Welcome to my high tech studio – a table.
This table is in the dining room so I have the pleasure of being surrounded by fighting children, teenage music and sound effects from computer games. But I have learned to tune out the chaos that is family life and just get on with it.
The most annoying thing, though, are the greasy food stains that camoflage themselves amongst the red and white dots and then suck themselves up into my painting by osmosis. I have also learned to cleverly incorporate these greasy stains (plus the occasional cat scratch, flick of child’s paint and even a creased corner) into the overall composition by incorporating additional features, extra branches and/or dense greenery being my favoured techniques!
My sister and mother have proper studios, with storage and space, and a door. But I am not envious, well not much.
I sent out my first batch of free promo codes today to book reviewers, so they can download it and hopefully write something nice. Fingers and toes crossed…
