The rest of my day I spent moving into my new studio at Trine's house; Studio Søtten. Soon it should be filled with new sketches, we already have to many ideas that needs to be put into action. So until then I'm bringing my camera everywhere, as if not to let anything slip away...
More news will come from our new studio, Studio Søtten, soon I hope! We still need to tidy up and sort all our stuff, mine is still carefully wrapped and packed in their shipping boxes. I can hardly wait to have it all in front of me, all materials in one place and a blank page to start fresh... Sounds good, but also quite intimidating! At least I won't be alone, and that helps on motivation I think. Here's a peak at our studio view, easy access to inspiration and quick walk to calm the head! Should be good:)
They're based in my hometown Arendal in Norway, and I'm eager to see them in action! Also, I'm very proud to see them using the logo on all kinds of products, I think I need to get one of the bags above myself (does it come with the dog perhaps?). So if you happen to be southern-Norwegian-dog-enthusiast you should definately check out amokk.no.
If you're not in Norway however, but should happen to be around Glasgow the coming week, I will exhibit drawings and prints at the Glasgow Art Fair from 23-26 of April. Never been to the fair before, so I'm looking forward to see it all! You can find my work at stand 35, where I'm represented by Compass Gallery.
Spring is on its way, I love waking up to the bright light in my room, and even walk home in daylight after work! At the moment I'm trying to find the time to do new work while building up my portfolio, getting it out to companies and galleries, planning a new website and what I like the most is my new membership at Edinburgh Printmakers. I just joined last week, started making some lovely photopolymer prints that I'll make sure to show here once I pick them up. It was so nice to be back in a larger creative environment again, and I had a sneaky peek at what everyone else was doing. It's looking good:)
I also spent most of the weekend in the good company of fellow artist Trine, and as the Edinburgh weather is in a friendly mood these days we went out to draw. The pictures are taken from the roof top of the National Museum, which has a great view! (ok, a bit windy up there)
