So far, the biggest challenge I have faced is my lack of studio space. I have always found it difficult (almost impossible) to make work at home. I have never viewed this as a bad thing, I find it very beneficial to view making work as if it were a job and to treat my studio like an office that I have to be in every day.
I am fortunate enough to have a rather large living room in my flat, as well as easy going flat mates who aren't bothered about me taking it over with work. I am also faced with the extra task of packing up my belongings to move out of my flat at the end of the week, clearly I am a glutton for punishment!

Without giving too much away, there will be lots of my usual collage and some more text works, and I am exploring colour and composition.
All work in the show is for sale at very reasonable prices, giving people the opportunity to own a piece of contemporary art from a recent graduate (and also ensuring that I am able to eat on my travels!). There will also be musical entertainment from the exellent Steve Herd, he doesn't have a blog but you can check out his Twitter here: @sjherd.
