A letter to all you the house of o’dwyer patrons x

June 13, 2017


I was enjoying the deluge here in London, but it did go on far for too long!




Drawing and painting




+ Editing novel and writing lyrics

Crouch down

bent double

over the counter

blunt force trauma

fill the empty interior

shut me up,

shut me down

manage the beast

stop the hysteria,

work for the tongue

roughly speaking

worship and adore

under the weather,

Come in my eye

post traumatic stress disorder

Let me go

out patient

I can suck at it myself

taste the meat

feel the heat…


Organising next Dalston Ballet show




Still vegan: Chocolate Tart perfected. Next Tiffin.




Doing air bnb




Loved Alien Covenant




… and in love with this tile




Still decorating the new house




and off to venice with Ariella and Qila.




AND rejections. But we don’t talk about that!

p.s. Couldn’t vote





What the f*^% happened to me! Hackney Wick!

May 30, 2017


Pruning roses, making vegetable stock, building structures with bamboo ! Whaaaaat?

Recently i had to move, and ended up with a little house in hackney wick. It has a garden, parking and a spare room. My mother designed the garden 10 years ago. Its real pretty with Japanese maples, roses and a cute Summer house / cabin.

It is not a shed!

However, i can not for the life of me find a housemate! And i can’t afford not to have one. My friend MD suggested Airbnb, and Wow! It’s all gone amazingly well.



Three were booked for my spare room. 4 turned up. The summer house became a beautiful cabin with double bed, shelves and storage.

It is not a shed.

Everyone was happy, i think!

Now i rent out the spare room and the cabin to some really lovely people. All are allowed free roam of the main house of course.

All the doors in the road are black. I had to go pink!



That’s the garden and cabin, which is now also pink.

Feels like my financial woes are over. For now. In getting the house ready for guests, i have become addicted to Amazon Prime.

First it was important things i needed immediately. Mattresses, quilts, antique indian bowls… they would arrive the next day.

Now it’s lampshades handmade from kimono silk, lace effect waterproof table cloths, jewel like drawer handles, cherub sculptures… !




Vegan Update:

Yes i am still vegan, although there was an incident with a slab of mature cheddar and an anchovy!



Off to my favourite city Venice in two weeks, with two amazing new friends from the Dalston Ballet crew. Gonna check out the biennale, do a bit of dancing and filming, and drink Campari from dawn til dusk! Heaven.

This is from a recent performance with the lovely qila and ariella, those friends i mentioned!




There was something else… Oh yes. For the first time in 2 months i’m back to writing and painting.

New song for Dalston Ballet coming soon!

Exhibition of portraits also coming soon…
