I consider myself very lucky. I'm able to paint in the 555 square miles of the Peak District National Park. But I'm also a member and studio holder at Yorkshire Artspace Society. Membership comes with a studio, and mine is in the iconic, Persistence Works.
Built in 2001, Persistence Works was the first purpose built artist studio complex in the UK. At the heart of Sheffield's Cultural Quarter, it is home to a thriving community of around 80 artists and makers. The RIBA award winning building has 6 floors of studios, a gallery, and a spectacular atrium.
Because they are places of work, the studios are not usually open to the public. Admittance is by appointment only.
I welcome visitors to my studio. It is a rare chance to see behind the scenes, to view work in progress and to get to know more about the creative process.
Booking is essential though. So please email me here to arrange a time.
