Guest on John Dalton's Art Podcast - Gently Does it
I was delighted to be asked to be a guest on John Dalton’s legendary podcast. He has interviewed many of the greats of contemporary figurative painting – including Nicolas Uribe, Colleen Barry and Ruprecht von Kaufman to name a few.
My episode clocks in at just over 2 hours and I talk about paint, inspiration, and my friendship with Lucian Freud!

Collaborating with women artists across the world
Artdom is an organisation pairing artists up to work on projects together-
“We bring together talented individuals driven by a desire to spread their message through artistic expression, thereby building bridges across international barriers, fostering global cooperation and empowering each other in the process. Our goal is to amplify the voices of female artists everywhere. Each year, we focus on two countries with contrasting level of women’s rights. Artists, from different countries, work in pairs and create and complete artworks focusing on one topic.
Their artwork is a message about freedom, feminism and equality—about a world were no geographical barriers and unjust laws hinder women from expressing themselves. Each year, we focus on two countries with contrasting level of wo- men’s rights. Artists, from different countries, work in pairs and create and complete artworks focusing on one topic.”
I am taking part in the third project, pairing with an artist in India. My half has been painted and I am going to London for a photoshoot and to meet the other British artists. Watch this space !
