My studio is the place to be if its too hot, too windy or too cold to work ‘au plein air’. Its a place for doing a myriad of indoor things: painting, dyeing, drawing, assembling things, all at once if I want to. Its light, generous, busy and a repository for the things I can’t throw away yet, in case I need ‘just that thing’.
