  1. Hell is empty and all the devils are here

    January 24, 2013 by cat



    Today I saw Shakespeare 4 Kids perform The Tempest. If you get the chance, go see them. It was fantastic just to see the school groups so completely engrossed in the stage. I didn’t see any child not utterly raptured by the stage.

    Tomorrow will be a long day. So I had better go sleep some of it away!

  2. Photograms – Materials/Process

    March 30, 2008 by cat

    Today and yesterday I’ve been printing. I’ve been doing photograms of my mum’s memento box – the same ones as the baby booties and stuff I took in the studio. I also did some other prints, but they’re for something else and not dry so I can’t scan them just yet!

    The rest are in a gallery. Thought I should share.

  3. Materials and Process

    February 25, 2008 by cat

    For the past few weeks I’ve been lacking in creative juices. This has meant that I’ve done very little work for Uni. So on Saturday I thought “What did I used to do when I couldn’t get work done??” I had a rather useful idea of painting. I haven’t painted anything in a while.

    For my materials and process project I’m looking at the effects of Bi-Polar Disorder on the visual perception. I started with the title “loss of insight” – words chosen at random from a conversation with my mother over my sister’s recent mental health troubles (asking whether it was loss of insight or realisation of needing help).

    So today I present to you my latest painting!

    The image that I used to paint from was one I took at the Imperial War Museum North (in Salford Quays).

    The painting has really got my head into gear. I now need to get some sketchbook work done!

  4. One Day Project

    November 20, 2007 by cat

    Today I had a one day project at university. Our brief was to take a fork, apple and a digital camera to work with Composition.

    I took my camera (Canon 10D with Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 lens), tripod, flash gun (Vivitar 285VH and sync cable), flash metre, apple, fork, the rest of my lunch and some tissues. With that jolly list I created 12 images, some of them are good, some are bad and some are just plain ugly!

    This image is simply called Fork.

    This is the gallery for the rest of the collection.

    I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. As always I’d love some comments and or critique.
