New House and Liberation



One of my last posts about the studio cabin never materialised and in January I moved into a really great studio at the Art House in Wakefield, the space was fantastic and just what I needed as a base of operations, my time there was short but really great and I was sad to have to move out around a month ago because....after a long time of looking I bought a house!!! with my new wife Sarah!!!

We moved in around a month ago, and there is room in the house for a permanent studio, it's hard to explain but it will be the first time ever in my professional career that I will be working (and living) in a place where all my things are, here is a brief explanation...over the past few years I've lived at home with my father (image Frasier but not as funny) and at my wife's (then girlfriends and her generous parents) and also worked at the arthouse (briefly) all of these kind of at the same time and in that time all my worldly belongings were split between 3 places, I had books here and there, desks all over the place, never having all my equipment in the same place...so to finally have everything together in one place is liberating, I feel that finally I have a permanent space that is mine I can make a mess, work late, get up early be constantly surrounded by the world that I have curated (along with Sarah!)

I feel that I can finally create in a way I've never been able to before and i'm excited by what the next few years will bring, to that end I am on the final leg of my website, it should be up in the next few weeks! at last! along with I hope a new blog and a new attitude and direction in my work, a more fruitful time!

Here is to the future.
