This week, I have set myself a task to set up a sculpture tombola! This is because I'm fed up with the art market and the fact that normal everyday people can't afford the shit that goes in the galleries. Let's face it, alot of it is crap and it makes me wonder why people pay so much for it. I've come to the conclusion that it's all in the name and the hype of it being in a posh environment that gives it that value and it's got nothing to do with the actual work. I wanted to make art that everyday people can buy and I wanted the money to got to a good cause. So, I'm charging 50p a ticket, you get a 50/50 chance of winning and the money is going to a charity that helps the visually impaired. I'm hoping it will all run to plan, fingers crossed!

I seem to have put all my efforts to waste, well that's what it feels like at the moment. It seems you have to be arrogant to get noticed around here. Well screw you arrogance! I don't need you. I've been spending a lot of this week organising a Christmas Fayre for charity and I'm hoping it's going to pay off on Saturday. I might feel a bit better then...

I felt I have been developing my work rapidly recently. From hanging to a piece on the floor, I have incorporated polystyrene balls back in to my work and formed a sensory piece. This has come about due to an exhibition opportunity and me changing my work slightly in order for it to fit in to the context and be ready for exhibition. I have also experimented using lighting and film which give different edges to the work.
