Welcome to my new studio/gallery/shop. In July, Christian and I began renovations on this studio at the Deloraine Creative Studios. It is the 5th studio we’ve renovated and hopefully the last! I went a little crazy with the ideas on this one because, well because, you know, I can’t help it! I went with an Industrial Chic interior design and up-cycled materials as much as possible – old fence palings, crates, baskets, furniture, display props from the tip. With the help of my ever-patient husband, we built the monolithic black cabinet (to hide the ugly electrical boxes and to serve as storage), a mobile window display unit, 2 sets of funky shelves and of course the usual, plastering, painting, architraves etc. All the letters are hand painted with left over paint and yes, those are galvanised plumbing pipes, spray-painted black on the shelves. The lights are solar-powered from a panel in the window.
We had loads of fun but I’m happy that it’s finished and I can get on with working in it! Here’s a little gallery of the work in progress….
