sweating blood..tearing out hair...

Writing about myself for a gallery I hope will consider my work.

Brain blank and freeze...procrastination....I've got thus far....

"I am an artist,mainly in clay, and ink on paper.   I have been doing this for over fifty years.   At present I am concentrating on lino-printing, having not had a clay studio since 2012 when I moved to Scotland from Wales. I hope to return to clay again soon "

Its a beginning.  Should I mention Art college?

The dreaded "artist's statement" will take a little longer, but must be faced!

I must try and list the exhibitions and galleries I've been in and the associations and cooperatives worked with.....

You're getting there...throw in your value system and the biking maybe!

I am sure galleries will be very pleased to showcase your work and your art speaks for itself, a reference to your blog would be good as its such an honest progress report of your creative journey. Good luck.

Oh, god, the artist statement. Throw out pieces of yourself; it's what they want.
