How random is this?!

It's such a surreal feeling that the thoughts I record on this could be read by anyone, so I suppose I should start by introducing myself. My name is Nicolette Hollindale and I am a Fine Art Graduate from Oxford Brookes University. When not in Oxford, I reside in Chester with my family, Mum and Dad, twin brother Chris and little sister Emma.

As I write this I have just returned to Oxford, having experienced a surprisingly enjoyable train journey, listening to the LEGEND that is Elton John. I have become slightly apprehensive of catching the train recently. As many of you know I seem to attract horrendous (humorous in hindsight!) situations(usually not my fault!), including not being able to get off... WHOOPSIE! "What do you mean the next stop is London!!!", men in wheel chairs, carriages like ovens, trees on the line, random drunkards... "Alright shorty!" and "Are you Irish?" (Classics!), and platform changing stampedes at Birmingham New Street to mention but a few!!

I have now returned back to the city of dreaming spires, in preparation for our upcoming exhibition, 'CORE' taking place at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. With the Private view looming just 3 days away, we are facing our biggest challenge yet with only 36 hours to install the entire show!!! We cannot wait to embark upon this new adventure, with the advantage of being an extremely hard working group of perfectionists and eternal optimists to stand us in good stead and with a determination to make this our most successful show to date!

Now is the time to use the experiences and skills we have learnt from our Degree Show as a springboard for our CORE exhibition!!
