Thought I'd share a few photos of my studio space. I'm very nosy - and think most creative people are - I absolutely love looking into other people's spaces, so wanted to offer mine up in the hope other's would share theirs with me. The studio I rent is in the S1 complex in Sheffield - it's open plan, split into 3 main 'rooms', and I'm in the backroom, which has a lovely community feel and a gorgeous skylight. It is the coldest room though, so the winters are challenging...
I find having a studio really important to my practice - I'm not very structured about being there for a certain amount of time everyday religiously, but it definitely gives a sense of discipline and boundary to a working day. Generally I'm more relaxed about doing textiles and research at home and use the studio as a drawing space, but I move all the textiles in there as soon as they're finished. For me, it's important that both sides of my practice remain in conversation, even when they're effectively in 'storage'.
Have a nosy at a few more photos - including my horrendous under desk 'storage' piles...
And here's how I protect drawings that aren't framed yet... A highly sophisticated system.
Semi regular updates of what I'm doing & making.
