Notes from the Studio arose as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns.
Throughout this difficult time, many of my regular students kept in touch and I noticed a common thread running through almost all the emails I received.
Pretty well without exception, they mentioned a lack of inspiration or ideas, a lack of motivation and a kind of ongoing mental and emotional exhaustion.
In that physical and mental condition, it's a problem for anyone to get their creativity back. I know – I’ve been there.
That’s where the idea for 'Notes from the Studio' came from.
My intention is to provide it free on a monthly basis. It will be filled with a smattering of ideas, suggestions, techniques and tips to help you be inspired to get back to producing art your way on a regular basis. It will also contain updates on my workshops and a look at my latest work.
I promise I will try very hard not to be boring or overly serious. Because, at the end of the day, painting should be FUN!
