A new studio is such an exciting event for all artists. There's something so validating about what it is that you are doing when you have that space dedicated to your art.
I recently had to live without one for twenty months. The one I'd had for the year prior to that had originally been rented primarily as a storage unit. I'd managed to work there too, but it was never a place where I felt I could lose myself in what I was doing.
Well now, three moves and two years after moving out of that 'kind of' studio, I have finally found a place where there is light and life and where I can carve out a niche to create in again.
The day I unpacked my things felt like a reunion with myself.
It's early days yet. I haven't properly settled in, haven't yet settled into a routine there, haven't yet arranged my things - but I have started to work again. And it just feels amazing.
Needless to say, there hasn't been much to blog about for the past few years, but I'm back now, and I'm delighted that before too long I'm going have some creative experiences to share with you again.
Watch this space!
Send me your contact details if you would like to receive regular posts from me as and when I write them. They won't happen on a daily basis, and might not even be weekly, so they won't flood into your email box annoyingly. They will be about my process, exhibitions I have seen, artists who have inspired me and much, much more.
