I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of her is more than I can see.
She is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see her jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
[My Shadow – Robert Louis Stevenson]
At the end of 2020 I was interviewed by Sophie Bila from Fluorescent Creative.
Fluorescent is a network that supports and promotes inclusion and diversity in the creative arts. It’s a vibrant and positive platform, where professionals currently working within the creative arts industry can share their experiences, stories and work.
It was fun to do, although English is not my first language so I was a little nervous about talking for so long! I’ve known Sophie for a long time and am so happy to be able to collaborate with her on this.
I hope you enjoy the video and please follow the Fluorescent Creative network as there are some fascinating and humbling videos from other artists.
Experiences in their small lives can be fleeting but impactful. A passing moment can trigger a nexus of thought and growth that changes the way they look at the world. The first time they encounter paper marbling, gently coercing the paint into unique swirls and patterns, they open a door to a world of creativity…
I’m excited to announce the opening of the HEYMIWA online store! Currently I have postcard prints of my original works, on sale in packs of 5 or 10.
With most of the world in isolation due to COVID19, and many people unable to physically connect with friends and family, sending a postcard is a way to remind the ones you love that they are in your thoughts. If they are really special, you could send them a different postcard every day for 10 days!
The cards are all standard postcard size and are miniature replicas of the original works. You can send them to friends and family or keep them for yourself! This is the first step towards producing more replica prints of my original work, so please watch this space and feel free to contact me directly if you have any special requests!

Singapore’s trees are ecosystems within themselves. Full of life. Providing homes for birds and insects and even sprouting new gardens of epiphytes amongst their branches. I love the way this tree twists and turns into the sky. Looking up into its canopy as the dappled light breaks through the leaves, I am sheltered and calm and I feel the heartbeat of life through its presence.
Havana is really like nowhere else. It may be a long story of highs and lows which has brought the city and its inhabitants to this point in time, but there is a pride and a depth of culture in its people and in its buildings.
Some streets appear close to disintegration, but still seem to stand proudly, bolstered by the grandeur of history and strengthened by the fortitude of its residents.
I fell in love with the city and wanted so show the rawness of its streets, rather than the groomed icons of tourism.
Light floods in through the opened shutters into the once dark room. Summer sunshine and birdsong dispersing the gloom. She can feel her heart beat as she leans forward from the dark into the light. As she inhales the fresh summer air, fragrant with scent of the lush foliage, a weight lifts from her mind..
