From the beginning of June I moved into Arena Studio and Gallery I am not leaving 104 Duke Street but instead I am sharing spaces.
I am sharing spaces with my good friend the artist and co-director of Arena, Josie Jenkins. We have each given up a corner in our studio for the other to work in, I have joined Arena and Josie has joined Duke Street.
And although I love Duke Street I am finding the change of scenery is doing good for both me and my work, it is giving me new head space, to get out of my usual way of working and bad habits, allowing me to see my work in a new light and giving me permission to try something new, both which I can already see in my work. It almost feels like a residency.
