Meeting up with Freddie Robins @iamfreddierobins

@kathandcompany Gallery in Twickenham London – one weekend only unfortunately but I managed to catch her – must be 30 years since we last met – and it was as if we’d seen each other the week before.

We were at the same 6th form college in Brighton, and then were amongst the very few art students who went to Hastings College of Art and Technology for our foundation course, both disappointed at first not to go to Brighton, it actually became the most positive and influential accident of fate for us both, a wonderful course, incredible teachers, including legendary Rod Harman, unique life long friendships made and inspirational learnings.

Freddie is now a professor at the Royal College of Art and makes totally thought provoking feminist mixed media pieces that need to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated – I am so honoured to have been able to be in contact again – the gallery is amazing and is hosting 12 artists over 12 weeks bookable online http://www.newartathome.co.uk

My contribution to open Windows 2020

In the postponed period of Brighton Artists Open Houses 2020 due to social isolation period there has been a brilliant idea to get local artists to exhibit their paintings in the windows of their own house; here is my contribution, harder than it looked to attain, the large pieces looked very sad indeed but this little framed piece worked nestled in the corner of our front window.

Always interesting to get a different perspective on our work as artists; didn’t feel brave enough to leave it there long, but I am definitely feeling inspired to keep painting and appreciating having a studio at home and a garden to go and commune with nature and get inspired – being in flow with painting is one very good way to forget for a few moments/ minutes about COVID 19; I hope anyone reading this is staying safe and sane in these very strange times.
