In a moment of madness at the end of April 2016 I decided to take part in the Instagram project #the100dayproject. For the 100 day project the challenge is to make, create and stick at something for 100 days. I chose to do #100daysoftheruddynineties and mentally and emotionally signed up to it before I had thought it through and realised just what it would be like to produce a drawing or painting every day for 100 days. Ha! I'm not going to lie, there were times I got in at 1am and really didn't want to draw a bloody Furby but I stuck with it. People really got on board, as let's face it the nineties bloody rocked. I sold every piece I painted at a show in the little village that I live in and 100% of the money I raised, which ended up being £1300, went to Freedom from Fistula - a charity working in Africa helping girls and women injured in childbirth. Much to my family and close friends' despair I decided to do 100 more days of the '90s again. I began in April and will finish on July 15th. This time the money raised will go to a Lyme disease research charity.
Many of my '90s artworks, in the form of pins, prints and card are available to buy on my other website www.paperpipedreams.com and you can see all the work on Instagram under the # 100daysoftheruddynineties
