Last year, amidst the commissions and exhibitions, I bought a house and moved away from the City.
Looking back, it’s been quite a year.
The house (a Victorian terrace) was in need of TLC. It had been left empty, cold and damp for almost two years.
We got local builders and an architect in to oversee our plans, removing the wall separating the kitchen to make the downstairs area more open-plan.
Situating the studio on the third floor, meant knocking through a wall to create one room rather than two, and removing the ceiling to expose the roof and beams, generating extra space and light.
We painted the walls white, and the wooden floor boards various shades of grey.
It’s still a little way off being finished, but it now feels like home.
