I hope this finds you well and life is returning to a semblance of ‘normal’ since my last newsletter over a year ago. Lots has gone on over that time both outside and in my studio. Here’s a general update split into Flow, studio practice & exhibitions coming up VERY soon. My studio practice: IContinue reading “Newsletter February 28th 2022”
As the evenings draw in it’s a good time to start pondering the next steps for your practice. G4A grant applications submitted soon will bear fruit (if successful) in the New Year and motivate you during the short winter days and the long cold nights. Maybe it’s because the evening light is still hanging onContinue reading “Autumn: find your Flow – seek new horizons, plot, plan, fundraise – 4 mentoring slots available”

So here goes, in a nutshell, this is what I/Flow does: Flow specialisesContinue reading “Flow likes a challenge, but what does Flow do? who do we work with? where do we do it?”
NOTE, THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 2013, BUT THAT ISN’T EVIDENT ON THE POST. Last month on Friday 1st February I launched Flow Advice by offering a huge TWELVE half-hour mentoring session to artists. All slots were taken and feedback tells me well received.
