Sorry I haven’t posted for ages! It’s been a busy few months and a lot has happened!
Firsty I got an award from the festival Ciutat Vella Oberta, from the magazine 967arte! I was represented by them in ARCO this month, and they will be doing an interview with me for their magazine next year! I was also awarded, in the same festival, a solo show for next year with the gallery La Lisa in Albacete!
I managed to get to ARCO with my super husband and was delighted to see my piece there!
I have 2 wee pieces in the Fenderesky Gallery in Belfast this month, on there “Group Works on Paper” so pop in if you can! The exhibition runs till the 17th of March!

ARTIST’S STATEMENT My work is influenced by many things; mythology, folk tales and invented stories, leaving their dark side laid bare. It is about my life, the lives of others, and sometimes the life of no one at all. I use images of the past, feelings of the present and dreams of the […]

I love it when new venues appear to show art!! This Wednesday 13th of July from 19:30 is the opening of the show.
I am delighted to be involved in this collective exhibition, with my favorite artists and friends; Raquel Carrero, Susana Do Santos & Regina Quesdada!
The space is part of the Up Hostel, joined right at the hip of the Estación del Norte, in Valencia!
The theme we chose is “The Passenger”! It has a wide meaning for each artist. My principal work is with butterflies. With it´s meaning of transformation and resurrection, a passenger of life!
“In the Old World, the connotation was negative; the butterfly was thought to be the spirit of the dead. In Gnostic art, the angel of death is depicted crushing a butterfly underfoot. Its attraction to flame and light symbolize purification by fire. Sailors who saw a butterfly prior to embarkation believed that they would die at sea. In some areas of England, it is thought that butterflies contain the souls of children who have come back to life. Elsewhere in England, a person is supposed to kill the first butterfly they see or face a year of bad luck; if that first butterfly in spring is yellow, sickness is in store for the entire family. Only in Scotland and Ireland does the appearance of a golden butterfly signify something good – it is believed that a golden butterfly near the dead ensures the soul’s place in heaven.” (www.purespirit.com)
