Being home alone this week I have had a little more time and space to myself, which has encouraged me to to reflect a little bit. I am realising that I find it useful to have some solitude in order to think and work. I know I am easily distracted and somehow need to remove myself from the temptations. My other realisation is that I also need some outside creative input; something to fill the gaps left by tutorials when studying on the MA. I need a network of peers to motivate, encourage and critique.
Sooooo... this week I have taken the plunge and started looking for a studio space to rent - I'm still looking if anyone knows anywhere appropriate and reasonably priced. Another option I may consider is looking for a local residency.
Also I wonder if anyone else is also looking for similar support? Perhaps there could be the possibility of a small artists group of like-minded people. Let me know if you think you might be interested.
