My dear friend and fashion entrepreneur Anna Reig Florensa has been hosting me this week in the fantabulous island of Formentera where she has been indulging my passion for bikes! We have been roaring around very well dressed on a 17 year old moped called Lido, which very sadly today has given up the ghost. Which in some ways I feel is a good thing, since I generally have accidents when on this island.
We fell into a bit of a hole - quite literally - on my first evening and have quite a few scars to prove it. And no idea of how they came about. Having retraced our steps-chugs, we are still not much wiser. We did find Lido eventually, although a couple of calls to the emergency services logged on the phone suggest that something untoward befell us..
Fingers crossed I get out of here and back to the motherland alive next week!

A wee snap of my good self and my tremendously talented partner in crime, Caroline Walker in conference in her studio in London. She has a fondness for the dark side, like myself, but chooses ageing, scantily clad females in interiors as opposed to fully clad males in the middle of nothing, like me. She will be showing soon in the illustrious Marlborough Fine Art in August.
Such is my admiration for her work, I even try to match my footwear to her paintwork when I visit!
We are hatching a plan to make a research trip to LA and Vegas for a few weeks in the autumn, all being well.
See creative accomplices for more of her fabulous work.
I forgot to post about this back in March and I'm very proud to report that my underwater drawings are now the official images of Sennen's "Age of Denial" album and the singles from that album.
It came out in March, and if you're into noisy guitars, you should really give it a listen. See their link in creative accomplices. They are doing extraodinarily well and were tipped as hottest download by the Sunday Times a couple of months back.
It's taken me a good few years to wake up to the reality that Wherever You Go, There You Are, which seems a simple enough concept for a seemingly intelligent girl but it's eluded me till this year! Anyway, it's the idea behind and title for this piece. There's just no getting away, damn it!
It is one of the final pieces for the Edinburgh show. I hope you like it.
