I am a Welsh visual artist living in Canada. My loves are art, fashion, literature, my hubby Len and my cat Kita. This blog is a diary of sorts. A documentation of the interests, tangents and daily dealings that work their way into my art. Being an artist is my compulsion. This blog will record the struggles of being an artist and a human being…two states that sometimes seem to be in opposition.
Catching Up The Slender Thread was the title of my MFA thesis exhibition. It is also a quote from the great William Morris written in 1889. In a lecture on Gothic architecture, Morris proposed that the future of architecture should be a building on tradition rather than a blind imitation of it. I think that this could still be relevant today in art, fashion, music as well as architecture.
Perhaps this will be the slender thread that holds my posts together.
