New Studio: 2012

I have moved my studio – to a beautiful location on the edge of the Hastings Country Park and Nature Reserve. Looking out towards the sea and Fairlight.

It’s been a joint venture with Hastings Borough Council and myself and Denise Franklin. Together we have refurbished a derelict stables block, which will be a lasting legacy for artists to use in and around Hastings. Here is a picture of the Stables block with link to a location map.

New address for my studio is: Stables Studio, Stables Flat, Fairlight Place Farm,Barley Lane, Hastings, East Sussex, TN35 5DT.

It has been an adventure to achieve a long held vision which has now happened for me and fellow artist Denise Franklin.

Anny Evason and Sally Cole are the two other artists who now have a studio space too.

More photos here to give you an idea of what’s been happening to bring the stables back to use over the last six months plus the lovely builders.
