The past few months have been turbulent to say the least… I’ve at times felt like I was in a washing machine on fast spin…!
Moving out of my studio at the end of March was a difficult decision, but I was unable to take advance bookings not knowing if the studio would be available for workshops, and marketing of open days etc. so my best decision was to leave.
I will always be very fond of my time there…
As it’s always good to reflect on where you’ve been, I’ve added a few photographs of my time at the Stables Studios… I’ve enjoyed the trip down memory lane….
You can read a blog about when these pictures were taken, written on my two year anniversary, moving in day was quite an adventure in itself….
Luckily, we have recently been building an extension and loft conversion, so I have taken over what was to be a bit of a chill out room as a temporary studio space whilst I consider my next options.
Although we have this new space to move into, much of the building work is still not finished, so my equipment is all packed away, under dust sheets, which makes it interesting when doing demos and workshops, having to locate all of the items that I would normally just be able to put my hands on… But, everything is there, so do continue to get in touch for supplies and equipment.
I have a temporary little room I am currently painting in, on a fold up picnic table, so I haven’t stopped painting, but as you can imagine, I can’t wait to get this all sorted out very soon, as it’s a bit cramped compared to what I’d been used to…!
So, this is where I’m currently at….
I have lots of ideas bubbling away in my head on my next steps, but my plan for now, is just to finish, and complete, many of the jobs that have been on my to do list for far too long…
New online courses, click and pay online, development of the Arty Heaven website and so on… oh and a new kitchen would be pretty handy too………….
Then and only then will I properly start scheming my next move…!
So, for now, occasional workshops will be held at external locations, and I will continue to show my work….
The next Exhibition will be for Bucks Open Studios from 15th – 19th June, at St John’s Church Bourne End, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP1 2RU.
and do continue to contact me for wax supplies, art and cards.
