What atracted you to River Studios?

The Studio in river studios attracted me for several reasons – The industrial building, surrounding and space have their special appeal to me, as much as the proximity to the River.

In River Studios I will be working mostly with ink on paper paintings and their printed enlargements, to create installations and develop future projects.
