Studio


UPDATE, JANUARY 2021…
In October my family and I moved house, so I had to dismantle my lovely studio in Bedfield. I’ve created a new temporary facility in Earl Soham Business Centre and I’ll be using this for the next few months while I build a brand new, purpose-built, fully-accessible studio in the grounds of our new home.
As the Covid situation continued to get worse, I closed the doors of my temporary studio as I couldn’t be 100% that it was Covid-safe. I’ve done some work now to re-arrange things and move towards re-opening once the current lockdown eases. I will update here and on socials as soon as the Risk Assessment is done and I’m able to be confident that I can offer a safe and creative working environment.
