A good day at the end of a good week. I was looking for a box of pastels that I am sure that I have somewhere, I didn’t find the pastels, or rather – before I found the pastels – […]
Studio - a-n The Artists Information Company
This week on the blog, I calm down and get reflective after a month or two of slightly frenzied painting output.
And actually get around to writing on my blog.
I know. It’s been a while.
The past week has been a bit rough – glad to be back on treatment but the drugs are strong. I must have slept for 12 hours on Friday. Before starting the new (old) chemo drugs I did manage a […]
As soon as lockdown was announced I endeavoured to adapt and continue developing my artistic practice as much as possible. What actually happened was I ended up playing with Lego. In fairness I began in earnest; visiting my studio at […]
Notes from a small town: Wednesday 22 April 2020 Until a few weeks ago I expected to be in Stockholm at this time, not just in Stockholm but at Supermarket Art Fair. Instead I find myself in here the small […]
in my recent to do list i wrote blog post reflect about studio life – my needs as a practitioner about 6 weeks into having a studio space now and it’s helping me to think differently about my practice and […]
I spent the last few days embarking upon that most arduous of tasks – sorting out my studio space. It was a curiously cathartic process which saw me tidy away my array of pencils, pens and paintbrushes; making way instead […]

Today was cleaning day. I spent the afternoon tidying and rearranging my studio space. It involved some tedious sorting through bits and pieces, throwing out empty paint tubes, acrylics that had gone hard, dead pens and so forth. I’d like […]
I’m writing about my studio, but to be honest, I’ve had no time to work in there these last few months. I have worked…. though at home, whenever I could. I’ve been trying to raise cash for future projects, so […]

So 2019, My first day back at the studio. So far, I’ve taken boards, canvases and images out ready to begin new art. I’ve drank some tea. I’ve done some editing and promotion for the Sadd Artist and I’m going […]
18 months ago we completed converting our double garage into a studio. I’ve never had a properly-equipped and stocked dedicated studio before … this is a real step up. Most of the time that went into the conversion was the […]
Alas! After 20 years of living in “paradise” my landlady died and I had to move. The chocolate-box cottage backing onto a nature reserve gave me all I needed: studio, office, venue, group meeting areas, family accommodation, a spare room […]
Often when I am in the studio or just going about things I make (mental) notes of things to write about. Last week it was about ‘packing’ – specifically how I was packing artworks to deliver to a large group […]
I have not had much time in the studio lately but now realise that what I thought was wasted time is erroneous. Subconsciously, ideas and thoughts wander round your brain wherever you are. The studio, for me, is a place […]
My first meeting with Anna – my mentor on the Konsten att delta (the Art of Participation) programme – went well. We chatted over tea and cake at the studio. The programme matches native Swedish artists with non-native artists now […]
I am currently transforming my studio – I’ve moved and painted the exterior blue, the interior has now been insulated, I’ve painted it white and building shelves and worktops. It is an equally big transformation for me psychologically as I […]
This blog documents a self-initiated, studio-based project of artist development as a response to a rejection to a mentoring scheme.
Dividing up the space Why as artists do we do what in our art? Is there always a clear answer? How much of what we do is planned and delivered according to plan and how much is instinctive or happy […]
I’ve been scratching my head trying to think what to write about this month. When I review the art I have been working on it all seems rather paltry, although I know I have been busy. This has led me […]
