People I admire.

So so happy to be featured in one of my favourite magazines this month. You will see that in it I talk about Peter Blake so I thought I would flesh this out with a bit more information and background.  In 1983 we went to an exhibition at The Tate (a regular haunt along with the V&A), the work of Peter Blake. This was to turn into a life long love. The work was edgy, grown up, yet funny and childish all at the same time. Hey, art doesn't have to be fusty and boring, it can be colourful and humorous, it can be created on a door or in a box. Cool. For years now I have tried to buy and collect what I could afford, a few years ago myself and a friend went to a talk given by Peter Blake at the Tate.I took him a little present of something I had made and asked him to sign a book. I introduced myself to his wife Chrissy and we got chatting, I have since been to shows of her work which is beautiful. One thing led to another and I ended up making some jewellery for Chrissy.
