I have been busy building my home/studio this year. I have been at Bankley Studios in Levenshulme since I graduated from MMU in 2007 and have loved it there. But in order to move forward with my ceramics and spend more time in the studio and less time travelling to/from it, I have decided to work from home. We moved house last year and fortunately it already had a double garage, so after quite a few alterations I now have a large, bright and more importantly, dry and insulated studio space to work from. There's still quite a bit to do like the electrics, lighting, plumbing and fitting all the shelving and worktops but that should all be finished by the end of May. I can't wait to get in there and get creative again. I haven't applied for any shows this year which will allow me to settle in and give me some creative time to work on some new ideas. More progress pics to follow.
