The last 12 months has been so difficult for all of us. I have tried to keep going by trialling new work and by doing lots of experiments. I have done online courses, I have gone back to previous work, I have gone way off on tangents and finally some of this is bearing fruit.
In June 2020 I became involved in the setting up of a regional group of Design Nation members in Cornwall and Devon. This has been something of a saviour for me. Firm friendships have been formed and we have been working together with the Royal Cornwall Museum to create a very special exhibition reflecting on what we have all been going through: the loss; the isolation; the loss of income and also reflecting on the places which we have spent time in: the value that we place on our environment and on the simple pleasures of seeing friends.
I have revisited earlier work and explored new ideas.
This work is now beginning to come together and I am so excited! I just hope that we are allowed to show everyone what we have been doing.
There will be much more about this in the coming weeks but I could not wait any longer to tell people what is afoot!
Thank you for your ‘new post’, it all looks and sounds very exciting and looking forward to hearing more and seeing you to catch up in person, that will be good. I liked the bit ‘I have gone way off tangent’… that I can believe!! Have fun and take care
Love Annette xx
