Today the sun is shining in my studio and spring is definitely in the air. After such a long bleak winter it is so uplifting! I hope the sun is shining where you are and bringing in some warmth and joy to your world.
Time at the studio has been scarce this month as the I have been focusing on getting fit after developing a minor back problem that developed from tattooing and spending time working on the muddle my accounts have grown into over the past two and a half years. It's strange to finally have had the time to focus on these problems and it has really made me rethink my approach to life and work. And it does feel lovely to let the work me and home me blend together a little more. It feels like a step towards a more balanced life.
At the studio we have been busy putting up lights and making the bathroom lovely. I am so lucky to work with such a clever and enthusiastic group of artists! Freya has volunteered to take over the decoration of the bathroom and we are looking forward to showing off her work next week when we reopen. I have also been replanting the window boxes and showing a little love to the sadly lonely studio plants. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
