One Lovely Blog Award

I have been nominated by Patricia from Art Does Matter for the One Lovely Blog Award!! In order to accept the award and pass it on I have to complete a couple of tasks.

First… thankyou to Patricia for nominating me. Patricia’s blog is diverse and is well worth a visit, with posts about painting, ceramics sculpture, photography, her own artwork, other’s artwork, and lots more.

Secondly I have to share seven secrets about myself… this is the tricky bit!

1. I have had a very nomadic life – not by choice – and have moved thirteen times. Were I live now is the longest I’ve lived anywhere, and I never want to move again.
2. Despite this nomadic lifestyle – or maybe because of it – I can quite easily become a hermit, and bury myself at home writing, drawing, reading, etc.
3. I have a PhD, and although everyone who has done one complains about how harrowing it was and that they never want to study again, I actually enjoyed it and would do another one!! Craziness…
4. My dogs name is Eddy and no matter how much we try to control his diet, he just keeps getting fatter!
5. When I was young I used to collect stamps… and I still like looking at them. (sheesh, that was a hard one). Recently I made an artwork about colonialism and used some stamps on the artwork. An image of this artwork can be seen here.
6. Some people would call me a radical socialist feminist – but I just believe in equality. Unfortunately there is not much of that around.
7. I spend way too much time in cyberspace “networking”

Thirdly I need to nominate up to fifeteen blogs for this award – and let them know – so here are some blogs I follow and enjoy:

  4. Dawn, thank you so much for the lovely mention. I really enjoyed reading your seven things! Number four is hilarious, and I feel my youngest kitten is already heading down that same road! 😉 But seriously – what a fantastic blog you have, and I love seeing/reading about all of your work as well. I will check out the blogs you’ve nominated too!
