things to see: Vancouver, exhibitions

I'm super excited to be doing my first exhibition roundup in Canada! The art scene isn't quite as prolific, or should I say overwhelming here as in London, but London is a bit of a beast - and often there's so much to choose from that you always end up missing things.

Scaling back your art practice for long term travel – the early days

I'm still in the early days of this, but I had to do some serious thinking about what materials to bring with me to Canada.

We went to House of Small Wonder for breakfast during our trip to Berlin back in early April. The setting was something else, as you enter the place you're met with a spiral staircase surrounded by plants and trinkets. There are menu highlights on chalkboards framed by old windows, and the wallpaper is green and… Continue reading things to eat: House of Small Wonder // Berlin
