sarah Ball. The beautiful textile hanging on the chair on the right is by the wonderful textile artist Beatrice Larkin who is my neighbour – come and say hello to us – I am on stand E24B and she is on stand E24C!
