So here we are, another Monday and a blog that I have penciled into my diary as #The100DayProject Update. But here’s the kicker, I don’t have an update. I don’t have new pieces to share or new learnings about the medium I was hoping to improve. I DO, though, have quiet compassion for an artist and businesswoman overtaken by the day-to-day.

This year I’m completing #The100DayProject and I can’t believe that we’re already at Day 28. It has been such a rewarding and challenging experience and I’ve been so happy to share it with you all on Instagram and Facebook.
I’m well on my way to painting 100 synesthesia artworks in 100 days and I’ve been taking the opportunity to experiment with new styles and mediums. Working abstractly, I’m making my way from 100 to 1 on The Rolling Stone’s ‘The 100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far’.
Original art has always been an important part of my life. My grandfather was an artist and on every wall of my childhood home, a unique piece of art was hung. His style moved across mediums, shapes, sizes and subject. Together these pieces brightened our home and the homes of family and friends.
I think because I have grown up with so much art around, I’ve always been inspired to grow my own collection. And I want to pass some tips on to you if you want to start your own and display it proudly in your home.
International Women’s Day is one of my favourite days of the year and I am forever thinking up amazing projects that I could do to celebrate, and then falling short when it gets to crunch time. In that way, it’s also one of my least favourite days of the year. It makes me feel like I haven’t done enough, and that I haven’t done justice to the wonderful women I admire.
March 8 makes me want to create something profound. To make and share something that captures my experience of womanhood and the women that influence it. This year I am releasing myself of that pressure. Instead, I want to share a poem that speaks for itself.
March is Women’s History Month around the world and this month I intend to get into the spirit and celebrate a few of the women that helped shape the world around me. It is a month when we actively seek to uncover women’s stories from the past, so many of which remain untold. It is also a time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of women to all societies across the globe and to remember those who struggled against oppression and discrimination.
