It's curious to relive the visual journey. There's nothing like filming the process to relive the 'why did I do that?' moments.
The edge of the fold.
The home of contention and conjecture,
Not either or but both and.
It's just where the horizon touches.
Some lifetimes ago, a sixteen year old version of me failed to get the place in art school that she'd pinned all her early hopes to.

Every day I learn something new. Some days its to do with drawing, but more often it's a bigger learning about the bigger world. I can't always articulate the enormity of these lessons. But I will have a go: Here's the next 7 learnings I've uncovered!
