July Studio Update: Hot Times

July Studio Update: Hot Times

Who says it doesn't get hot here in England? We are currently wilting our way through a record-breaking heatwave. That hasn't stopped me from all manner of making that involves heat: paper burning, hot blown glass, and welding.

June Studio Update

June Studio Update

While summer weather may not actually arrive here in England this year, there's plenty of daylight for long hours in the studio this time of year. Good thing, since there are lots of exciting things underway.

April Studio Update

April Studio Update

The easterly winds from Siberia have finally stopped blowing here and sweet Spring is for real, it seems. All the more reason to embrace good things happening in the studio, including new work and a minor studio accident!

March Studio Update

March Studio Update

March roared in with a heavy workload and travel-wrecking winds, but that didn't thwart efforts to finish and ship eighteen pieces of original artwork, introduce a new series, and participate in a one-week residency in Germany. Read on for all the details. "Out like a lamb" feels elusive but I'm optimistic!

February Studio Update

February Studio Update

If you can believe it, the light is already rising here in the UK with afternoons growing a tiny bit longer each day before it gets dark. I am always heartened by this, even in gloomy February. It reminds me that Spring is coming with the darkest days behind us.

Which was the theme for my installation at last month'sBlue Monday exhibition at 44AD Gallery in Bath, shown above. 

In the meantime, things are humming in the studio where we're working on 15 pieces for three separate projects that all will be finished before it's officially Spring next month. For a peek behind the scenes and more, read on!

I'll be discussing new work for my MA Fine Art at Bath Spa Uni, a recent pop-up residency at The Cells in Trowbridge with Angel Greenham, and how this all fits into my commercial practice for the international designed interiors market.

October Studio Update

It's been a packed October with lots happening with on all fronts, including two exhibitions, new art sales and rentals, a new term at school, and Affordable Art Fair Battersea London. Plus I managed to squeeze in a quick trip to the US to see loved ones!  

September Studio Update

September Studio Update

It's been a month of school-focused commitments, an exhibition to mark the half-way point in my MFA, plus a bit of jail cell magic sprinkled into the mix (no, I didn't commit a crime).

August Studio Update: Wrapping Up

August has been a nice balance between head-down work at my school studio in the thick of research and gearing up for some great opportunities and client work in the autumn.
