Grande Dame Talks to Whistleblower Gallery!

There’s a new gallery in Brighton and I am very happy to be one of the represented artists. Whistleblower Gallery is Dan Hipkin’s new project. Dan is a super amazing guy and was the former head curator of ink-d Gallery, Brighton. It was Dan’s keen eye for upcoming talent that really helped put ink-d on the map. He curated shows for Ryan Callanan, Carrie Reichardt, Modern Toss, Eelus, James Cauty, Jake-Wood Evans, Eine, Jon Burgerman, Peter Kennard, Sir Peter Blake, Sarah Shaw, Dan Baldwin, Lady Aiko, Paul Scott, Matt Smith, Maria Rivans, Alex Binnie, Pinky, Petro, Jamie Hewlett, Ian Hodgson, Andy Doig, Snub, Sten & Lex, Req, and myself; as well as many more talented artists.
I sat down with him a few weeks back and discussed many things, from growing up in the deep south, to early influences, animation, embroidery and more! Click either pic or HERE to read. So excited to be a part of this new artist hub! Watch this space! oxo GD

Grande Dame in Preserve Magazine!

I’m a week late with this post, as I like many others around the world have been distracted by the UK imploding on itself… But I was pleasantly surprised when I received a copy of the superbly printed Preserve Magazine by my friend Jack Booth. I am truly honoured to have been asked to be featured. There are several amazing works by many other inspiring artists inside too! I can honestly say I have never seen my work printed to such a high standard as Jack has accomplished in a magazine. The colors are spot on and the paper weight is SO LUSH! Seriously, these pages are good enough to frame and hang on the wall! Well done Jack! It’s really more like an artbook than a mag! And at £10 – a bargain! So Click HERE or the pix to get your copy! FAB! More soon! OXOGD
