You can never have enough space, right? Yet, the more space you have, the more stuff you seem to collect.
I think an artist needs nature, rather than a city, to focus, create, and make art.
My studio is in Giggleswick, North Yorkshire, UK. I have access to a sunny ceramics studio as part of a one-year residency program facilitated by a lovely old school that was founded in the sixteenth century.
"The best part about my studio is the freedom of having my own space to do as I please. I enjoy not having to worry about creating an unholy mess and the chance to make radical alterations at 1 in the morning after a trip to the pub."
There is a nondescript metal door that leads upstairs to the Side Door Studio. For me, it’s the equivalent of Platform 9 3/4 in Harry Potter. It seems like a magical transformation going from the outside world into a place where artists work.
