I am at the Lock-Up Cultural Centre in Newcastle doing a residency for the next two weeks (until 21 May) and then doing another stint in late August-early September.
The project and The Lock-Up’s Artist in Residence program is proudly supported by ArtsNSW, The University of Newcastle and the Hunter Street Art School, TAFE.
For the duration of the residency, I will be keeping a blog. I haven’t kept a blog since my ‘Disenchanted Mongolian Pony’ blog about 10 years ago. This one will be a lot less self-indulgent, I promise you. Visit www.emmainnewcastle.blogspot.com.au to see how my residency is going.

It’s been a long standing hope of mine to work with the amazing Amanda Henderson and her team at Gloss Creative… and I got my wish at Christmas 2013!
With Ross Sabatini, I provided artwork for the installation at QV, “Dream a little dream”.
See the pictures on the Gloss Creative blog. Thank you Amanda!
The exhibition “Myths and Legends of the World” at Aram Nuri Art Museum in Goyang, South Korea continues until 2 March 2014.
You can see my works ‘Goyang Series’ here. They are inspired by the story of King Anjang and Beautiful Hanju, who fall in love when he is a spy in her city, and must overcome adversity before they are united and Hanju becomes his queen.

I am really excited and honoured to have my work, Theodora (pictured) included in this huge and exciting exhibition in Manchester, UK.
This wide-ranging survey of the practice of paper cutting also includes the amazing work of some of my favourites, including Kara Walker, Mia Pearlman, Béatrice Coron, Peter Callesen and Rob Ryan.
After Manchester, the show continues to two more venues later in 2013 – I’ll keep you updated as the show moves around.
