Hanging the show - Home Is Where the Light Is

Yesterday the show went up. After more than a year of working alone on these paintings it was such an amazing feeling to put them up on the wall to share them with others. The venue - the Residents Gallery at Montsalvat - couldn't be more perfect.

There was no way I could have hung the show alone though. I was so lucky to have my husband, Kim, come along to help, a lovely volunteer from Montsalvat, Taleen, and my friend and photographer, Maria Colaidis. Maria took the most amazing series of photos throughout the day which tell the story of installing the show and also give such a beautiful sense of what the space is like and how the paintings look. It makes me so happy to have this record of the day and to be able to share some of these photos with you.

Today I gave an artist floor talk, which was really fun to do. I thought I might write a bit of a recap of some of the things I talked about today in my first newsletter mail-out very soon. If you'd like to receive it please subscribe here.

My solo show 'Home Is Where the Light Is' is on at Montsalvat from today until 17 January 2016. This Sunday 29th November I will be in the gallery from 1pm-4pm - please come and say hi!
