Maggi Hambling CBE

Today was a good day. I spent the morning updating the web engines for TTG and then sauntered into UCS for a fund raising meeting with Mel Belton and others followed by a tutorial then a question and answer session with Maggi Hambling CBE – most definately not OBE as reported in the Telegraph.

December 2013 has been a strange month for me with three exhibition hangs to curate, a dissertation draft to submit and degree project images to make.
