The Great Chatsby

This is a presentation of my favourite works over the past two years. I quite like most of the things I've done really but I cant fit everything in now can I?

Anyway here you go, love it or hate it, this is what it's like to be inside an art stars mind.

Enjoy, be afraid, laugh, cry, cringe, get in touch , love me hate me etc,,

An army Of me

There is one thing I have learnt in recent years, although I think deep down I already knew it in the first place, and that is that I am not a collaborator. I don't enjoy it, I don't like it and I don't necessarily believe it is helpful or right for many people.
I've collaborated with people I have nothing in common with , to people I love very much and neither experience has been fulfilling or helpful to me.

I know that there is nothing at all wrong with this, in fact I like to be alone within my work, and sometimes within my life, I find it very helpful, I feel privileged and confident that I will succeed and if I do it will be alone , and that's the way I want it to be, because as Janis Joplin once said:

"Never compromise yourself, your the only thing you've got" and she was ultimately right.

I enjoy being a one woman army and not relying on anyone

and if I ever feel lonely for a split second I shall pin my smile straight back onto my silly old face , because whatever happens , my heart is a drummer and I know |I will carry on , no matter what is thrown at me.

stop your sobbing

Just because I love this song

hope you enjoy it too

What's the Point?

Ta da!

At first I wasn't completely happy with the look of this piece , I often have a set image in my head and if that isn't achieved I'm not a happy bunny, however, once I added sound to the video it seemed to immediately grow on me, sometimes accidents can be a very happy thing.
