After the February 22nd Christchurch earthquake – an update:

Dear friends and clients – thankfully we were unhurt and my home and studio didn’t suffer any major damage during the recent earthquake – in fact we used my wee studio as a place of refuge during the subsequent aftershocks that battered our city. 11 days later I feel ready and I’m now in a position to create again. I have picked up and put all my tools and workbench back in place and it feels wonderful to know I still have my little sanctuary in tact and it’s a safe space to create. I’m certain the very act of creating will become a major part of my healing process.

ConneXion – the beautiful gallery we worked so hard to rebuild is now behind the police cordon in the central city and unable to be accessed for quite some time. I still haven’t heard how Magma Gallery in Lyttelton fared but I’m hoping they and their lovely gallery are all right. I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, everyone that has sent messages of love and support – they have meant the world to me in these very trying times. Although I couldn’t access the computer for the first week – I knew they would be there, waiting for me in my inbox and sure enough they were!
