DIARIES OF THE DOMESTIC

My daughter Joni was born on 3 November 2016, before she arrived, I had big plans for the artwork I was going to make during my 6 months maternity leave from work. However it hasn't quite worked out like that!

Instead I am creating a visual diary, making small paintings from the things I see around me at home, working with limited resources and limited time and seeing where this project takes me.
