New business cards!
I've merged my personal website (formerly fragilityofself.co.uk) with The House of Smalls website as I was finding it far too expensive to have both. I don't expect anyone looking at the House to also look at my page, it's just a way to keep it all together!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! 🖤
It’s a year today since the first show, Facing It, opened in the original House of Smalls, and what a year it’s been. I can’t thank the 28 artists who exhibited in that show enough for taking a chance with an unknown during such a tumultuous period, and for subsequently supporting me and the House throughout.
Through difficult times it’s been fantastic watching the interactions between artists and viewers; friendships formed; honest emotions, feelings, thoughts and opinions shared.
Thank you so, so much to the 129 exhibiting artists from 18 countries for being a part of the 5 shows; for your unwavering support of the House and each other; and for putting your trust in me to show the works as intended. I’m so proud that 118 of the 129 artists are women. A special thank you to alabamathirteen and Melody Thornton who have featured in every show, and to those artists who have returned 2, 3, 4 times. Without you all The House of Smalls wouldn’t exist.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to submit work for shows - I’ve been overwhelmed by the quality (and quantity) of work that comes in with every call and it’s impossibly difficult to make final selection.
Thank you so much to Catherine Oliver, my guest co-curator for The Time of Her Life, for everything, and to the women who participated in that show and literally laid themselves bare - each sharing her unique experiences with such honesty in humour, anger, through trauma; one sentence, a paragraph or more - out of it came an overwhelming sense of togetherness through this mutual and inevitable but highly individualised time of our lives.
Thank you so much to Janet Cawthorne for including the House in her Art in Lockdown: Through the Keyhole series with Flux Exhibition’s magazine, The Flux Review. I thought we’d get a small mention, never did I expect a 2-page spread!
And last but by no means least, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the House throughout the year by connecting, commenting, sharing and donating - I’ve been truly humbled by your support, words and friendship.
It’s been amazing.
