its like an online art journal with lots of pictures. A blog even.

Documenting my studio work process. 

The 'project' part is a virtual filing mechanism/online library index file for sorting things in an ascending date of posting order. For filing and indexes.

This page shows the projects I'm currently working on/recently completed; more current news is on Instagram

I make a lot of my own clothes, which has always felt like an extension of my artmaking, so for sewing and womanly pursuits see Granny Corner

Artworking: March 2017 studio

And I thought I'd been quiet this month (I'm backdating this post so it looks like it was published on, say, the second of April. Trickster! See the modem in the house is elderly & fails to load images properly, and moving to a seat closer to it so they do load properly is like, that seat is ALL THE WAY OVER THERE. So I'm really behind on my new resolution to publish studio progress every month. Every month is so OFTEN.)

My first digital fabric print!

DREAM REALISED: I've been wanting to try some of my artwork images through digital fabric printing technologies for a long time and now I have and its thrilling!

One of my favorite patterns, this. The Carolyn Pj by Closet Case Files. This is my fourth make, this time a dress I'd long been plotting. PJ for daywear trend still going strong in my house. 

'Inscapes' body masks and assemblages process booklet

The following is slides from a booklet I put together to accompany my exhibition "Inscapes", which contains both works on canvas and small sculptures. This booklet refers to the sculptures, although they're not otherwise distinct from the works on canvas, in my opinion, as all the works are 'objects' rather than picture planes. I find out a lot about the works as I make them, as if all is going well, they are making themselves. The making process is an equal (if not greater) part to the finished object. Or at least that's how it feels to me. Maybe the following will explain that more clearly than my clumpy words.

"Inscapes" works on canvas booklet of the making process

I put together a booklet style presentation to accompany the exhibition about the processes that went into creating the works on canvas . Theres a performative aspect to my work, in a sense; there were a lot of processes over several months and for me, making IS where the art is

INSCAPES Media release

The exhibition title refers to the works themselves, which are an interpretation of Perl’s inner landscape; a private space inhabited by her thoughts, dreams, memories and emotions. As a series, the works explore universal themes such as loss, grief, faith, nostalgia and beauty. 

Hits of 2015

End of year wrap up...well everyone else is doing it, so heres some of MY favorite 2015 pics:



I've never been entirely comfortable describing myself as an artist, such a subjective, arbitrary term.

I work, and this is my profession; I make artwork, I'm an artworker.

Very large landscape, #1

1830 x 901mm. Loved working at this scale after all the teeny pieces I've been making for so long. With them my thinking has been that its an already crowded world and theres a helluva lot of art out there, it doesn't need more taking up valuable space

New year new work body mask for Susan

I made this piece for my friend Susan, who is currently undergoing a second round of chemotherapy, following surgery for breast cancer. I'd say there wouldn't be a woman alive who didn't feel a quick, sharp hurt to the heart on reading that last sentence. I know I do. Take what you want, but leave my boobs.
