Gallery 4: Studio Life Photo Album, Classes and a Birthday
I love the life which has grown in my William Street studio. Wonderful artists and brilliant minds have shared their hearts in this quirky space. A little small by modern standards it is very close to the ideal studio size as advised by Leonardo da Vinci in his notebooks. We try and keep Leonardo's ideals alive and fill the studio with vibrant work and experiments for the mind.
