Lives in South Australia
My studio is a late 1800’s shop front with a very high ceiling, a cellar downstairs, and lovely filtered light.
In the initial stage, my paintings and 3D works are very messy and quite physical - there’s a lot of sanding and scraping back and water gets sloshed everywhere -
I start in the shed outside, and then move indoors to finish the quieter phase of the work.
Can't live without..
Storage, and a lot of it - I like to have everything to hand, and being able to find thIngs at a glance is important.
Having the cellar is very handy, but it’s something of a mixed blessing - doesn’t help to curb my magpie tendencies in any way at all.
An antique boot maker’s awl - this was a gift nearly forty years ago - it fits my hand perfectly and is my favourite mark maker and general purpose tool.
A big work table - I prefer to work standing up, and it’s adjustable, so suits perfectly.
