From the collection of the artist

#205: It’s the year 2114. A major museum is running an exhibition on life and culture as it was in 2014. You’re asked to write an introduction for the show’s brochure. What will it say?

The year 2014. Oh how they did things differently back then! Not that it wasn’t great… they had the triumphant 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the oh-so controversial Winter Olympics in Russia, the FIFA World Cup with Germany emerging as it’s victors and of course, the gorgeous Prince George’s first birthday, but to name a few.

There were however, incredibly devastating disasters such as the disappearance of Malaysian Flight MH370, the overwhelmingly tragic crash of MH17 a few months later, the terrible wars and conflicts between Russia and Ukraine, followed shortly by the violence between Israel and Hamas and then the insanely evil Boko Haram. As the Queen used back in 1992, this year was also in many peoples minds, an Annus Horribilis!

On a lighter note, that year the world was blessed with Disney’s epic film Frozen, people of all ages were obsessed with selfies, planking and loom bands, and most importantly, same-sex marriage became legal in sixteen countries! It really was the beginning of a new era, as you will find out from this new exhibition. Get ready to step back in time!

100 Pinterest followers!

Woohoo! I’ve just reached 100 followers on Pinterest!

I originally started my Pinterest account as a different take on a diary – documenting my life with images; as well as creating a visual to do list. For example, using boards such as Places I want to see with my own eyes, My travel portfolio, My London West End portfolio and my Career portfolio

I quickly learnt that it is a very addictive form of social media and documenting your interests, because there are so many amazing pictures out there. I certainly didn’t expect other Pinterest-ers to like my collection, let alone follow in order to see my future pins. 

If you’re not on Pinterest, I definitely suggest checking it out as there’s so much to discover!
