My Lady Is Waiting

I have had too much to drink. For once it’s not wine but my belly feels like it’s going to explode from an overflow of hot water, lemon, ginger and honey made by a lovely French woman.

Now that I’m in the UK, you’ll note when I say “French woman” I now mean from France. French – Canadians are to me, Quebecois. Pedantics aside, I am full and happy.

And, Dear Abyss, you’ll be happy to know I go to the studio all the time! I recently decided that it would be a good move to go back to University. After-all, some of the best art Universities in the world are in London. It would be insulting if I didn’t go.

I took some pics of the studio where I have been feverishly working on my portfolio, well, sometimes feverishly. I’ve also found incredible FREE (for the starving artists) online learning through the Tate. I sit in my studio, work on my sketchbook, sip tea, eat carrots and use excessive amounts of glue and listen to these lectures:

I am close to reaching my goal of going to the studio three times a week. I’ve rearranged some regular appointments with the NHS (National Health Service) to do so. The NHS is disheartening, working at the studio is not.

Sneaking a peek?


What a great website, Kyla! I’m so pleased you’re painting more. Thirty minutes to your studio is a long travel time in London and I admire your persistence! I can’t wait to see what you post next!

Thanks Maxine! I’m so pleased you are following my journal. I know you and I miss you. xo

Kyla Harris’s recent body of work stems from numerous NHS appointments and her experience of restricted mobility. Her installations and sculptures are of surrealistic domestic objects made from primarily used or expired medical supplies. Notions of dis/comfort, sustainability and the home are left as remnants of subverted interiors for the viewer to experience. Because of Harris's disability, much of her sculpture is collaborative. She has carers or personal assistants that construct and assist in the making of her work.
