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

‘Night Tidal’ – framed acrylic on canvas in collectors home 2020

So lovely always to receive photographs of paintings in situ; Night tidal what is inspired by late night lockdown walk to the beach; the moon reflected on the inky water; this collector also has ‘Tidal’ a slightly larger – piece about the sea in Kefalonia Greece – I am very grateful that she decided to have them both in 2020 – a difficult year for showing work – this kind of support keeps us going.
