The studio I have been using alongside Michael Borkowsky since January has been unsuitable really, so we have decided to move to a new studio at Lion Works in Sheffield. I’m very much looking forward to working alongside other artists in this great community environment, complete with exhibition and workshop space.
My work has been progressing slowly this past year and I’ll be happy to pick up the pace a bit after the move. Cross-stitch work is less of a problem, as I enjoy working on that in my spare time in the evening, but my painting hasn’t moved along as quickly as I intended. Unfortunately the reality is that I have to work to afford my house and studio, and working means that I get less time to spend on my art work… which I hope one day will be my main source of income.
I’m planning a collaboration with Michael after the move to the new studio which we are both very excited about. It will involve his practice of making paints, which I will then apply to canvas. To see more of Michael’s work, follow the link to his blog below.
