Joan Baker is such an inspirational woman who taught so many of the successful welsh contemporary artists and I feel so lucky having had the opportunity to go visit her today. Her house was the most incredible space, I really love my job. Plus her artwork is beautiful and I’ve spent so many hours handling and studying her paintings that it’s amazing to finally meet her.
I’m actually so grateful they did this because now it’s clear that he wasn’t just trying to run off he was going to get the tie she thought would bring out his eyes everything is okay now
Also I met one of my favourite artists today - Sue Williams! The perks of working in an art gallery. That’s her painting behind us, weird to think I was hanging it just a couple of months ago.
mosaics are made from broken pieces but they’re still works of art and so are you
I saw someone on Facebook last week post a status about how ‘everyone’s a feminist these days’ and when I asked her why this was a bad thing she said ‘we’re living in such a female-dominated world and we need to start thinking about men’s rights more.’ How backwards is that?
