Hi I’m Auntie G and I live in Bristol with two cats – one feline and one human.
How my blog came about was four artists were organising a fabulous show in 2017 called ‘3 is a Magic Number’ it had such a brilliant selection of Bristol and South West artists at all stages of their career I really wanted to get behind them in promoting it. So this blog was born.
From there I then interviewed a number of my favourite Bristol artists before getting round as many artists as I could for 2017 Upfest.
Just after the artist’s show I was asked to curate work for The Shakespeare in Totterdown Bristol (so my first pop-up). I realised I also needed to promote them so The-Kane.Gallery came into place. Since then I’ve curated, co-curated and have a new show coming up at The Bocabar Paintworks Bristol from 10 September 2018 (more details coming soon).
My background is thirty years in marketing and corporate training. I now work with artists on promotional projects as well as coaching for creative blocks / thinking / moving forward. If you are curious – have a look at my website: Auntie G.
I rather feel this life with artists and other creatives has found me and I am delighted it has. I am surrounded by madness and I am very much at home.
