A whole new lease on my artistic life

Well, tired of working off my kitchen table and having the teen aged son make comments about women in the kitchen (just to rile me), and having suffered the longest dreariest winter in recent history, and completely had enough of waiting for the work to come to me…I can now report that I have done just what my horoscope advised; taken a lease on a studio in town. Not just a studio, as in a room somewhere sharing with a bunch of others, but a whole house! Well a small house- a two roomed cottage type of thing in the Production Village in Mt Cook. From there I can run art workshops for kids and adults, illustrate whatever needs my touch, write, blog and create Wearable Art. And the best thing is I have free parking so I can rock up to the door, unload my recyclables ready for transformation into art and craft and won’t have to catch the bus. If you have been following my posts, and understand my feelings about the bus service in Wellington, you will realise just what a relief that is to me!

I will be putting in a link to a new blog about forthcoming workshops in due course. So, keep an eye out. In the meantime, thanks to Google Earth and the Wellington City Council, here’s an aerial shot of where I will be from Labour Weekend. Just me, the tuis warbling in the greenbelt and a whole bunch of other artists working in the village.

Fantastic and bold move Fifi. May it bring you much pleasure and success, creatively and fiscally!

Thanks heaps Vanda; its a place to be (a room of my own)and away from the cat who offers little in the way of objectivity.
