Hello from the studio

Now that I’m nicely settled into the college and  the AIR studio, I guess its about time for my introductory post!

I’ve been here for a few weeks now, taking over from the lovely Hayley Mathers who gave me lots of useful advice and insights into her time as AIR over the past few months. Hayley’s show; ‘SUN’ was held at the Sculpture Workshops a couple of weeks ago and it was great to see the work she produced during her time at the college. I wrote a wee review of the show which you can have a read of here: http://2-1-4-1.com/Exhibition-Review-and-Artist-Interview-SUN-Hayley-Mathers

Having a studio again has been fantastic, since graduating in 2012 I’ve been working from home on my kitchen table which really isn’t ideal when the table has to be used for eating dinner, doing your child’s homework and making art all at the same time. In saying that, the whole process has really informed my practice over the past year or so and my hope is that these ideas and processes of working will be able to be developed in a larger and more coherent scale in the studio – but more on that later.

At the moment, I am working on a piece which will be part of a group exhibition at The Galley Arts in Carlisle (21st March – 23rd March). Myself and four other exCAPers; Caroline Gooch, David Hutton, Kailah Searle-Scott and Mairi Singleton will be exhibiting together for the first time and all showing brand new work. You can find out more about that here: https://www.facebook.com/events/605089156242995/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming

I’ll be posting updates throughout my time as AIR, and keeping you up to date with studio developments and such like but in the meantime here are some links to my website etc if you want to know more about my practice.
