Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

scenes from the new studio...


I've just downloaded mages from the new studio and posted extensively on the Studio Archive blog about the first week in the wonderful ambience of a fresh, clean studio.



a corner of the studio


shelves for small works, journals and such.



and a series of work on paper, many quickly rendered to work on the motif... variations on a theme.

Ohh a dream studio... Congratulations Sophie, what a great space for creating! Love seeing all your work - you're so prolific, it's impressive. I wish I had even an ounce of your energy! xxoo

It is a kind of dream Janis... had reached the point of no return... felt like something would burst or disintegrate or whatever if things didn't give or change or ...?
SO giving myself to work flow is very easy here. Plus NO internet connection, emails or such distractions from having all work tasks jostling up against each other shouting for attention.
The other thing that has happened I think is that certain ideas/learnings/processes have developed to the point now where focus on the visual feels right... that in itself is really motivating!
Also the use of a wonderful space is being exchanged for a timely role + tasks that sync well!
Merci,
xoxo

Look at this place! Lucky you! I am sure you you will make great art in there. You already started!

Sophie, please don't apologize for not visiting. I completely understand how time is never on our side.

I'm off for a stroll in your tumblr. Enjoy your new space!

Hi sophie! What a wonderful post - thank you! Your new space is already brimming with inspiration and ideas. I wish I could focus in on a subject like you have, and explore it with that insatiable thirst for a deeper understanding and love. At the moment I feel like a litterbug going from one unrelated idea to the next! How do you keep from diverging to other areas of interest? I'm so interested to know! I always feel so inspired after visiting - thanks Sophie! X donna

How great to hear from you Donna.Hope life is treating you well over there in WA!
Don't worry... I can seem to flit and dart about following interests...but somehow they all fit under the umbrella of Homage to the seed.
It allows for endless branches to explore... so maybe that would work for you... to find something broad enough to include many things you love.
Thanks for your lovely comments... wishing you plenty of inspiration and fun working.
