I've been in this lovely space, with north facing windows which is wonderful in winter, for nine years now. The shop downstairs has changed hands recently and while I miss my previous "land-lady" the new owner is happy for a low-rent paying artist to scratch away in her 'bower' upstairs.
Posting a few photos of the studio filled with the materials I use for my artwork and other objects I also collect in the local charity shops, which inspire and "embower" my creative space.
View to the fireplace and the "collection"
of inspirational objects and materials
A window ledge holding a fraction of the
"mad Haberdasher's" collection and Australiana
View to one corner of the studio, with
experimental wall pieces and a growing
collection of porcelain flowers
Vintage needlepoint firescreen, with
vintage tea-towels found in Boston USA
and a bundle of my needlework finds,
the raw materials for my assemblages

and various 'treasures' from bygone eras
