My first studio! I’m so grateful to have a dedicated studio now! So far in my life I’ve fitted my art in, wherever, in my home, any corner. Now we’ve insulated, lined, painted, cleaned, and I have a room of my own! It’s at the end of our garden amongst mature eucalypts, with our chickens close by for light entertainment – they also make good life drawing models, as long as I draw super-fast.
My studio, and my home, is on the edge of the beautiful Yarra Valley, which is on the edge of Melbourne, so we’re surrounded by greenery – which I find I need – but also plenty of Arts and Culture. And at last I can create, uninterrupted, for hours at a time. This has been my aim for so long!
I also built the shed on the right from scratch – I’m pretty proud of that too.
