We recognise both the needs and economies of recent graduates and emerging artists at the early stages of their careers and reflect this in the provision of our artist studios, but it's more than just economics. Join us and become part of a friendly, dynamic community of creative people.
The team are successful artists with significant international experience in creating, promoting and exhibiting work as well as working with galleries and customers to create work which inspires, engages and can be commercially successful (if that is your aim).
