The Procreate Project selected my work for the Mother Art Prize back in 2017. They are a brilliant organisation that aims to 'support the professional development of contemporary artists who are also (m)others, working across disciplines'. There is so much to admire about the vision and tenacity of the organisation and of its founder Dyana Gravina. They push forward with new initiatives but also continue to support and champion the artists they have worked with in the past. I don't think that's a small thing. Motherhood is tough, and feeling like you've got long-term creative friends in the background cheering you on is valuable to help keep your creative life going.
This is a project in which they are creating a series of public exhibitions using hoardings. The idea is to increase visibility for artists who are mothers and carers. This is my work as part of the exhibition currently in Deptford, London. Other venues have included Modern Art Oxford, Hastings Contemporary and Lewisham Shopping Centre

The finale! The closing event to my exhibition in Cambridge - 'Herstories: problems & solutions' went really well I think - with huge thanks and appreciation for my collaborators for joining me and allowing me to show their films 🤩 to an appreciative audience. Special thanks to Chaucer Cameron and Katie Dale-Everett for talking so eloquently about their work and their concerns.
Cheers to Richard DeDominici for Sylvia:Redux, for documenting the event with these great photos & for helping my coin toss 'Listening or Not Listening game'. Congratulations to the winner a copy of 'The Authority Gap' by Mary Ann Sieghart Please digest and pass on! 😁
Thanks to everyone who came, to Art at the ARB, and to Judith for all her support and organisation.
Very honoured to (remotely) be part of the preview event on 6th September for this year's Bucharest Feminist Film Festival. The curators selected four films from previous festivals to discuss how art and activism intertwine, and consider them in relation to the mural made by Wanda Hutira on the terrace of J'ai Bistrot Bucharest.
