Studio views

My studio is essentially a private place, but I’m curious about other people’s spaces so thought I ought to share mine…


I’ve had my studio for four years now, so I’ve had plenty of time to organise it to my liking.  It’s set up for working on paper with charcoal, pastel and inks, which is why there’s no paint on the floor.  What you can’t see here is the layer of charcoal dust clinging to everything – sometimes I have to hoover my drawing board!


This wall is a sort of vertical shelf where I stick up ideas in progress, things that look scruffy but may in fact be useful to my thought processes.


Being on the 8th floor has its benefits (unless the lift’s broken) and I love my view out across the Firth of Forth.  The Edinburgh velodrome below is an entertaining distraction during the racing season. 

If you fancy seeing Art’s Complex for yourself there are regular Open Studio events which I participate in.  If you are interested in my work in particular please contact me to arrange a studio visit – I may even dust!
