Summer Time in the Studio

Summer Time in the Studio

As an artist I can set my own timetable and I like deadlines that are a moveable target to aim for. But some are static, like the start of the Open Studios, which is published in thousands of brochures that are distributed across Surrey. I actually love seeing my work...

Spring has Sprung!

Spring has Sprung!
