Future Planning Summer 2019 – Summer 2020

 

It has been a 10 year long journey to reach this MFA degree.

 

I believe, that over the years, I have learnt to build a sustainable life, balancing University challenges with family life and commitments.

 

My mission is to continue making work about environmental issues, conservation and preservation of the natural world.

 

 

TO DO LIST

 

Reflection period of the past 10 years of academic studies

Having a working space available at home, I need to nurture contact with fellow artists for collaborative projects and for professional exchange of views and critique.

Continue research into galleries/ institutions which would be interested in my kind of practice.

 

FUTURE PROJECTS

To take part in a group exhibition Sept/Oct 2019 with hylopath gallery, an art apparatus. www.hylopath.org. Positive e-mail exchange and a meeting with gallery owner have taken place. Dates tbc.

 

Having been able to spend many times in Africa’s bush I have now established contacts with relevant sources in South Africa and Namibia to join one of the conservation projects there.

Planning for January/February 2020, the length of stay will be 6-8 weeks. I am particularly interested in one of the Rhino/Elephant protection and conservation program and Environmental and Wildlife Education. To be confirmed shortly.

 

GOALS

 

I want to be part of an exhibition at least twice until next summer

I want to learn a new skill which will strengthen my art making and could lead to new ideas and approaches

I would like to undertake a collaborative project- to write a book- about discovering creativity at a late stage in one's life
