If you've not visited and artist studio before you might not know what to expect. Here is what you can expect when you visit my studio.
A nice cup of tea for starters . Once you have that, you can browse through my sketch books, look at the materials I use, and see the process I go through to make my art. Don't be afraid to ask questions or to touch things. I spend such a lot of time alone in my studio, that visitors are welcomed with open arms!!
There will be work for sale, however not everyone who visits will buy art, it's nice if someone wants to take something home but it's just as lovely to see people appreciate the work. There is certainly no pressure from me to buy anything so don't worry about visiting and walking away with just memories!
I will have a range of materials laid out so if you fancy creating something yourself or simply having a play with materials, you can have a go!
Most of all, visiting an artist's studio can be an insight into the world of the artist. Each studio is unique and it's like walking into someone's brain!! Usually a private space, visiting a studio is a special exchange between artist and viewer. I really hope you'll accept the invitation to come and take a step into my world. I look forward to seeing you.
Just a quick note, my studio is up a flight of stairs and I might bring Spike, my dog , into the studio on some days, he's not very friendly with other dogs so if you are thinking of bringing yours please phone first so I can pop him in his crate. ( rescue dogs come with rescue issues!!) tel 07793 649 662
