update 5/6/16

It’s just occurred to me that I haven’t blogged since my portfolio hand-in date. Things I wish for my small but dedicated following (that’s right mum, you) to know: I obtained a grade B for my body of artwork that I submitted I obtained an A for the two essays I submitted (goddammit) I’m currently […]

No longer *that* Basic 14/04

So maybe I over-exaggerated. It’s been a whole *wow* two months since, in my self-loathing I wrote that ‘I’ll never be a real Wah Wah’ article. I’ll be real with you, loyal reader. I’ve been totally inactive as far as blogging goes. (Apologies, sweet reader. My sweet, single reader.) It’s even been a struggle to find motivation to paint, […]

What it Means to be Human

I wrote this alongside my artwork in first semester, however in light of recent events I feel that it is relevant to my life and practice this semester.

Paris

14/11/2016 Yesterday, people were killed throughout Paris in places of relaxation and entertainment. Today, it is impossible for me to think about anything except for that; there’s nothing else I can do apart from think, and feel. I don’t think that today is a day for analysing or for figuring out why people are the […]

Girl Drummer

I have heard the words, “you’re a great drummer… for a girl” at almost every gig I have ever played at. Whilst I will delicately accept the compliment, with a dainty hair flick , I still can’t fucking understand why women drummers still struggle to be taken seriously. I’ll admit that I haven’t grown tired of watching our audience members open their […]
