I’m pleased to announce that I will be one of the speakers at the Textile Forum South West conference Mapping The Future – Where are you now? on 26th March 2011 in Taunton. More information here.

In response to the dreadful flooding in Australia and South America, if you buy anything from me during January, I will donate 20% to charity. 10% will go to the Queensland relief fund and a further 10% to the Save The Children Brazil fund.
This is not a promotional thing; I’ve already made a personal donation, I would just like to give a bit more. So if you were thinking of buying some art or one of my services anyway, now is a excellent time to do so, as you’ll also be donating to a good cause.

Hooray, I’m in my first international exhibition!
One of my pin sculptures, Quiver, will be at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor during January. The Disruptive Stillness exhibition is on at the Jean Paul Slusser Gallery between 7th – 28th January and there will be a closing reception on January 28th from 6 – 9 pm. Gallery opening times and details of how to get there are here. If you’re in the area, do pop along to stroke the pins.

I started another year-long daily project. Every day during 2011, I will be taking a walk to release an art jar into the wild. You can follow the project over on the 365 Jars website. And if you’re in Bristol, keep an eye open for any glass jars left in public places!
Many things happened between July and December. But I was naughty and didn’t update this page with them. I need an assistant!

Diane Gilleland wrote a lovely review of my Let Me Send You A Secret mail art project. Envelopes are available from my online shop, Drawings & Delights.

I’ve started an online coaching service called Internet Hand-Holding. If you’ve read my free resources page but you’re still struggling with the internet, you can now buy a 45 minute session with me and we’ll come up with an individual plan to get you through it. 45 minutes doesn’t sound like much but you’d be surprised what a difference it can make. I’m also available for more advanced consulting.
If you want further information or you’re not sure if we’re a good fit, feel free to email me.

In February I gave a talk at the University of Arts in London about how artists and designers can use blogs as a promotional tool. The podcast of the talk is now available online. Obviously it was better with the slides but it still mostly makes sense. It’s about 25 minutes long.

If you’ve ever wanted to open your very own Diary Project style envelope, now’s your chance! I’ve opened a shop for my work and I’m currently offering hand-drawn envelopes for the ridiculously low price of £15 including postage. I don’t know if the price is going to stay this low, so now is a good time to buy. At the moment there’s only the envelopes in the shop but there will be more drawings coming very soon.

My blog report about the ‘Fifty-Two’ Exhibition – I made a brand new drawing that was suspended in the window. More images of this excellent show can be seen on the Calm Air All Ice blog.

I will be showing a new piece of work at the ‘Fifty-two’ exhibition in Room 212 on Gloucester Road in Bristol. The exhibition takes place from March 31st- April 3rd 2010 and the opening times are Wed-Fri 12-4pm and Sat 12-5.30pm.
The curators of the show are doing a series of short interviews with the participating artists: here’s mine.

If you’re anywhere close to Bristol, I’m showing in the Front Room art trail this weekend and I’d love to see you.
I’m at 105 Oxford Street, Bristol, BS3 4RL where I’ll be showing some sculpture and premiering a brand new performance piece. It’s the first year that I’ve taken part in the trail, so I’m pretty excited.
The opening is on Friday 20th from 6 – 9pm and then the trail is open from 12 – 6pm on both Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November.
Front Room aka The Totterdown Art Trail is the longest running art trail in Bristol. People in Totterdown kindly open their houses up as venues, so not only can you see lots of fantastic local art but you also get to have a good nose at other people’s decorating choices! If you’re in or near Bristol, it’s an excellent day out with lots going on including workshops for kids and a street party on the Saturday. The Front Room website has more details and maps.

In case you just can’t get enough of me, I’ve started a Facebook fan page for my art. I’m not quite sure what I’ll be doing with it yet but I’m trying to make it a little bit different from my Twitter and this blog, so that it’s worth joining.
