Brighton BN3 1AR
I work in the Borderline studio, situated on the Brighton/Hove border, a large pebble’s throw from the seafront.
There are about a dozen of us who rent space in this particular mews studio.
We are exhibiting during this year’s Brighton Festival for the 3rd time in the Artists Open Houses and have invited a variety of guest artists to join us.
You would be very welcome to come and visit during a weekend in May, 12-6pm. There will be homemade refreshments, live music and a great selection of work for sale - garden and other ceramics, really interesting scarves, hats, jewellery made from surprising things, paintings, prints and photos - not to mention my own monoprints, woodblock prints and so on.
There is wheelchair access and generally nice outside space, last year we had tables and chairs there and it was very pleasant.
Studio artists: Kathy Laird , Fay Green, Banu Bal, Catherine Lawrence Adams, Helen Lucas, Efamay Erskin
Guest artists: Clare McEwan , Natalie Millerchip, Mo Jackson, Cat’s Ceramics
Most of my work this year has been focussed on Brighton altough some of it is quite abstract. I have recently completed a set of 4 monoprints called In Brighton. I thought about the things that Brighton is to me. I’m proud of our taxis and the Seagulls. I really enjoy the Duke of York cinema, both inside and the exterior. Preston Park is uplifting and I’m inspired by seeing the train to Lewes trundle across the viaduct. I feel really at home amongst the quirkiness, people sharing a table with their dog in a cafe - and we’re part of a population that feels positive about its city. There is always scaffolding and building somewhere.
