I’m drawing an object and posting it to Instagram each day, for 365 days.
The objects I choose will be those that surround me in everyday life and more unusual objects that interest me.
After 365 days all of the objects will be displayed to form a self-portrait in objects.

Tutu drawings at Franfrantou gallery in Berlin, Germany.
There’s a common custom in Berlin, to leave unwanted items that might be useful to other people, in a cardboard box outside your house. In this way I acquired a child’s tutu dress.
exhibition ‘A slice of life’ at Franfrantou focused on ideas of mortality. As the drawings float and dance they conjure feelings of life and energy.
The artwork comprises of drawings in oil pastel on two different types of paper, one is glued to cardboard while the other floats freely, with cut-out drawing glued to it.
