How are you coping with iso and how are you enjoying it?
At the start of the pandemic I was pretty anxious. I think everyone was already really concerned about the state of the world after the bushfires. But as time has gone by, I've learned to enjoy this time as a chance to slow down. It's great for people and the planet in many ways. My studio life hasn't changed much, but I would usually be very busy with openings and events in the evenings. I am grateful to be healthy at a time when so many people have been affected by this virus.
What are you working on?
At the moment I'm working on my next solo show for Sophie Gannon Gallery in July, called "The Listening Ship", partly inspired by a trip to Antarctica and this interesting time we find ourselves in!
Any reading/listening recommendations you can share?
I always listen to a lot of music and podcasts while I'm painting in the studio. At the moment I'm reading a book called "Act of Grace" by Australian author Anna Krien
